    There might just be a monster option play developing with COST. If we come back to the $360's support before earnings, this could be an incredible explosion to/through $400 by next CC. IMO, COST is going to improve each month through December. The overall excitement will calm down after January.

    Costco Wholesale Corp. said adjusted comparable net sales for the five weeks that ended Monday climbed almost 17% from the same period a year ago.
    The company logged $16.84 billion in net sales for the handful of weeks that ended Oct. 5 , it said.
    Comparable total company sales rose 15.5% for that five-week period, while comparable e-commerce sales rose 90.3%, Costco said. Comparable U.S. sales rose 14.5%, comparable Canada sales increased 17.5% and comparable other international sales increased 18.5%.
    Costco said comparable sales that don't include the effects of change in gas prices and foreign exchange were up 16.9% for the whole company and up 90.1% for e-commerce. Those sales rose 16.7% for the U.S., 18% for Canada and 17.5% for elsewhere internationally, Costco reported.
    The company said the shift in the Labor Day holiday in the U.S. and shift in the Moon Festival in Asia both helped results by slightly less than 100 basis points combined.

    I wonder if I am the only one who does not care for a special dividend. I rather the company uses the dividend to repurchase the stock. For tax purposes, a dividend is taxed as ordinary income. As long as I held on to the stock over a year, all the gains are taxed at long term gain.
    Unless the stock is being held in an IRA or 401K, there is tax consequence receiving dividend. If one is a long, would you rather get some of your money back and pay tax now or rather have the stock appreciates and take the gain when you sell later. Opinions are welcome!

    Who is paying 3200 a share for Amazoo with a p/e of 122 And no dividends. I wish Costco had a p/e like that. Amazoo is a RETAILER that owns very little property but loves to spend money. Good Luck to the AMAZOO Fans. I use them occasionally but would never waste my money with stock.

    What is the percentage of Costco members that has Executive membership?
    Since we know Costco makes money on collecting membership fees and it has two type of memberships. The regular Gold Star cost $60.00, the Executive cost $120.00. The Executive membership fee is twice the Gold membership fee. There are reports of how many Costco memberships and the fee is always listed as $60.00. However, this could be underestimating the fees collected. I searched and could not find the percentages of Executive membership against the Gold Star membership. I have the Executive membership.
    Just for curiosity's sake, I would like to do a survey on this board. If you are a Costco member, which type of membership do you have?

    Costco is acting just like Nike did.
    Came out with a great quarter but lost right after earnings. Nike came back to gain 33%. I see the same with Costco. Glad I grabbed 200 shares at $339.

    Wall Street analysts questioning Costco for their $2 per hour premium to Costco workers while posting 11% ish sales gains is ALL you need to know about Wall Street and how the US economy works for owners rather than workers. Eff that analyst, I'll shop Costco more BECAUSE they take care of their employees.
