Increase in wholesale orders, domestic manufacturing production and strong operating cash flow have been boosting investors’ optimism.

Price and Consensus

Price Consensus Chart for BSET
Price Consensus Chart for BSET

This furniture seller is expected to post quarterly earnings of $0.24 per share in its upcoming report, which represents a year-over-year change of +100%. Revenues are expected to be $114.21 million, up 1.9% from the year-ago quarter.

Earnings and revenue growth expectations certainly give a good sense of the potential strength in a stock, but empirical research shows that trends in earnings estimate revisions are strongly correlated with near-term stock price movements.

For Bassett, the consensus EPS estimate for the quarter has been revised 4.6% lower over the last 30 days to the current level. And a negative trend in earnings estimate revisions doesn't usually translate into price appreciation. So, make sure to keep an eye on BSET going forward to see if this recent jump can turn into more strength down the road.

The stock currently carries a Zacks Rank 3 (Hold). You can see the complete list of today's Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) stocks here >>>>
