Hasbro Makes Earnings Moon-shot as Netflix Nearly Makes It

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The market reactions to earnings reports on Tuesday and Wednesday were quite diverse. We had a moon-shot for a toy maker Hasbro (HAS - Get Report) and a failed moon-shot for a Netflix (NFLX - Get Report), a seller of video content from the cloud. Five stocks were taken to the post-earnings woodshed, while two set new multi-year highs. Five moved sideways to down, while two moved sideways to up.

Last Friday I wrote McDonald's and Netflix Headline Monday's Earnings and covered five key earnings reports. The first headliner traded slightly lower, then stabilized. The second headliner opened with a moon-shot that failed to hold its orbit.

On Monday I wrote United Technologies and Harley-Davidson Headline Tuesday's Earnings and covered 11 key earnings reports. The first headliner moved sideways to down, while motorcycles roared higher but then did a wheelie.
