The fiscal second-quarter forecast for this retail beast calls for EPS to have slipped from $1.21 in the year-ago period to $1.15, while marginal growth in revenue to $120.25 billion for the three months that ended in July are expected as well, according to 32 Estimize respondents, but Wall Street sees sales as flat. Both Estimize and Wall Street overestimated revenues in the previous two periods. Analysts thus far anticipate sales will be essentially flat year-over-year, both in the current quarter and the full year.
The upcoming results should be almost without a doubt quite positive, as a result of the economic upturn in the US retail and consumer market, but few hours and we will precisely get to know the details and the consequent market reaction.
