3 Stocks That Could Make Huge Moves This Week
DeVryDeVry is an online, for-profit college. The company is expected to report earnings on Tuesday evening
Currently, 18% of DeVry’s shares are sold short.
Though it has escaped the fate of some of its now-bankrupt peers, DeVry is suffering from the same negative industry trends. Increased competition and government scrutiny is crimping profitability.
Here’s What You Should WatchOver the Short Term• DeVry is expected to report
earnings of $0.61 per share for the previous quarter.
• Analysts expect the company to have collected $479 million in sales for the previous quarter.
• For the next fiscal year, analysts are expecting the company to earn $2.55 per share on sales of $1.89 billion.
Over the Long Term• Thus far, DeVry has been able
to grow its new-student enrollments. But that is thanks almost entirely to DeVry Brazil. Look to see how new-student enrollment fares at DeVry’s flagship undergraduate school, which showed a 17% contraction last quarter.
The Fresh MarketThe Fresh Market is a natural/organic grocer that focuses on small-store footprints in the eastern United States.
Currently, 25% of The Fresh Market’s shares are sold short.
As with many smaller natural/organic grocers, The Fresh Market hasn’t been able to meet Mr. Market’s expectations. With the company exiting the west coast, and without a full-time CEO, investors are wary about this stock. Photo: The Fresh Market
Here’s What You Should WatchOver the Short Term• The Fresh Market is
expected to announce $459 million in revenue for the previous quarter.
• The company is expected to have earned $0.40 per share last quarter.
• For the full fiscal year, expectations are set for $1.9 billion in revenue and earnings of $1.85 per share.
Over the Long Term• Listen in to see if the
management team is any closer to naming a successor as CEO.
• Same-store sales will show if the company’s concept is gaining favor with customers. Last quarter, the key metric was down by 0.1%. Management sees growth of 1% to 3% moving forward.
SearsSears is one of the oldest names in American retail. The company also owns Kmart. Sears is expected to report earnings on Thursday morning.
Currently, 20% of Sears’ shares are sold short.
The company has been unable to recover since the Great Recession, and a recent update to guidance shows no path to sustainable profitability in sight.
Here’s What You Should WatchOver the Short Term• Analysts are expecting
Sears to report revenue of $5.7 billion for the previous quarter.
• They are also expecting the company to have lost $2.50 per share for the previous quarter.
• For all of 2015, expectations are set for $24.4 billion in sales with a loss of $10.23 per share.
Over the Long Term• The company might be able to
show short-term profitability as a result of moves with their real-estate.
• However, unless same-store sales start to grow (they’re expected to shrink by 10% when earnings are announced), the company will continue to struggle.
