Tiffany & Co. said it will open a pop-up restaurant for two days in May at its Beverly Hills location. The New York retailer (NYSE: TIF) said in honor of Mother's Day, proceeds from the May 4-5 Tiffany Cafe event at 208 N. Rodeo Dr. will benefit the Baby2Baby charity, which provides diapers, clothing and basic necessities to children under 12. Tiffany operates a Blue Box Cafe on the fourth floor of its New York flagship store.
Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is due to report earnings April 25. Analysts expect about $2.3 billion in net income, or $4.72 per share. The hoped-for "whisper number" is $4.95 per share, almost $2.5 billion.Source: Shutterstock The key number will be the revenue number, expected to be $59.65 billion.I'm guessing it will come in light.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe reason is Whole Foods, whose strategy doesn't line up with Amazon's. What happens at Whole Foods matters because the argument for Amazon stock is based on cash flow and growth, not on profits. Amazon has been growing at about 30% per year, even with its huge scale. Any slowdown is going to hit the stock hard.And Whole Foods looks like a slowdown. Amazon's Whole Foods ProblemWhen Amazon bought Whole Foods in 2017 for $13.7 billion, it was an upscale retailer known to detractors as "Whole Paycheck."Corporate cultures clashed immediately, as Amazon sought to scale Whole Foods into a mainstream retailer, a high-volume outlet serving its Prime customers. * 10 High-Yielding Dividend Stocks That Won't Wilt The result is illustrated in the Atlanta market, where the company's original store in an upper-class suburb recently closed in favor of a multi-story outlet in a downtown skyscraper. The company also opened a suburban outlet under its low-cost "365" brand, which is now going away.Amazon immediately began advertising "lower prices" at the new store, especially for Prime Members. I'm a Prime member, so I checked it out.The prices are below those Whole Foods once charged, but they're nowhere near those of Kroger (NYSE:KR), privately owned Publix or Walmart (NYSE:WMT), which dominate the Atlanta marketplace. Small hamburger buns that sell for $1.50 a pack at Kroger go for $3 at the new Whole Foods. It's like breakfast at Tiffany (NYSE:TIF). Bring your own croissant and stand at the window.There are some cool amenities, like a "vegetable butcher," a bakery and a rooftop beer garden, but bargain hunters are going to be disappointed. This is still an upper-class store for upper-class foodies. The power of Whole Foods sales hit Amazon's balance sheet in 2018. It's likely growth in 2019 will be much slower.What Amazon wants is for its Prime Members to order their groceries from Whole Foods and have them delivered via Amazon. For that change in habit to happen, it needs a much bigger, broader store network than Whole Foods now offers. Bananas are not books. Amazon on All CylindersOver the longer run, Amazon is still great. Cloud revenues keep climbing and margins should be fine since over half of what's sold at the website is owned by others. Amazon is once-again retreating in China, but that was never a big money-maker.Amazon also has huge growth opportunities in front of it. Its credit card, currently managed by JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), should become just the opening wedge in an all-out assault on banking services from small business lending to mortgages.Its joint venture in healthcare with JPMorgan and Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) only has a name -- Haven -- but it should start with about 1.5 million accounts (the three firms' employees and families), roughly 5 million total insureds. It looks to be copying the analytics-based strategies of United Healthcare (NYSE:UNH), which just reported record profits on revenue of $60.3 billion with almost 50 million customers. The Bottom LineFor Amazon, it's only top-line growth in the near term that's threatened. The company chose to pay $13.7 billion for 2% of the U.S. grocery market when Kroger, which has 10% of that market, is valued at just $20.4 billion.Over the longer run, Amazon still has an enormous runway for growth, and the assets to take advantage. But investors and reporters are fickle. A revenue "miss" could look much larger than it really is. If it does, consider any dip another invitation to buy this stock for the long run.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

More than a quarter of the New York-based company’s 1,500 global diamond cutters and polishers are now based in Africa, Chief Executive Officer Alessandro Bogliolo said in an interview in Cape Town. Tiffany has factories in Botswana and Mauritius with staff subject to “intensive training” over two years, he said, making it the only western luxury brand that doesn’t outsource production of its African stones. Botswana is the world’s largest diamond producer after Russia, and is the only African country where Tiffany both buys and prepares its stones.

