Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF) is scheduled to release its fiscal third-quarter financial results before the markets open on Tuesday. The consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters are earnings of $0.67 per share and $924.64 million in revenue. The same period from last year reportedly had earnings of $0.70 per share and revenue of $938.2 million.
Overall, last quarter Tiffany made a solid recovery from a very quiet first quarter. Since then management has enacted initiatives to enhance the company’s ability to provide customers with “extraordinary products and experiences and ultimately contribute to improved financial results as the year goes on.”
Following the tough first quarter, shares hit a low over the summer. But Tiffany has been a steady bull, apart from brief fluctuations since the Brexit vote.
The first effect of these results was seen in the second quarter, but we might expect to see these continue into this earnings report. These results have the potential to push the stock to new highs for the year, hopefully pulling the stock up from its two-year slide.
