The company plans to host an earnings conference call to review the results of its fiscal 2014 first quarter results and present management's outlook for the balance of fiscal 2014 at 4:30 p.m. (ET) on Thursday. There'll be a live webcast of the conference call available at its home webpage.
Analysts will be listening carefully and expect this quarter's EPS to have increased by an average estimate of over 21% from the same year-ago quarter.
When it comes to sales growth and revenue, the same group of analysts is looking for around a 7% year-over-year quarterly improvement. KKD had huge positive earnings surprises virtually every quarter in the previous fiscal year. Yet in the last quarter it disappointed by 25% which barely moved the stock's price.
Here's a one-year chart including the recent history of revenue per share (TTM) and EBIDTA earnings. You can see that KKD took off in late 2012 and never looked back including Tuesday's 3.2% rally.
