INSP is expected to lose a nickel per share for its 4th quarter. We expect the internet company to announce earnings that will beat investors’ and analysts’ expectations.

InfoSpace has a wild history of earnings surprises, either hitting or missing in a big way. The average earnings surprise for the last 4 quarters has been plus or minus 800%. We don’t expect that trend to end tomorrow.
The stock also has a history of jumping around a lot post earnings. It’s not uncommon to see the stock move in the 15 to 20% range following its quarterly check up. According to our technical analysis, this stock is poised to move to the $9-$9.50 range following muscular earnings.
