Michael Kors, Macy's, Tiffany's Top High-End Retail Trend: StockTwits

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- High-end chains have been the highlight for retail store investors. And traders are betting that Michael Kors  (KORS - Get Report) will be on trend.

$KORS Management will raise guidance by $.20 at least. KORS will make new highs on Wednesday. All analysts will raise their price targets. ? Rick (@upod2013) May. 23 at 07:31 PM

The Kors luxury retail brand will report fourth quarter and fiscal 2014 earnings on Wednesday, May 28, before the market open. Analysts expect 68 cents in earnings per share on $815.30 million in sales, according to stats on Yahoo! Finance. The consensus price target is $100.65. Shares traded at $98 at 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday.

Traders on Stocktwits.com are pretty positive on the stock. Sentiment is 97% bullish, according to site analytics.

It's not difficult to understand why. Michael Kors has seen explosive growth. Last quarter, revenue rose 59% from the same period a year ago, to $1 billion. Profits climbed an even higher -- up 61.6% to $619.5 million. The stock jumped more than 18% as a result.

Management has attributed Kors' growth to better brand awareness in Europe, where sales grew nearly 145%, and accessory sales in the U.S.

This time around, expectations are even higher. Many investors anticipate that management will raise fiscal 2014 EPS forecasts beyond the $3.07 to $3.09 guided to last quarter. They anticipate same-store sales will climb more than 25%, topping the $3.18 billion to $3.19 billion guided to last quarter. In fact, consensus estimates on Yahoo! Finance call for fiscal 2014 EPS of $3.12 on $3.21 billion in sales.

@readytoinvest KORS was up more than 20% afterFebruary EPS report. This 1/4 won't be as big a blowout. Raised guidance will move the stock ? Rick (@upod2013) May. 26 at 02:44 PM

$KORS $TSLA there r no certainties in mkt. We can only study history n play the %! YUP! Im long for the final countdown Butter to come!! ? J (@Doozio) May. 26 at 08:14 PM

The high expectations have some investors concerned about a disappointment. Anything less than stellar results could provoke a selloff, some argue.
