TUESDAY

Earnings Spotlight: Walmart (WMT, $117.89) – Investors will find out just how well Walmart’s holiday season went when the company reports its quarterly earnings before the Feb. 18 market open. Nomura Instinet analyst Michael Baker painted a mixed picture a few days ahead of the report, reducing his fourth-quarter profit and comparable-store sales estimates, but retaining a Buy holding on shares. Investors also might be concerned from the signal Target sent out a few weeks ago, when it reported disappointing holiday revenues thanks to sluggish demand for electronics and toys. Wall Street isn’t looking for much out of this quarter: on average, analysts are estimating a 2.7% year-over-year increase in revenues to $142.59 billion, and a modest 2.1% improvement in profits to $1.44 per share.

Other Noteworthy Reports: Advance Auto Parts (AAP), Agilent (A), American Campus Communities (ACC), American Water Works (AWK), Bloomin’ Brands (BLMN), Devon Energy (DVN), Ecolab (ECL), Expeditors International of Washington (EXPD), Extra Space Storage (EXR), Fluor (FLR), Groupon (GRPN), Herbalife Nutrition (HLF), La-Z-Boy (LZB), Leidos (LDOS), LendingClub (LC), Medtronic (MDT), TransUnion (TRU)

WEDNESDAY

Earnings Spotlight: Wingstop (WING, $100.17) – Wingstop shares have endured a couple massive swings over the past year, but currently the momentum is in its favor – shares are up more than 30% over the past three months. The wing-slinger has benefited from a franchise model similar to McDonald’s (MCD), making it relatively easy and cheap to expand; it’s already at 1,340 locations, and management is targeting long-term expansion to nearly 6,000 locations, evenly split between domestic and international. Analysts have been more bullish than not of late, with 10 Buy ratings over the past three months versus just four Holds. That includes Goldman Sachs, who is bullish on the company’s international aspirations and minimized weaker-than-expected unit growth for the previous quarter, saying it didn’t signal a slowdown in the broader growth story. Wingstop is expected to report quarterly results ahead of the Feb. 19 opening bell. Analysts are looking for revenues of $52.97 million (+30.80% year-over-year) and profits of 17 cents per share (+13.3%).

Earnings Spotlight: Boston Beer (SAM, $408.91) – Boston Beer is having itself a nice run, gaining more than 40% over the past year, but the thing getting investors excited isn’t its iconic Sam Adams brand … it’s hard seltzer. Boston Beer also owns the Truly brand of hard seltzer – a category that Credit Suisse thinks will double in revenues in 2020 and account for as much as a tenth of beer sales in three years. And Credit Suisse analyst Kaumil Gajrawala thinks growing competition is a plus for Truly, not a hindrance, because it could bring even more attention to hard seltzer, acting as a rising tide that lifts many boats. SAM reports after the Feb. 19 close, and analysts are expecting a mixed bag: revenues of $280.55 million (+24.60 year-over-year), but profits of $1.41 per share (-24.2%).

Other Noteworthy Reports: Albemarle (ALB), Avis Budget (CAR), Bausch Health (BHC), Blue Apron (APRN), Cedar Fair (FUN), Cheesecake Factory (CAKE), Coeur d’Alene Mines (CDE), Dish Network (DISH), Energy Transfer (ET), Entergy (ETR), Fiverr (FVRR), Fossil (FOSL), Garmin (GRMN), Genuine Parts (GPC), Host Hotels (HST), Hyatt Hotels (H), Netease (NTES), Owens Corning (OC), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), Realty Income (O), Stamps.com (STMP), Vipshop (VIPS), Williams Cos. (WMB), Zillow (ZG)
