I think we have a long wait until earnings are released. Last year, JAS announced preliminary Q4 results on February 5, 2009, and final Q4 results on March 11. HKFI didn't announce Q4 earnings until April 9, with no pre-announcements of preliminary results.
Considering the issues coming out of bankruptcy, I would be surprised to see any numbers until early April again. Maybe late March, as an optimistic guess?
But 3rd quarter results from JAS were released on DEC 2nd 2009 and the same for HKF. Seeing how JAs as already come out with their 4th quarter HKF should be relasing their 4th quarter. Yet I have not even seen anything anouncing a date for 4th quarter release... I left IR a message yesterday and have not heard back yet..
JAS has not released earnings yet. They gave an estimated range of earnings for the quarter. JAS is expected to release actual Q4 earnings on March 10.
Think about it. The year end for both companies is January 31. It takes more than a week to close the books and get the CPAs to sign off on the numbers. JAS has a policy of releasing sales figures as soon as the Q ends, and this year (for the first time, as far as I can tell) they added an estimated range of EPS. I assume they did this because the EPS number was a blow-out and they wanted the news out.
