Tiffany & Co third-quarter sales inch up, but fails to meet Market estimates

Tiffany third quarter 2018 Earnings Infographic

Over the years, Tiffany stock has handsomely paid its investors. The stock soared 24% immediately following the market-beating first-quarter results in May. However, since then, a bear market in the luxury industry pulled down the stock. Yet, the stock managed to outperform the S&P 500 index with a 17% growth this year. SPX index recorded only an 8% gain during the same period.

Last year, Tiffany had announced a slew of management changes including the appointment of Alessandro Bogliolo as its CEO; posting of Reed Krakoff to the newly-created role of Chief Artistic Officer; naming of Roger Farah as the Chairman of the board; as well as the appointment of three new independent directors.
