CME’s Mixed Bag (CME)

October 29, 2008 by Douglas A. McIntyre

CME Group Inc. (NYSE: CME) has reported earnings of $2.81 GAAP EPS on revenue of $681 million, but non-GAAP earnings were $4.13 EPS if you include NYMEX and CME merger operations. 

The numbers today are going to be harder for analysts and traders to interpret because of all the combined businesses.

First Call had estimates for the futures and commodities exchange giant at $3.98 EPS and $644.3 million in revenues. 

Shares closed up 0.5% at $265.00 in regular trading and shares are down at $260.00 in after-hours trading.
