Having witnessed the interim results of the major banks over the last few weeks i noticed that most (if not all) reported positive results. However, while a few of the share prices increased on positive results many decreased.
Can anyone offer any insight into the variables connected with positive or negative results which may make the price increase or decrease.

Cheers

Good and Bad Results are already priced into the market

Its all about expectations - you may have heard the phrase "Beat the Street"

For instance Barclays suprised the market by posting better than expected results - you can see this on the chart - it was on a nice down trend and then it gapped up - catching out the market

So you have to be careful with open positions when it comes round to report time
