Analysts moods

Listen carefully to the analysts' tone as they ask their questions. Take time to assess their moods. Do they seem downbeat? Are they asking very probing questions, or are they upbeat and congratulating the executives on their performance? When analysts are disappointed with a company's results, they dig for more information and ask for more details about the areas where they see a problem. The call's discussion focuses on past results and how management can improve future results. When analysts are happy with the results, they encourage further discussion about future results and plans.

You may find it difficult to judge the mood of the analysts or company executives when you listen to your first call, but as you listen to more and more calls for the same company, you'll be able to judge more easily how the mood differs from that of previous calls.
