Moon-shots for Google and Chipotle Lead Earnings Scorecard

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Last week I provided my buy-and-trade profiles for 19 companies in two posts.

On Wednesday I wrote, Goldman Sachs and Google Headline Thursday's Earnings and covered 12 companies; Eight beat EPS estimates, three missed and one matched. The first of the two headliners beat on EPS but missed on revenue and the new Dow component slipped slightly. The second of the headliners was a huge winner and traded above $1,000 a share for the first time ever on Friday.
