I love when I’m pleasantly surprised, especially if I was expecting something average, and I end up getting something spectacular.
Beating expectations is always a virtual guarantee that a stock will go up, making investors very rich. Especially if they had some kind of inside information that other folks didn’t know.
For example, say a company is “expected” to report earnings of twenty five cents a share. Then they report earnings of thirty cents a share. Since this is higher than expected, the stock will generally go up.
And those that have inside info can usually make a killing.
Of course, most normal folks never get in on this kind of information, unless you know someone who knows someone.
But beating expectations doesn’t only happen in the stock market.
It happens everywhere.
Like if you hear that a movie is pretty terrible, and you go see it anyway.
If it’s just average, you’ll actually enjoy it. Since you were expecting a terrible movie, and you got an average one, you are pleasantly surprised.
People that sell things have known about this trick for a long, long time.
Companies that last a long time know it’s always better to under promise, and over deliver.
You promise a product that does X, yet you deliver a product that does X, Y, and Z.
Meaning the customer gets much, much more than they thought they were getting.
This also a good strategy at work. You tell your boss you can have the report done by Friday, when you’re pretty sure you can get it done by Wednesday. You take your time, and deliver it on Thursday.
He thinks you busted your ass, and gives you mad props. Only you know the secret.
Knowing how to do things like this can give you a decided advantage. But only you will know you’ve got an advantage.
Everybody else will think you’re some kind of super star.
The thing is that this is only one way to get a leg up.
