Keep in mind that jumping into a stock right as it gets ready to report means you likely won’t have enough time to build a profit cushion before the release. That leaves you exposed to a sudden downturn if the company doesn’t deliver the type of numbers analysts were looking for. You can reduce your exposure by waiting to see how the company reports and how the market reacts.
