Is there a trend in the data?

The large miss has put a dent in the trend and overall flat for the last six months.

What number would constitute a change in the trend?

Not applicable but a number less than 210 could mean a change in trend in these numbers.

What would be a big beat/miss?

Exp is for 185k

Between 160k to 210k. Would treat as inline / slight beat miss.

160k to 135k would be a miss. 210k to 245k would be a beat.

Below 135k would be a big miss and above 245k would be a big beat.
