I do not know what channel checks you are referencing. I have visited three stores (SanFrancisco, Stanford, and Valley Fair) and business seems to be good but not like Christmas season. I have no doubt that KORS will crush EPS estimates this quarter.
I notice at every store men are there, and buying things for their lady friends (I do the same thing). Most ladies are capable of buying their luxury accessories but, a happy wife is a happy life, and they love receiving gifts. It got me to thinking if there were more items for men to buy they could get their lady friends a nice gift, and buy something for themselves. There is huge growth potential in their men's apparrel.
do you know that KORS is a cyclical stock? it is going to have a better revenue on certain quarters especially during christmas season. analsyst will estimate EPS accordingly and KORS just have to beat that estimate.
i read the goldman report -- i guess your informal store walk inns are not scientific
compared to goldman's research dept -
of couse xmas represents a different season compared to jan/feb
i dont understand your thinking - they bound to be slower then xmas
but higher then last jan/feb
