Is it priced in?
I often see financial blogs talk about bad news being the reason for going short, or good news being a reason for going long. But, if the bad news is all over the place, or the good news is all over the place, why wouldn't that news be priced in?
I also see blogs like "the stock is down on an up day" or "the stock is up on a down day" meaning the trend has reversed for that stock. Why not look at it as a buying opportunity? If the stock is down on an up day maybe it is a fluke and it should be up on the next up day?
Or if a stock plummets on earning it means investors have lost confidence. If they lost confidence, why would they lose even more confidence to send it lower?
Do you fools have any indicators/insights to tell if the news or price action is already baked into a stock?
