    I would think KORS climbs back over $80 with a beat and raise quarter…but, what do I know?

    Earnings tomorrow morning ....

    The stock sold off hard as the shrinking margins spooked investors. That is a red flag for growth stocks. KORS is spending a ton of money to fuel their global growth. The new website, new warehouses, and advertising is all costly.

    The growth story has not changed though. KORS is still taking share from competitors. The only thing that changed is that investors were not comfortable owning KORS at $100 with reduced margins. Even though management has been transparent about that issue they sold the stock down to $70.

    Now, investors are skeptical and prepared for the worst. How much will the margins shrink? How much is KORS management spending to fuel growth? Even though KORS beats EPS and revenue estimates they are not making as much profit as in the past because of their spending. How much profit ail they book this quarter in comparison to Q2 2014?

    There will be plenty of questions for management to answer tomorrow on the conference call. I am glad they have finally delivered on their website as they said they would. That adds some credibility to management.

    An EPS beat and raised guidance is a slam-dunk. But, the stock has sold off hard a few times with those two things going for it….

    Big holiday season looming for Michael Kors… They will raise guidance

  • qofaslave69 by qofaslave69 Nov 1, 2014 12:28 PM Flag

    The firm has taken over its own website from Neiman-Marcus. The website is greatly improved.
    I am looking forward to the conference call on how they plan to use social media to drive consumers to their website, and how much traffic the new website is bringing.

    We hear too much media noise about "slower mall traffic." But, consumers are still spending, and they are doing their shopping from mobile devices. Many are shopping via social media outlets. Some shoppers like receiving packages on their doorsteps.

    Michael Kors is one of the leaders in social media engagement and advertising. It will be interesting to hear what management has to say about the change in shopping patterns, and how they plan on capturing those shoppers using mobile devices.

    KORS Reports Tuesday

    Nobody knows how the stock will respond to a quality earnings report. The fear of another SPO is out of the way now, and that is a positive for this stock. I believe the firm is taking market share and the stock bottommed around $70! Plenty of upside for longs.

    As far as the stock market...we are in a raging bull market. I do not understand the post by anvboy about a falling market. We will rally into Christmas....

    This stock is a winner and nobody knows about it. AWR has been up five comsecutive weeks. It was downgraded today, and went down nine cents. AWR reports earnings next week.
    They increaseed the dividend last week. There is nothing not to like about this stock...

  • qofaslave69 by qofaslave69 Oct 30, 2014 5:11 PM Flag

    My best guess sis they will announce $.95 and raise guidance…
    I have no ideas how the stock will respond. It has sold off on good reports in the past.

    Same old Wall Street slime balls playing their silly games. Doesn't Janney downgrade KOS periodically no matter the price of the stock?

    AWR is a buy & hold stock for any long term investor...decent dividend too...

    Just horrific numbers, and the conference call was shaky. The new CEO lacks confidence. I wonder why?

    Of course it will stick. KORS at $76 today and will be over $80 soon...

  • qofaslave69 by qofaslave69 Oct 28, 2014 8:46 AM Flag

    After the Christmas holidays...Sad!
    They reported a negative 19% same store sales in North America!
    I wonder where those consumers are shopping?

    Every stock has a personality. This one has changed recently.

    To echo gumby4162, nothing has changed here. Michael Kors is still doing brisk business. They are killing it with social media. Consumers are buying straight from the mobile sites of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

    The China Holdings Group sold out 11 millions shares and that is a big positive for this stock.

    The market runs it down, and then run it back up. Those are the game that are played on Wall Street. Nothing has changed…. Will earnings be rewarded finally? I think so….

  • qofaslave69 by qofaslave69 Oct 4, 2014 5:42 PM Flag

    The huge selloff has finally ceased. KORS has revrsed trend and should continue to trend higher into earnings.
    Another blowout quarter, and raised guidance, will be announced in November. I started a small position this past week.

    Good luck to all longs. They have certainly been taken for a ride here...
