    First Quarter Earnings

    Highly Doubtful that they will make 1st Quarter earning target of .41, looking over their #'s compared to last year-- even with the stellar April #'s--they'll come in short.

    • Last year, Q1 was a "bump in the road" (the first earnings miss in 19 straight quarters) that contained some very specific merchandise pricing errors and abnormal expenses, all of which have been since corrected in the ensuing three quarterly periods and earnings reports. Margins in Q1.2005 (not Q1.2006) should prove to a better comparison for estimating Q1.2007 earnings. Having said that, Q1.2007 EPS should easily exceed the ANALysts' estimate of $.41.