Signet Beats Q4 2019 Estimates, Stock RisesKey takeaways from Signet’s earnings results On April 3, Signet Jewelers (SIG) posted better-than-expected earnings results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 (which ended on February 2). Signet stock
It's arguably the most recognizable name in luxury goods. While jewelry retailers like Signet Jewelers (NYSE:SIG) have a bigger geographical footprint and Blue Nile has made online jewelry shopping a reality, Tiffany & Co. (NYSE:TIF) is still an iconic name that turns heads, making Tiffany stock attractive to many investors.Source: Shutterstock But the iconic name didn't do much to help stave off the huge pullback of Tiffany stock during the last quarter of last year. Although most stocks lost quite a bit of ground between late September and late December, TIF stock was hit especially hard, falling 45% from peak to trough thanks to a huge surge in May that was more than fully unwound. * 15 Stocks to Buy Leading the Financial Charge The past three months have noticeably cut into that pullback, though. Tiffany stock may soon rebound further.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Tiffany Stock Pushes Through the Rough PatchFor years, the chatter about Tiffany's inevitable end has been getting louder. The advent of the internet has empowered consumers to find similar jewelry at better prices. And a lethargic global economy with unfavorable exchange rates has prevented tourists from visiting many of the company's flagship stores.Besides, the global society is evolving beyond petty things like self-indulgent spending on luxury jewelry. Glamour jewelry has become a tad gauche.Except that none of those assumptions is actually true.With the exception of a slight headwind in 2015 and 2016 (caused by an exceedingly strong U.S. dollar), Tiffany's bottom line has actually proven rather resilient. That's impressive, particularly in the shadow of the retail apocalypse that has crimped other high-end brands like Tapestry (NYSE:TPR), which owns brands like Coach and Kate Spade. Tapestry, in fact, dialed back its full-year profit forecast in February, snapping the stock's recovery effort.That begs the question… why has Tiffany & Co. been able to do what it seemingly shouldn't have been able to do? Small Changes, Big Impact on Tiffany StockIn retrospect, one can look back and see it wasn't the diamond business itself that had fallen out of favor two years back. It was everything else. First and foremost, execution, operations and marketing got in the company's way.When Alessandro Bogliolo was named Tiffany's CEO in the middle of 2017, he took the keys of a solid vehicle that was being driven the wrong way. Almost immediately, he was able to tweak the design-to-production-to-floor process and create fresh jewelry looks that draw crowds.It wasn't just new designs that made a difference for TIF and Tiffany stock, however. The company's simple "Believe in Love" slogan sparked double-digit growth in engagement ring sales.Tiffany's sales and earnings turnaround coincided with Bogliolo's arrival.Bogliolo has done much behind the scenes, too, and continues to do so. Over the course of the past two years the company has hired more than a couple of thousand production workers, with the CEO explaining last month "We believe it's a competitive advantage to cut and polish our own stones."Most of Tiffany's rivals outsource their acquisition of stones and the manufacture of jewelry, not only ceding control and adding to costs, but often preventing shoppers from knowing exactly how and where gemstones were secured.Such details matter in an increasingly self-aware world in which consumers are thinking twice about the kinds of societal impact their purchases are making. Looking Ahead for Tiffany StockThere's one last potential pitfall for the rally of Tiffany stock that's currently underway. The pivotal 200-day moving average of TIF stock lies immediately ahead, at $109.87. It's the last of the key moving averages that could stand in the way of the rally.Still, Tiffany stock has already made the statement that it's got a fresh set of backers willing to stick with it. The rebound from its late-December low could have been nothing but a mere effort to fill in the gap the shares left behind in November.But,even after filling in the gap last week, TIF stock has continued to move higher. Indeed, the stock's continued to move higher on growing bullish volume that had previously been missing from the effort.If the 200-day moving average line (the white line on the chart) is hurdled, the next potential stop is the gap around $122 that was made with a decided plunge in early October.Tiffany stock isn't cheap in any plausible meaning of the word. But that doesn't actually matter at this point. The turnaround story, for the company and the stock, appears to be self-sustaining.Just keep an eye on all the chart milestones.