this will get ugly for after hours buyers of upped earnings guidance and increased share repurchases
actually the higher guidance is just a function of the lower sharecount given the increased buyback activity - the Q4 same store sales increase was in fact the weakest for more than 2 years, cash generation was lower than last year and overall revenue and earnings were a huge miss compared to consensus estimates.
I thought the same. But after a little while realised that all teh bad news was already priced in. Investors were expecting much worse. But the buy back and consequent reduction of share count causing the fy 15 eps to increase is something the investors will take it. Remember its trading on heavy volume-over a millin shares have traded in ah; plus this has a 10% short interest. a good recipe for this to climb more tomorrow.
