Today was a busy day with some important companies reporting their financial results for Q3' 16 from different sectors in US economy.

Before the market open - Bank of America (Financials) reported higher than expected quarterly results for Q3 ' 16 (0.41 vs 0.34). The price rose in the pre-market trading, but closed lower than the open price leading by the whole market sentiment during the last hours of today's trading.

After the market close -  IBM (Technology) and Netflix (Consumer Services) reported higher than expected EPS for Q3' 16 after the close of today's session. These results lifted their stock prices during the after-hours trading. The expected EPS for Bank of America was 3.23, whereas the reported EPS was 3.29, almost 2% missed the expectations. Netflix was a real surprise for the investors as the expected EPS was just 0.06/share, whereas the reported EPS was higher 2 times reaching 0.12/share. This lifter the stock price with 20% during the trading hours after the market close.
