ANALYSIS: StockJumpers trajectory analysis reveals a negative market reaction to the release even with lowered expectations. There may be news of store closures or other potential future guidance that causes a downturn, even though we think they will meet or beat expectations on the base metrics. Thety did really well the last 2 quarters but this was due to seasonal sales.  And though retail has improved with the boost in the economy, the big brick and mortar stores are still not on solid ground with the new world economy.

We are overall SHORT for this event.

(Note: This is a BEFORE MARKET OPEN release – tomorrow )
