What Costco's Amazing Earnings Show Us

Today, Fool.com analysts Blake Bos and Isaac Pino look at what Costco's earnings tell investors today. All in all, the company's earnings were excellent and also indicated that inflation may not play out to be as bad previously expected. Costco is continuing its steady-as-she goes approach to business, and it's working. 

The company also saw great sales from its televisions, which could be a leading positive indicator for manufacturers.

Perhaps the best news for investors, though, is the company's hinting at a potential dividend hike in the future.

The retail space is in the midst of the biggest paradigm shift since mail order took off at the turn of the last century. Only those most forward-looking and capable companies will survive, and they'll handsomely reward the investors that understand the landscape.
