Earnings preview: Will Best Buy have a new roadmap in Q2?

Best Buy Co. Inc. (NYSE:BBY) is slated to report second quarter 2020 earnings results on Thursday, August 29, before the market opens. Analysts estimate the company will report earnings of $0.99 per share on revenue of $9.56 billion.

This will be the first quarterly earnings release under the leadership of the new CEO, Corie Barry, who took over the role in June. It will be worth noting whether the company will roll out any strategic changes or new plans to drive growth going forward.

Best Buy reports first quarter 2020 earnings results

Best Buy faces tough competition from e-commerce players like Amazon (NYSE: AMZN) and the company has been seeing a declining trend in comparable sales. This trend can be expected to continue in the second quarter. The company is also likely to see impacts from the US-China trade war and the resultant tariffs.

However, the company’s ongoing initiatives to drive growth along with its cost-saving measures are likely to benefit the top and bottom line results. On the flip side, costs related to these investments could take a toll on margins.
