Why does the stock price drop sometimes with good news?

Posted by Alistair Kingsworth on Jul, 31 2023

Well, folks, let's dive into this perplexing world of stocks. You might think, "Hey, good news should definitely boost my stock prices, right?" Well, not necessarily! Sometimes, the stock market throws a curveball and prices drop even with great news. This happens because the market often gets a whiff of the news before it's officially announced and prices in the expectations. So, when the news finally hits, it’s more of a "meh" than a "wow". It’s like getting socks for Christmas after weeks of hinting you wanted a new gaming console. Not quite what you expected, huh?
