As the selling pressure abates, the stock price slowly rises to the correct level. On the other hand, if the earnings announcement is negative, the stock price falls. But it does not fall sufficiently because individual investors continue to hold on to the stock hoping to recoup their losses. The stock eventually reaches the correct price but with a delay due to the behavioral biases of the investors.
