13:21 EDTTSCOEarnings Preview: Lowe's trading higher ahead of Q2 earnings report
Lowe's Companies (LOW), a home improvement retailer, is scheduled to report on its second quarter before the market open on Wednesday, August 20, with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.02 on revenue of $16.55B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 96c-$1.06 on revenue of $16.16B-$16.79B. LAST QUARTER: Lowe's reported first quarter EPS of 61c, beating analyst's estimates of 60c, on revenue of $13.4B against estimates for $13.86B. The company also reported Q1 same-store sales rose 0.9%. Lowe's raised its fiscal year 2014 EPS guidance to approximately $2.63 from $2.60 against estimates at that time for $2.62 and said it expects revenue up 5% in this fiscal year compared to last. Lowe's said it expected to open 10 home improvement and 5 hardware stores in 2014 and expects its FY14 SSS to increase approximately 4%. The company expects to repurchase $3.4B of stock this fiscal year. NEWS: During the quarter, Lowe's named Paul Ramsay as Chief Information Officer. The company also raised its quarterly dividend 27.8% to 23c per share. STREET RESEARCH: Deutsche Bank lowered its estimates for both Lowe's and Home Depot (HD) after Tractor Supply (TSCO) and Lumber Liquidators (LL) pre-announced Q2 comp misses. The firm, which noted that the negative earnings revision is "relatively minor," said that while the business models are different, Tractor Supply and Lumber Liquidators have historically correlated positively with Home Depot and Lowe's on comps. Morgan Stanley initiated Lowe's with an Equal Weight rating and $50 target in June. Canaccord downgraded Lowe's to Sell from Hold due to slowing housing momentum, management changes, and difficult competition. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, Lowe's shares are up almost 14%. In morning trading ahead of tomorrow's report, Lowe's is up nearly 3% to $51.89.
