Earnings Preview: Macy’s profit might take a hit in Q3

Department store giant Macy’s Inc (M) might post a slip in earnings for the third quarter as it posts earnings on Wednesday, Nov 14, before the opening bell.

The Street expects earnings to fall 43.5% to $0.13 per share for the quarter on revenue of $5.44 billion. Investors might react positively to the stock if it beats estimates, but shares might get battered if Macy’s fails to meet analysts’ view.

Business conditions would be a focus on the earnings call this time around, however, there are lower chances of a positive EPS surprise.

Macy's second quarter 2018 earnings

Last quarter, Macy’s stock got battered even after earnings of $0.53 per share beat estimates. The company earned $166 million on a top-line of $5.57 billion in Q2.

Back in August, Macy’s also revised its fiscal 2018 guidance for full-year with adjusted diluted EPS of $3.95-4.15 on a total sales growth from flat to a 0.7% higher. Comparable sales growth on an owned plus licensed basis is touted to lie between 2.1% and 2.5%.
