Not necessarily. The biggest factor will be outlook revenue and earnings. People tend to judge the future more than the past. Stock prices can be very fickle, changing in the wrong direction on what seems like good news. What was the expected earnings by the company forecast, analysts, and whisper numbers? What were the revenues? Any issues in cash flow?
Often, prices rise before the announcement and fall unless exceeding expectations.
I own shares in CAI International, a shipping container leasing company that is highly leveraged(lots of debt)
https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/CAI?p=CA...
January 1 - February 1 $27.90 to $31.71 a a 12.8% price range over a month.
Traded down, opened February 9th at $24.15, intraday at $21.77 and closed at $23.23
Back up to $26.65 on February 14th before the earnings announcement.
Opened at $23.80 February 15th with the earnings announcement. Traded as low as $20.64 and closed the week at $21.90.
February 14th News after hours earnings-
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/cai-inter...
CAI International beats 4Q profit forecasts
On a per-share basis, the San Francisco-based company said it had profit of $1.81. Earnings, adjusted for pretax gains, were $1.03 per share. The results exceeded Wall Street expectations. The average estimate of four analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was for earnings of 86 cents per share. The transportation finance and logistics company posted revenue of $94 million in the period, falling short of Street forecasts. Three analysts surveyed by Zacks expected $96.7 million.
$3.68 per share earnings. At $23.80, Trailing 12 month P/E of 6.5
$27.65 Q4 Book Value Per Share
They had a large tax gain, but operations earnings of $1.03 for the quarter is good.
The price fell 11% on a high EPS, above expectations!
It is an above average risk investment with a high debt load that price fluctuates.

Not usually. There are analysts who watch all quarter how the companies appear to be doing.

Sometimes. It is not the only factor. It may even go down at times. or just up a small amount. What I look for is the dividend they pay per month or quarter and whether it has been rising or not over the years. A stock with a crappy dividend is of no interest to a buy and hold investor like me.

It can, but it really depends. It normally depends on whether the shares beat the predicted EPS for the quarter. Analysts do their research and try to come to a consensus on what the EPS should be. If the shares beat the predicted EPS, then share price generally goes up. How much they gain is much more complex than just beating a predicted EPS. Conversely, if the shares don't beat the predicted EPS, it's likely that they will take a loss. Again, how much depends on a myriad of factors.
