Big Lots

The small-cap discount retailer is expecting to deliver a 6.4 percent year-over-year increase in earnings; management guided earnings are in the range of $0.31 to $0.35 per share ($0.33 midpoint), up from $0.31 per share reported a year ago.

However, it should be noted that last quarter, Big Lots reported earnings of $0.60 per share on revenue of $1.28 billion. It should also be noted that earnings are quite seasonal and tend to peak on the fourth quarter of each year, bottoming in the third quarter.

Regis Corporation

Regis is a small-cap company that owns, operates and franchises beauty salons. For the fourth quarter, the Street is projecting consensus earnings of $0.08 per share on revenue of $477.85 million.

These figures compare to last quarter’s net loss of ($0.07) per share on revenue of $453.96 million and the net loss of ($0.10) per share on revenue of $483.9 million registered a year ago.

However, note in the chart above that the company has widely missed expectations in seven of the last eight quarters.
