    All I know is my COSTCO is always always always sure they may not have as big a profit but I am sure they are not losing money and will be here long after all of us..

    If we have any chance to recover this market VOTE Republican in November or two more years of this tax, spend, inflation and recession madness ! COST will be $200

    As we await Costco’s 2022 earnings report on Thursday, here are my projections. As I have mentioned before, the 4th quarter is 17 weeks (once every 5 years) vs 16 weeks and it seems that most of the analysts are only looking at 16 weeks. That being said, my estimates for Sales around 75B, higher than 73B on Yahoo + 1.4B in membership for revenue at $75.5 to 76.5B. This is notably higher than the analysts (all of them) so I rank this estimate at nearly 100% of beating.
    In terms of earning this is more difficult as Costco may do a few things with the numbers that we don’t have access to (charges, currency adjustments, etc). Therefore, my estimate is for $4.49 with a range $4.41 to $4.56 per share. The range is from the firm $4.42 from revenue plus the change due to the acquisition of the Taiwan assets. Hard to say if Taiwan is all the partnership assets so that number could vary (didn’t dig into this one), but that is about $.05 to $.07 depending on exchange rates. Other variance comes from the 17 week being missed in the single analysts sheet I have access to.
    Given these estimates and I appreciate debate, I think Costco is in for a good earnings report in a generally bad market. Hopefully this results in our march toward 600/share, but the recent week was difficult to watch. Go longs and good luck on Thursday and a soaring Friday.

    Powell should have announced a "pause" after this last rate hike. We need time to see how these hikes work, you can't turn a big ship around on a dime. We have had 3 in row 3/4 rate hikes, the smart thing to do is "Pause". This whole administration is anything but smart, however.

    this hurts when you have 1000 shares
  • j
    Just means I’ll be getting more for my money when I use my Costco paycheck and bonuses to buy shares 😎

    It’s amazing how many BS posts end up on these boards. COSTCO reported good numbers and of course the stock is down in AH .. did anyone expect it not to? Smart investors will add to their position tomorrow and over the next few weeks and months the stock will slowly work it’s way back up into the mid 500’s.. sure Biden’s economy isn’t helping but people will still go to Costco and the stock will continue to be a good investment.. IMHO good luck

    This is easy the best retailer out there. They know how to fight inflation.

    EPS of $4.09 v $4.06. Revenue of $72.09B v $72.06B. I'll take that. The market is just irrational, other than that, they had a good beat in tough times when the other retailers have struggled. Their comps were a beat too.
