On Feb. 26 I wrote, Earnings Preview: JCPenney and Best Buy Are Survivors and here's how these names plus one more covered in this report are performing post-earnings.
Best Buy (BBY) ($25.82): Beat EPS estimates by 23 cents earning $1.04 a share released premarket this morning. The stock opened with a day's high at $28.20 as of 10 a.m. Part of the rebound the stock was on reduced costs in an announcement that some store managers faced job cuts, and because the stock had a year-to-date loss of 36.5%. The weekly chart stays negative but oversold unless Friday's close is above its five-week MMA and 200-week SMA at $28.31 and $28.22. My semiannual value levels are $24.82 and $18.95 with a quarterly risky level at $30.06.
J.C. Penney (JCP) ($5.96): Beat EPS estimates by 11 cents reporting a less than expected loss of 68 cents a share after the closing bell Wednesday. The stock gapped above its 50-day SMA at $6.96 this morning well below its 200-day SMA at $11.44. A reason for the strong rebound is the fact that the stock had a year-to-date loss of 38.5%. The weekly chart shifts to positive given a close this week above its five-week MMA at $6.76. My annual value level is $5.10 with a semiannual risky level at $18.25.Kohl's Corp (KSS) ($54.44) This morning beat EPS estimates by 3 cents earning $1.56 a share.
