RadioShack Braces For Earnings (RSH)

Print Email

On Tuesday we’ll get to see earnings out of The RadioShack Corp. (NYSE: RSH). The estimates for the consumer electric retailer from First Call are $0.72 EPS on $1.33 billion in revenues.  Next quarter estimates are $0.28 EPS on $928.13 million in revenues. Estimates for fiscal 2008 are $1.57 EPS on $4.01 billion in revenues.

Analysts have an average price target of $19.00.  RadioShack’s 52-week trading range is $13.31 to $35.00, so you can see how bad this one is with more than 50% haircut.  early 2007 was the time of this one, but that has come and gone.  If a turnaround turned and suddenly came unwound, what would you venture to guess is priced in?  With a weak Best Buy and a weak Circuit City, you have to imagine that the bad news is mostly in this one unless Julian Day steps in the dog pile.

It’s hard top imagine any greatness here, and it’s hard to imagine anyone demanding anything better than decent.
