Horrendous holiday sales + projected loss in the first quarter of 0.15-0.20 per share + second quarter is traditionally weak (i would say break even or loss again). Next year earnings of 0.30-0.40 tops. Do the math yourselves. If I was long I would sell now in AH at a few percent loss, or even some profit (depends when you did buy) and walk away. Bad days for ARO ahead. Just my two cents.
Do they normally not guide for the full year? I thought it was weird that they didn't unless they normally do not. Otherwise, I look at it as though they are expecting a horrible year. I would not be in this one. Much better retail stocks out there.
Your two cents make perfect sense. This company keeps missing and guiding down. They forward expectations are also dark. This company (based on the new downward revisions) is trading at about 35 times earnings. There are a lot better clothing retail stocks to buy at much better price-to-earnings multiples.
