While its growth has been slowed over the past year, things are starting to get better. Last month, the company raised its fourth-quarter guidance on the strength of an 8.8% surge in comps for the month of January.
At the time, the company announced that its earnings would exceed its initial forecast that called for $0.62 to $0.64 a share. Where does Wall Street stand today? At bare minimum, $0.65 a share. In other words, it looks like BJ's streak of not missing its bottom-line numbers will continue.
