You can find the hard numbers all over the web, but only on StockTwits can you find real-time parsing of the new data, what it all means, and more importantly -- how investors feel about it. Here are some notable comments and interpretations on the household names reporting after the bell today.

1. Amazon (AMZN):

$AMZN a meet for a mo-mo stock is really a miss ... gets closer to Old Stodgy stock status when that happens

-- The Sears (@JSears68) Apr. 24 at 02:09 PM

Amazon beats on sales. So much for the lousy weather and weak $UPS #s hurting the company. $AMZN up after hours.

The one thing $AMZN continues to show time and time again is illustrated on this chart http://stks.co/i0XBu

2. Microsoft  (MSFT):

$MSFT's beat on EPS makes me think people are actually interested in profits again? Revenues in-line with expectations.

$MSFT within 13 pts of 1999 highs

$SBUX have a little position on this. seems that they didnt do that bad with the quarter and the guidance is definitely solidd

4. Visa  (V):

$V those are very good numbers. Solid company making tons of cash. People can play games with the pps if they want. Going up mid-long term