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Signet (NYSE:SIG) stock reports its earnings on Wednesday before the opening bell. The Bermuda-based diamond jewelry retailer experienced a rough start to the year as the company guided lower and delayed this upcoming earnings report. This added to the woes the company has faced since SIG stock started moving downward in the middle part of the decade.Source: Elizabeth Murphy via FlickrFor Signet stock to become a buy again, the company will not only need an upside surprise, but will also need to show signs of a sustained rebound.For Q4, Wall Street forecasts earnings of $3.82 per share. If this holds, it will represent a decline of over 9.5% from year-ago levels. Predicted Q4 revenues of $2.14 billion also would mean a 6.5% decline from the same quarter last year.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThe company will also report full-year earnings for FY 2019. Analysts predict a profit of $3.57 per share, well below FY 2018 levels of $6.51 per share. They also forecast $6.1 billion in revenue for 2019. The company brought in $6.24 billion in FY 2018. Amid Issues, SIG Stock Offers Low Multiples, High DividendsAdmittedly, the fundamentals look appealing at first glance. The forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 8.9 could draw some investors by itself. Seeing SIG stock trade at 0.22 times sales and just 1.07 times its book value adds to the perception of its reasonable valuation. * 15 Stocks to Buy Leading the Financial Charge Moreover, the company pays a generous dividend. The annual payout of $1.48 per share amounts to a yield of around 5.3%. This dividend has also increased every year since the company first initiated payouts in 2011.However, beyond these attributes, more concerning trends have appeared. As mentioned earlier, analysts expect both revenue and earnings to come in lower. Unfortunately for SIG stock bulls, the revenue slide began in 2016 and earnings peaked in 2017 before moving the other direction. Analysts predict that these trends will continue through at least fiscal 2020. The Years of Struggle for Signet ContinueThis also adds to a SIG stock downtrend which began in late 2015. At that time, the share price briefly exceeded $152 per share. Now, in the $28 per share range, SIG trades at levels it first saw in 2003! This has occurred in an environment where archrival Tiffany (NYSE:TIF) continues to grow amid competition from the likes of Costco (NASDAQ:COST) or small jewelers who sell on sites such as Etsy (NASDAQ:ETSY).Moreover, the company has reported some disappointing news in recent months. On Jan. 17, SIG stock plunged by 24.7% as the company warned that same-store sales fell by 1.3% from levels of the previous year. Following that report, analysts predicted a drop between 1.6% and 2.5% for the fourth quarter.During that report, they also guided lower on profits. The new guidance of $3.77 to $3.92 per share came in much lower than previous estimates of $4.46 per share. For the fiscal year, earnings estimates fell from $4.25 per share to a range between $3.53 and $3.69 per share.Then in February, SIG announced they had pushed back their earnings date to April 3. They cited the need for more time to research a non-cash impairment charge related to both goodwill and intangible assets.SIG stock beat estimates in each of its four previous reports. Since the company already reduced expectations, I would assume higher revenues and earnings than analysts expect. Still, with investors used to the company beating estimates, inspiring a turnaround will take more. The Bottom Line on SIG StockGoing into earnings, SIG stock remains dead money until signs of a sustained turnaround emerge. The company's low P/E ratio and high dividend yield could draw investors. However, with Signet stock in a long-term downtrend that has erased more than 80% of its value, many could still remain wary until they see increases in Signet stock.At some point, the low P/E ratio and the increasingly generous payout will make SIG a buy. The five-year profit forecast predicts average growth of 7% per year over the next five years. Also, at least one analyst predicts an increase in profits for 2021. Perhaps investors should buy SIG stock at that time.Still, I do not see the stock recovering for now. Until the company shows signs of reversing its revenue and earnings declines, Signet stock should stay off investor buy lists, both before and after earnings.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.
