I'm not taking a big risk with Tableau Software (DATA) here, but with the stock down more than 35% after hours, I would anticipate most of the downside is priced into the call. From a risk-reward standpoint, I measure it as risking a 5% to 7% downside versus a 15% upside here at $51, but this is still risky, so stay small.

Absolutely destroyed here afterhours. Took a small long trade at $51 into the conf call
After hours, LinkedIn (LNKD) is testing the $150 area after terrible guidance. The stock is down 22%.
Let me take another crack at the preceding post.

A Taxing Issue With Oil Real Money Pro($)

A $10 "tax" per barrel of oil to fund green transportation investments from the government would most certainly be passed down to the consumer. I'd estimate that to be around 52 cents per gallon. According to the Department of Transportation, the average person in their prime working years drives 15,291 miles, so this tax has the potential to sap nearly $8,000 per driver from working families. According to the U.S. Census, the average salary in the U.S. is $81,400.
While we've had a few outsize afterhours movers, most of the big earnings names have remained within expectations during the following day's trading session. Facebook (FB) was the one big name I can think of recently that did not. I believe we'll see another tonight with LinkedIn (LNKD).
We'll kick off the day Friday with the non-farm payrolls report along with unemployment data. Expectations are for the creation of 195,00 jobs and a 5.0% unemployment rate. Unless we see a big beat to the upside, I don't think this data is going to do much for the market.
My wife stopped by Target (TGT) yesterday because, well, it was open. I'm pretty sure they greet her like Norm from "Cheers" upon entry.
"Look at all these rumors surroundin' me every dayI just need some time, some time to get away fromFrom all these rumors, I can't take it no more."
