Five Below Inc. (NASDAQ:FIVE)

Here is an update of Five Below winning options call trade after reporting earnings. This options trade was recommended to “Cut-to-the-Chase” & “All-Inclusive” Trader Members of Stock Options Made Easy, on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 -- in the article ““Cut-to-the-Chase” Recommendations - Week Beginning Monday, November 27, 2017”-- producing excellent profits of 134% within 48 hours of executing the trade!

The Recommendation……

…….from ““Cut-to-the-Chase” Recommendations - Week Beginning Monday, November 27, 2017”.

The Details……..

Five Below Inc. (NASDAQ:FIVE), a specialty retailer offering a range of merchandise for teen and pre-teen customers, reports Q3 earnings on Thursday, and analysts expect EPS of 13 cents, a 30% jump, on 23% revenue growth to $245 million. The teen- and tween-focused retail chain is coming off a strong Q2, when fidget spinners fattened sales and margins.

Last quarter, the company outpaced the Consensus Estimate by 15.4%. Notably, it has surpassed earnings estimates in the trailing four quarters with an average beat of 8.7%.

The company has a remarkable history. It persisted with positive earnings surprise streak for the eighth straight quarter, when it reported second-quarter fiscal 2017 results.

The current Consensus Estimate for the quarter under review is 13 cents, compared with a year-ago earnings of 10 cents.

Store expansions and plans to remodel others also have helped attract customers.

Wall Street will likely be looking for the company to keep up those trends as it heads further into the holiday quarter, which it depends on for much of its sales.

The Trade……..

** OPTION TRADE: Buy the FIVE DEC 15 2017 65.000 CALL at approximately $0.95.
