IN THE SPOTLIGHT: GAMESTOP, LULULEMON ATHLETICA

GAMESTOP: The world’s largest multichannel video game retailer is expected to report its fiscal second-quarter loss of -$0.67 per share, an improvement from a loss of -$1.40 per share seen in the same period a year ago.

The Grapevine, Texas-based company would post year-over-year revenue growth of about 20% year-on-year to around $1.1 billion. EPS estimates have been exceeded twice in the last four quarters.

LULULEMON ATHLETICA: The Vancouver-based retailer healthy lifestyle-inspired athletic retailer is expected to report its fiscal second-quarter earnings of $1.18 per share, which represents year-over-year growth of about 60% from $0.74 per share seen in the same period a year ago. The apparel retailer would post year-over-year sales growth of about 50% to $1.34 billion.

Lululemon Athletica (LULU) is a LT topline grower, supported by compelling secular tailwinds (e.g., performance/athleisure focus), a market share gain opportunity, & credible future revenue driver (e.g., international expansion, digital growth, & product innovation/expansion into new categories). The company’s recent MIRROR acquisition offers both revenue & profitability upside, as reflected in our bull case,” noted Kimberly Greenberger, equity analyst at Morgan Stanley.

LULU dominates the NA athletic yoga apparel category due to its unique brand positioning & fashionable products. Covid accelerated consumers health & wellness focus & fashion casualization, both of which should benefit LULU.”

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: ORACLE

The world’s largest database management company is expected to report its fiscal first-quarter earnings of $0.97 per share, which represents year-over-year growth of over 4% from $0.93 per share seen in the same period a year ago. The Austin, Texas-based computer technology corporation would post revenue of $9.8 billion.

Oracle‘s current low valuation at ~16.7x CY22e EPS reflects its slower growth rate compared to peers. Despite potential opportunities within existing database customers and cloud-based ERP applications, offsets from waning businesses mean 2021 likely lacks the catalysts for the positive inflection in revenue growth investors would need to see to drive multiples higher,” noted Keith Weiss, equity analyst at Morgan Stanley.

“With management guiding to mid-single-digit CC revenue growth in a software sector filled with strong secular growth stories, and operating margins declining in FY22 due to heightened investment in Cloud, we remain Equal-weight while our price target moves up to $77.”

Kroger, one of the world’s largest food retailers, is expected to report its fiscal second-quarter earnings of $0.64 per share, which represents a year-over-year decline of over 12% from $0.73 per share seen in the same period a year ago.

The retailer, which operates over 2,500 supermarkets in the U.S., would post revenue of 30.4 billion, down about -0.3% year on year. However, it is worth noting that in the last four quarters, on average, the company has beaten earnings estimates over 21%.
