Skechers (SKX) and Crocs (CROX) both easily beat second-quarter earnings forecasts and gave strong guidance Thursday. SKX stock is poised to top a buy point, and CROX stock jumped to a new high.


Skechers Earnings

Estimates: Wall Street sees Skechers swinging to a profit of 52 cents a shares from a year-ago loss of 44 cents a share, as revenue soars 104% to $1.49 billion.

Results: EPS of 88 cents on revenue of $1.66 billion. Domestic wholesale sales shot up 205.7%, with international wholesale up 94.8%. Direct-to-consumer sales soared 137.8%.

Stock: Shares jumped 6.6% to 54.60 late after closing up 1.9% at 151.21 Thursday. SKX stock is now positioned to clear a 51.58 buy point from a double-bottom base on a weekly chart.

Crocs Earnings

But CROX stock found support at the 10-week line, which also offered a buy point at about 109.50 with a buy range extending 10% to 120.45.

The relative strength line, which tracks performance vs. the S&P 500 index, is trending upward, approaching its all-time high. Its RS Rating is 97 out of a possible 99. Its EPS Rating is a top-notch 99, as it’s posted four straight quarters of earnings growth.
