4 After-Hours Movers

It ain’t over ’til it’s over

Earnings season hasn’t ended yet, and four stocks are making decent moves in the after hours session after reporting their results. Let’s take a quick look at each:

Costco Wholesale Corporation (Nasdaq: COST) is down over 1% after reporting revenue of $31.62 billion and EPS of $1.70, which came in mixed compared with analysts’ expectations of $31.90 million in revenue and $1.69 in EPS.  Costco is not now, nor ever has been a cheap stock.  I am often flummoxed by its valuation, but there it sits.

ULTA Beauty Inc. (Nasdaq: ULTA) is down over 1% after reporting revenues of $1.54 billion and adjusted EPS of $2.63, both of which beat analysts expectations of $1.51 billion in revenue and $2.48 in adjusted EPS. As a result of its strong performance, the retailer raised its full-year EPS outlook.  Stock has been on a tear – could use a breather.

Lululemon Athletica Inc. (Nasdaq: LULU) is up over 6% after reporting revenues of $649.71 million and EPS of $0.55, both of which beat analysts’ expectations of $615.64 million in revenue and $0.46 in EPS. As a result of its strong performance in the first quarter, the company raised its full-year revenue and EPS outlook.  Maybe all companies shouldn’t have CEO’s (or they should be looking internally).

Workday Inc. (Nasdaq: WDAY) is down over 2% after reporting revenue of $618.64 million and adjusted EPS of $0.33, which beat analysts’ expectations of $609.40 million in revenue and $0.26 in EPS. Based on its strong first-quarter performance, the company went on to raise its full-year subscription revenue outlook.  Workday’s only sin will be slightly decelerating growth.
