Earnings Predictions Results for.....

Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (NASDAQ:WBA)

Dow Jones stock Walgreens Boots Alliance reported fiscal first-quarter earnings that fell more than expected, hit by lower payments from insurers on drugs sold at its U.S. pharmacies.

The Deerfield, Illinois-based company Walgreen’s shares sank 5.8% to close at $55.83 Wednesday, but found support at their 200-day average.

Walgreens earnings fell to $1.37 a share missing the Wall Street expected Walgreens earnings per share to slip 4% to $1.40.

Also, revenue came in short climbing 1.6% to $34.34 billion, missing the estimate of 2% at $34.63 billion.

Walgreens has also been struggling with disappointing performance in its Boots UK unit and intense competition from the arrival of Amazon.com Inc in the pharmacy market in the past year.

However, Chief Executive Officer Stefano Pessina was optimistic saying "the changes in our markets are obscuring some of the positive impact we are having," said. "This will not be the case forever."

Earnings Predictions Results for.....

Constellation Brands, Inc. Class A (NYSE: STZ)

The wine and beer importer Constellation Brands saw its shares rise after posting better-than-expected fiscal third-quarter earnings, despite Canopy Growth write-down.

The company, which brands include Corona, Robert Mondavi and Svedka, said net income for the quarter to Nov. 30 rose to $360.4 million, or $1.85 a share, from $303.1 million, or $1.56 a share, in the year-ago period. On a comparable basis, earnings per share came to $2.14, including equity losses of 25 cents a share from its stake in Canopy Growth Corp., compared with the consensus of $1.82. Sales rose to $2.00 billion from $1.97 billion, above the consensus of $1.95 billion.

The company raised its fiscal 2020 comparable EPS guidance range to $9.45 to $9.55 from $9.00 to $9.20.

Constellation shares rose as much as 4.3% to $191.50 in New York Wednesday, the biggest intraday gain since June. The stock gained 18% last year.


Earnings Predictions Results for.....

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (NASDAQ:BBBY)

The specialty retailer of domestic merchandise and home furnishings, Bed Bath & Beyond, saw its shares plummet to their lowest intraday level since Nov. 25 after the home-goods retailer pulled its year forecast after third-quarter results missed estimates. Disappointing holiday sales reports from Kohl’s Corp. and J.C. Penney further pressured the stock.

On Wednesday, January 8, third quarter earnings and revenue miss caused the share price of Bed Bath & Beyond to plunge 8 percent; and on Thursday, stock was down 11 percent in premarket trading.

Net earnings dropped to a net loss of $38.6 million compared to $24.4 million from one year ago.

Analysts expected earnings of 2 cents whereas the retailer delivered an adjusted loss per share of 38 cents.

Comparable sales handily missed estimates in the quarter and EBIT margin turned negative “for the first time in recent history,” noted Guggenheim’s Steven Forbes. Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba called the report “the worst we can remember since the Great Recession.”

Bed Bath & Beyond still faces significant headwinds around its inability to sustain sales growth, its high reliance on coupons/promotions and underinvestment’s in the business, all at a time when competition is intensifying and the home furnishings category is migrating online at a fast pace.

Earnings Predictions Results for.....


Shares of Electrical equipment maker AZZ Inc were up nearly 4% in premarket trading Thursday, after the company reported fiscal third-quarter earnings that rose above expectations. Net income for the quarter to Nov. 30 increased to $22.0 million, or 84 cents a share, from $15.4 million, or 59 cents a share, in the same period a year ago.

The consensus for earnings per share was 80 cents. Sales rose 21.6% to $291.1 million, above the consensus of $271.7 million, as metal coatings revenue grew 20.2% to $129.2 million and energy revenue increased 22.7% to $161.9 million.

Operating margins in the metal coatings business improved to 21.1% from 17.0%, driven by lower zinc costs flowing through the kettles, while the energy business got a boost from a very active fall turnaround season.

The stock has run up 18.9% over the past three months through Wednesday.

An Important Note: That any suggestions for options trade considerations require investors/traders to use their own discretion as to when to enter or exit! As well, it is advisable to do further research and due diligence before executing your trade.

It is sometimes best to exit a trade, if there is already sufficient profit accrued, before an earnings report is presented. GREED can be the undoing of a nice profit!
