WEDNESDAY

Earnings Spotlight: Coty Inc. (COTY, $8.92) – Coty shareholders are sitting on 36% gains for the year-to-date, but the path there has been simply stomach-churning. Coty popped in February after an earnings beat and revealing that German conglomerate JAB offered to boost its stake in the beauty company to 60%. It received another lift in May after JAB’s tender offer was completed, and amid news of insider buying. Shares were up by 110% by mid-June, but have lost more than a third of their value since early July, when the company announced a disappointing turnaround and restructuring plan that projected virtually no sales growth through 2023. Given all of 2019’s volatility, Coty could be in for a big move following the release of its results for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, due out before the Aug. 28 opening bell. Analysts are expecting an 8.1% year-over-year decline in revenues to $2.11 billion, but a 14.3% pop in profits to 16 cents per share.

Other Noteworthy Reports: Box Inc. (BOX), Brown-Forman (BF.B), Coty Inc. (COTY), Daktronics (DAKT), Express (EXPR), Five Below (FIVE), Guess? (GES), H&R Block (HRB), Movado (MOV), PVH Corp. (PVH), Tiffany & Co. (TIF), Verint Systems (VRNT), Williams-Sonoma (WSM)

THURSDAY

Earnings Spotlight: Dollar General (DG, $139.74) – Dollar General has been a much smoother player in 2019, gaining 29% in what has been a relatively gentle upslope. It has been earning plenty of positive coverage of late as a result – 13 of the 14 ratings doled out to DG over the past three months have been of the Buy persuasion, according to TipRanks data. Goldman Sachs’ Christopher Prykull upgraded Dollar General earlier this month – from Neutral to Buy, and from a $142-per-share price target to $152 – because of the retailer’s defensive characteristics. He expects revenue growth to continue, too. BofA Merrill Lynch analysts (Buy) raised their price target from $145 to $160 after spending data showed strength among low-income consumers. Analysts are expecting good results when Dollar General reports earnings ahead of the Aug. 29 open – 6.9% revenue growth to $6.89 billion, and a 3.3% uptick in profits to $1.57 per share.

Earnings Spotlight: Ulta Beauty (ULTA, $334.87) – Ulta Beauty notched new all-time highs in July as it continued its recovery from a 2017 slump. It has pulled back since then, just like much of the rest of the market, but shares still are up 35% for the year. Oppenheimer’s Rupesh Parikh reiterated his Outperform rating (equivalent of Buy) on Aug. 21, saying shares could hit $390 within the next 12 months. But he warned the road ahead could be rocky. “We overall expect a bumpier road for ULTA shares from here, given current negative investor sentiment toward retail names, upcoming difficult comparisons, and typical December challenges for the shares. We would take advantage of any potential weakness in a likely continued volatile trade. ULTA remains a top pick for us.” Ulta will report its quarterly results after the Aug. 29 closing bell. Analysts are expecting $1.68 billion in revenues (+12.8%) and $2.80 in per-share profits (+13.8%).

Other Noteworthy Reports: Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), American Outdoor Brands (AOBC), Best Buy (BBY), Burlington Stores (BURL), Cooper (COO), Dell Technologies (DELL), Dollar Tree (DLTR), Hain Celestial (HAIN), Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD), Workday (WDAY)
