    Growth stocks still getting sold. TSLA has gone from $265 to $198. Just today it traded from $208 to $198. KORS was at least up two bits…I am looking out for at least two more stellar earnings reports in May and August.

    Five consecutive down weeks after blowout earnings. This selling is technical and not related to KORS fundamentals and growth... Way oversold here...

    KORS is the #7 rated stock by IBD this week. The stock is forming a base as it waits for another stellar EPS report. The stock has seen five consecutive down weeks, and has traded from $101.04 to $88.67! It has sold off in stronger volume, and is now trading below its 10 week line. The stock traded below its 10 week line (between every EPS report) in 2013, and it proved a buying opportunity every time. Will things be different this time?

    Short interest in KORS is down to 6.4 million as of March 31...

    The stock market is taking some risk off the table, and KORS being a growth stock is seeing some selling. But, any long term investors sees this as an opportunity to buy a growth stock with stellar earnings and great growth potential at a cheap price. The $87 price divided by 2015 earnings makes this stock about 17 times forward earnings. That is cheaper than McDonalds…

    The stock is cheap and getting cheaper...

    Kinda strange since they did an IPO offering at $23.75 per share (GLOP). That is a red flag for me. But, this is a stock to watch long term, and they pay a little dividend...

    Beating Estimates

    by qofaslave69 Apr 9, 2014 3:04 PM
    qofaslave69 qofaslave69 Apr 10, 2014 6:28 PM Flag

    loreenw,

    The estimates for this quarter is $.68, and anything over that is a beat. I am sure KORS will surpass $.68. You are correct that is was colder, and snowed more than normal, in the east this winter. However, when Hurricane Sandy destroyed much of the eastern seaboard in October of 2012 KORS had record sales for that quarter. Many women will find a way to shop, and spend money. I would guess the $.71 they earned in Q2 is the bare minimum for this quarter. They have opened up so many new stores in Europe and North America that I do not see them doing less than that. The same store sales should come down to around 20%.

    The bigger mover for the stock this quarter is they will give full year fiscal 2015 guidance, and current estimate ($3.84) is way to low. The management team will raise fiscal 2015 guidance to $4 minimum, and that is a$.16 increase on current expectations. That is what will drive the stock higher. The yearly estimates are much more important than quarter to quarter estimates.

    Coach raising prices of handbags is laughable. You can raise prices when you have brand power like Nike. Coach is a dying brand and they are losing market share even after discounting items. What makes anyone think they will sell more bags at a higher price? This strategy wreaks of desperation to me...

    The stock is giving investors a chance to add. I would rather buy under $90 than over $100. Longer term, this stock is going higher. KORS always has turbulence. The stock went from $74 to $100 in a nanosecond and this correction allows investors to buy more. I am getting really tempted under $90...

    I like the way you think.
    Raised guidance to $4 or more is a given. I am adding shares under $90. This price will not last forever...

    KORS is trending more than 10% higher than Q2 where they delivered $.71 for that quarter. I would be conservative in predicting $.71, and realistically guesstimate around $.75-$.80. I would guess they are closer to $900 million in revenue than $800 million.

    This company has the best management in retail. They are an earnings machine. Do you have any doubt they will announce a beat and raise quarter next month?

    Does this seem bearish? You have comprehension issues…

    KORS Trending 10% Higher Than Q2
    KORS earned $.71 in Q2 2014, and some were disappointed they did not earn more. KORS is trending 10%-15% higher on Google Trends this quarter than they did in Q2 2014. Of course, KORS has opened many more stores since last summer, and I would expect them to deliver $.71 at a minimum. There is no telling all the variables that go into closing fiscal 2014, and the cost associated with opening so many new stores (especially in Europe).

    The driver of the stock going forward is EARNINGS and raised estimates of those earnings. Erinn Murphy of Piper Jaffray believes KORS will earn $6 in 2016. What will KORS earn in 2015? I believe $5 is plausible? The year has already started, and KORS has plenty of room for growth,

    Michael Kors has managed to provide better-than-expected results for all nine quarters it has reported since its IPO. It has beaten revenues estimates by an average 9% each time, while its earnings have topped market expectations by about 48% on average. This has resulted in an average increase of nearly 10% in its stock price on each day the company has announced its earnings results.

    For the recently-concluded fourth quarter (4QFY14; ended March 29, 2014), analysts have forecasted earnings of $0.68 per share on revenues of $816.9 million. Considering the company’s performance so far, it is only reasonable to expect that actual numbers will be better, leading to another surge in the company’s share price.

    Louis Vuitton Reports

    Any entry price under $90 will see 30% appreciation by the summer. KORS will not miss earnings, and they have been a model of consistency since their IPO in 2011. This will be a beat and raise quarter. I am not looking for catalysts in KORS. Their quarterly reports are good enough for me.

    I try to stay away from news driven stocks. TSLA is a stock I did not buy because the CEO is always in the news making promises, and the stock will spike. Then a car catches on fire and the stock dips.

    I prefer stock who quietly go about their business by executing and taking market share.

    Louis Vuitton reported earnings today, and showed strength in leather goods, and that is a good omen for KORS. The leather goods were surprisingly strong +9%, beating forecasts. I would suspect this will boost the luxury retailers? But, who knows?
