Here's How Chico's FAS (CHS) is Poised Before Q3 Earnings

Asia's Tech News Daily

We expect Chico’s FAS, Inc. CHS to register growth in its top and bottom-line performances from the respective year-ago reported figures when it releases third-quarter fiscal 2021 earnings on Nov 30, before market open. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the fiscal third quarter currently stands at a loss of 3 cents, which shows an improvement from a loss of 42 cents reported in the year-ago quarter. The consensus mark has been stable in the past 30 days.

A glance at its performance in the trailing four quarters shows that it delivered an earnings surprise of 70.5%, on average.

The consensus estimate for quarterly revenues is currently pegged at $426.1 million, indicating an increase of about 21% from the year-ago period’s reported figure.

Key Factors to Note

Chico’s FAS’ quarterly performance is likely to have benefited from steady progress in its turnaround strategy. CHS is focused on efficiently managing expenses and boosting its margins. Also, it constantly experiences strength in its brands, thanks to continuous enhancements in product and marketing. CHS’ Chico’s and White House Black Market brands continue to gain from its efforts to elevate styling and quality.

On its last earnings call, management had projected third-quarter consolidated net sales growth of 18-22% from the prior-year reported number. It anticipated a gross margin rate increase of 13-15 percentage points and SG&A, as a rate of net sales, improvement of 500-600 basis points from the respective year-ago levels.

On the flip side, supply-chain disruptions, including elevated freight costs, extended transit times and product supplier handover delays, stemming from the pandemic cannot be ruled out. In addition, headwinds comprising cost pressures from logistics, sourcing, fulfillment and the labor market remain deterrents.

The combination of a positive Earnings ESP and a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), 2 (Buy) or 3 (Hold) increases the chances of an earnings beat.
