07:02 EDTBBYBest Buy sees no material changes in consumer spending in Q3
Sharon McCollam, Best Buy EVP, CAO and CFO, commented, "It is difficult to know, though, if the recent volatility in the financial markets will affect overall consumer spending. To date, however, we have not seen a measurable impact versus our original expectations. As such, our outlook assumes there will be no material changes in consumer spending in the third quarter. With that said, our year-over-year non-GAAP outlook for Q3 FY16 is as follows. In the Domestic business we are expecting (1) flat to low-single digit revenue growth; and (2) an approximately flat operating income rate change driven by a higher gross profit rate offset by increased SG&A due to inflation and growth-related investments. In the International business, due to the ongoing impacts of the Canadian brand consolidation and foreign currency, we are expecting (1) an International revenue decline of approximately 30% and (2) an International non-GAAP operating income rate in the range of negative 2.5% to negative 3.5%."

12:29 EDTBBYBest Buy technical comments ahead of results
The shares have been trading in a bearish price channel since a peak of price in March of this year. If the news continues to be bearish, the current trend will likely continue. Next support below the current price of $30.53 is at the $29.50 area, the low of the current price channel. If the news is a sharp negative surprise, next supports will be at $28.11, $27.17, and $26.60. If the news is a bullish surprise, the top of the price channel at $32.78 would be the first important upside objective. It would take a breakout above the channel top to turn the trend back toward bullish. Next resistance above the channel would be at $33.75.
