The Dow finished an ugly week on a high note, as Wall Street recouped some of the historic losses it suffered in the last five days.

The blue-chip index posted its best percentage gain since October 2008, adding huge last-minute gains after a news conference from President Donald Trump, who declared the coronavirus outbreak a national emergency and announced that 50,000 new coronavirus tests will reportedly be available next week.

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq both joined the Dow with gains of 9% or more, but all three benchmarks still logged extensive weekly losses.  

When To Exit A Trade Based On Earnings?.....

It is also worth considering, when options trading earnings reports – “Do we exit on already existing profits or leave the companies to report their earnings and hope for bigger profit?” 

As most traders realize, there is a 50/50 chance that the company stock price could go either way after reporting earnings – even if the report is good, the stock price could reverse – and if you hold a call option, means depletion of an already good profit if it exists. A similar situation can be found if you hold a put option, and a report is not that sound (and you expect a profit from this) but the stock price can, at times move upwards due to traders bias or other external conditions......READ MORE.....

Earnings Predictions Results for.....

Dicks Sporting Goods Inc. (NYSE:DKS)

DICK'S Sporting Goods shares have slumped 26.1% in the past three months compared with the industry’s 20.6% decline, despite delivering robust fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 results.

Dick's came out with quarterly earnings of $1.32 per share, beating the Consensus Estimate of $1.22 per share. This compares to earnings of $1.07 per share a year ago.

This quarterly report represents an earnings surprise of 8.20%.

Over the last four quarters, the company has surpassed consensus EPS estimates four times.

Dick's posted revenues of $2.61 billion for the quarter ended January 2020, surpassing the Consensus Estimate by 2.33%. This compares to year-ago revenues of $2.49 billion. The company has topped consensus revenue estimates four times over the last four quarters.

The company delivered strong sales results despite the shorter holiday season this year as well as challenging weather that hurt its cold weather categories. Also, its results gained from its focus on improving service, experience and marketing across all channels.

The company’s top line reflected the impacts of a decline in hunting category sales due to the removal of the category from 125 stores in the fiscal fourth quarter.



Earnings Predictions Results for.....

Slack Technologies Inc (NYSE: WORK)

Slack Technologies Inc. analysts said the company’s billings forecast for the full year came in lower-than-expected and disappointed investors looking for a bump from the virus-driven surge in people working from home.

Slack Technologies Inc. shares plummeted 22% in after-hours trading Thursday after the digital-collaboration platform reported a widening loss during its fourth-quarter results.

Slack reported a loss of $89.1 million in the quarter, or 16 cents a share, compared with a loss of $34.6 million, or 29 cents a share, in the year-ago fourth quarter.

Revenue grew 49% to $181.9 million from $122 million a year ago.

Analysts had expected a loss of 20 cents a share on sales of $174.2 million.

Slack is among the latest examples of companies that have looked to temper expectations amid the global spread of coronavirus. It also is facing stronger competition from Microsoft Corp.’s rival Teams product.

“No investor doubts Slack’s cult-like product portfolio and impressive growth trajectory,” Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives said in a note. “The issue comes down to its long-term growth profile” with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella “laser-focused on its Teams and the Office 365 opportunity.”


Earnings Predictions Results for.....

Ulta Beauty Inc (NASDAQ: ULTA)

Ulta Beauty, Inc. posted fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 results, wherein both top and bottom lines improved year over year and beat the Consensus Estimate.

Ulta Beauty came out with quarterly earnings of $3.83 per share, beating the Consensus Estimate of $3.72 per share. This compares to earnings of $3.61 per share a year ago. These figures are adjusted for non-recurring items.

This quarterly report represents an earnings surprise of 2.96%.

Over the last four quarters, the company has surpassed consensus EPS estimates three times.

Ulta posted revenues of $2.31 billion for the quarter ended January 2020, surpassing the Consensus Estimate by 0.58%. This compares to year-ago revenues of $2.12 billion. The company has topped consensus revenue estimates just once over the last four quarters.

Influencing factors.....

  • Results met the high end of management’s expectations and were backed by improved omnichannel capacity along with the company’s unique merchandise and efficient marketing. This helped the beauty retailer expand market share in all major beauty categories, with skincare recording the highest growth.
  • However, the U.S. makeup category remained troubled across the prestige as well as mass beauty channels. In fact, management expects this category to remain challenged in 2020. Also, the company expects operating margin to decline in fiscal 2020. Management expects the first half of 2020 to be more challenged than the second half. It also provided softer-than-expected earnings guidance for the fiscal.

Ulta shares have lost about 12.6% since the beginning of the year.

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!
