Nov 26, 2012 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) -- When DIRECTV (NASDAQ:DTV) reported earnings 20 days ago on November 6th, 2012, analysts, on average, expected the company to report earnings of $0.92 on sales of $7.4 billion. DIRECTV actually reported earnings of $0.90 per share on sales of $7.4 billion, missing EPS estimates by $0.02 and beating revenue estimates by $16.5 million. Shares of DIRECTV have slipped from $50.51 to $49.49, representing a loss of 2.0%, since the company reported earnings 20 days ago.

In the past 52 weeks, shares of DIRECTV have traded between a low of $39.82 and a high of $55.17 and are now at $49.49, which is 24% above that low price. Over the past week, the 200-day moving average (MA) has gone up 0.2% while the 50-day MA has remained constant.
