why is the inventory of existing homes for sale so low?
Won't it increase sales over 5% even without the benefits of Acme's marketing reach? Seems to be a natural fit, with some branding potential.
I don't know how much of Blackrock holdings are in index funds, but I doubt they represent 8.5% of the market. Also, for an index fund, share price change does not affect number of shares owned, but inflows and outflows to fund do.
SunTrust upgraded the restaurant stock to a Buy rating from Neutral on a valuation call.
BlackRock also filed notice with the SEC that it holds 1.985M shares or about 8.5% of the company. Last year at this time Blackrock held a position of around 7.9%.
Sales of fashionable winter/snow boots are up 21% year-over-year this season, according to NPD Group data.The dramatic sales growth for women's boots stands in sharp contrast to the weak sales seen across most winter apparel categories due to the warm weather pattern in the U.S.Fashion brands that may have a piece of the fashion boot action include Hunter, Frye (OTC:GLBRF), Michael Kors (NYSE:KORS), and Timberland (NYSE:VFC).
I have not looked into their results, but I notice their stock is doing very badly. I doubted their offer was still on the table, but that makes it even less likely. If offer were withdrawn, doesn't that warrant a mention?
Micro, I understand recall does not have immediate significant financial impact, but there is reputation to consider, and I think earnings release, or some other forum, should address the recall.
They are doing it to make earnings look better and to help their options. However, it does save shareholdes a tax bite.
Is smart watch market more competitive than fashion watch market? YTD has not been good for Fossil or industry - last year was very good.
Who said I understand the big drop? I would guess, though, people looked at chicken prices and predicted the under performance in earnings. Then, maybe we had "buy on the news", the analogous response to "sell on the news". So maybe that is the answer to the question I posed.
I am NOT commenting on value of SAFM. However, I do not see why earnings release and call should trigger a significant share price boost. One source cited as rationale the likely relaxation of bans on US chicken exports. I think we could all have anticipated that. Perhaps, the explanation was the comment that countries are more likely to implement a ban by US REGION if there is a new outbreak of avian flu. I believe this would have benefited SAFM given where there production is, and would benefit everyone by reducing chickens available domestically.
I wouldn't have thought so, since going to CBRL is such a different experience. From CNBC today:
After doubling down on breakfast, McDonald's is eating competitors' lunch.
Since the fast food giant announced plans to extend breakfast hours, its stock price has far outpaced several rivals that also depend on the morning meal for business.
McDonald's shares have risen nearly 25 percent since the Sept. 1 announcement, while shares of other breakfast servers like Denny's, Bob Evans, Cracker Barrel, Dunkin' Brands and IHOP owner DineEquity are off by double digits.
I looked in to see if someone wrote up a plausible reason for stock slide, or even listened to the CC. Volume over 3/4 million shares - not enough?
How did you conclude it is debt laden? Debt is less than tangible equity, and 9 month interest is 38% of 9 month net income before taxes, let alone EBITDA.
I missed the guidance in the release. Total sales (well maybe just gallons of fuel) were known before earnings release. Increase in operating costs may be larger than anticipated.
Judging from after hours action, people weren't impressed. I was. Earnings were fantastic, and if they were accomplished on lighter revenue than expected, so what. The income from Rin's was actually down a bit compared to last quarter, and to Oct 2014 quarter. Be interesting to see what is bothering analysts tomorrow.
I started looking into JMBA and here is why I stopped:
a) they don't break out fees/costs from initial franchising/refranchising (as contrasted to royalties)
b) I estimated roughly $0.20 of eps this year will be from Jambacard breakage fees (what they call inactive cards which were bought but are not expected to ever be used)
c) eps reflects very low tax rates because of loss carryforwards.
