Mattress Firm Expected To Deliver Double-Digit Growth


Mattress Firm Holding Corp (NASDAQ: MFRM) is scheudled to release its first quarter earnings after Tuesday's bell.

The company’s earnings respond to some sort of cycle: peak in the third quarter each year, fall substantially on the fourth quarter, then recuperating in the second quarter of the next year.

Expectations for the current quarter a relatively low. According to Estimize, the Street anticipates earnings of $0.38 per share on revenue of $555.92 million. This estimate implies a 22.5 percent year-over-year increase in earnings, and a 66.9 percent surge in sales.

The second chart illustrates the evolution of sentiment over time. The Street’s consensus has been falling consistently since late-February, when it stood at $0.46 per share, to current levels, 21 percent below this estimate.
