So the end result delta from MTC to OW is not looked at when dealing with the rule? Just the fact that the OW is either lower or higher

than MTC (based on RS's guess), even if it's by a negligible amount?

RS mid 50s vs. 45... uh-oh. {nm}   second gary on Feb 28, 08:59

Have we had a downward MTC vs RS thingy yet this year? Or have they all been uppers? {nm}   Paul2k on Feb 28, 09:05

Several. GDEED just this past weekend, for example. (25 RS, 18 MTC, 16 OW) {nm}   RogerMore on Feb 28, 09:12

(There was also 1MONY - rule didn't work, MYSTR - rule was way off, and WLUST - rule worked, but may have been due to an RS typo) {nm}   RogerMore on Feb 28, 09:17

Isn't it supposed to be a bigger difference? or does the rule "predict" direction? {nm}   Paul2k on Feb 28, 09:18

By difference, I mean the actual OW being much higher or much lower than MTC? {nm}   Paul2k on Feb 28, 09:18

The rule is: if MTC is significantly greater than RS, the OW will be greater than MTC. Similarly, if MTC is significantly less than RS, the    RogerMore on Feb 28, 09:23

And all this says is that RS is made up of crackhead analysts who can't even read their own research.   TheWeekendWarrior on Feb 28, 09:24

No one's saying to follow the rule blindly. It's just another tool to use (and it gives us something to talk about on a slow day) {nm}   RogerMore on Feb 28, 09:27

Yeah, I can't imagine it being much lower than that. That freaking Lorax is everywhere right now. {nm}   Ruthian23 on Feb 28, 09:36

That's my understanding. {nm}   RogerMore on Feb 28, 09:40

WLUST as well (RS: 18, MTC: 8, OW: 6.5); but I don't know the difference is big enough here, only 18% {nm}   xiayun on Feb 28, 09:17

I thought RS was low teens (i.e. 13)... wasn't that big a gap between them. {nm}   TheWeekendWarrior on Feb 28, 09:29

Even if it's low-teen, the percentage is big enough for the "rule" to be validated {nm}   xiayun on Feb 28, 10:26

Thanks {nm}   horlicks on Feb 28, 08:41

Man... I was hoping it was going to say 60. :) {nm}   dioneta on Feb 28, 09:15

+1 {nm}   DOW53 on Feb 28, 09:51

Lorax does 52 for the weekend {nm}   UNIVXFund on Feb 28, 14:36
