AOL in a Moon-shot While Tesla Stalls in the Woodshed

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Earnings volatility continued this week as the old-Internet pioneer AOL (AOL - Get Report) took off in a moon-shot after its earnings beat expectations premarket on Tuesday. Then in afterhours trading the luxury electric automobile manufacturer Tesla Motors (TSLA - Get Report) reported an earnings beat, but the stock took a turn to the woodshed on a miss of what's was called analysts' whisper numbers.

On Monday I wrote Earnings From AOL to Zillow Includes Tesla Today and Tomorrow where I showed four buy rated stocks out of 11 including AOL. This morning AOL and one other stock were downgraded to hold from buy. Tesla maintained a hold rating according to www.ValuEngine.com.
