EARNINGS CALENDAR HIGHLIGHTS
Earnings Spotlight: Lowe's (LOW) - Investors are a little more enthusiastic about the company's third-quarter report, due out the morning of Nov. 21, thanks to Home Depot (HD), which announced its own quarterly beat on Nov. 14. The question is whether a rising tide will lift the fortunes of both home improvement retailers, or whether Home Depot ate some of Lowe's lunch. KeyBanc's Bradley Thomas appears to believe it's the former. While the consensus analyst estimate is for $1.02 per share in profits (+15.9%) on $16.6 billion in revenues (+5.2%), Thomas expects earnings of $1.03 per share on revenues of $16.68 billion, and said in a recent note that Lowe's may be the better value at present.
Earnings Spotlight: Salesforce.com (CRM) Cloud services provider Salesforce.com has been flying high all year, up 56% so far in 2017, but that hasn't stopped analysts from piling into the "buy" camp. In the past two months, UBS and Moffett Nathanson have initiated CRM at Buy, and on Halloween, Guggenheim called Salesforce.com the "most compelling" stock in cloud computing as part of its own Buy call. Salesforce already has reported three earnings beats this calendar year, and will go for a fourth after the closing bell Nov. 21, when it reports results for its fiscal third quarter ended Oct. 31. Analysts expect a 23.5% jump in revenues to $2.7 billion, powering a 54% earnings boost to 37 cents per share.
Noteworthy Earnings Reports: Burlington Stores (BURL), Campbell Soup (CPB), Cracker Barrel (CBRL), Dollar Tree (DLTR), DSW (DSW), GameStop (GME), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), HP Inc. (HPQ), Hormel (HRL), Medtronic (MDT), Movado Group (MOV), Signet Jewelers (SIG)
Earnings Spotlight: Deere (DE) - Ag equipment maker Deere has powered ahead 30% year-to-date, including coming back from a quick crash in August after the company posted disappointing revenues for the second consecutive quarter. Still, investors have been optimistic about Deere after it scored its first uptick in revenue for 13 quarters earlier this year. And the acquisition of leading road-construction equipment maker Wirtgen, announced in June, should give Deere a shot in the arm. Up next for Deere is its report for its fourth quarter ended Oct. 31, due out before the Nov. 22 opening bell. Analysts are looking for a 61.1% increase in profits to $1.45 per share, fueled by 23.5% growth on the top line to $7 billion.
