Skechers Is No Sketch Comedy

Skechers Is No Sketch ComedyThe footwear speedster gets tripped up after a disappointing quarterRick Munarri/TheMotleyFool
Skechers(NYSE:SKX) executed a 3-for-1 stock split on Oct. 16. Every shareholder received two additional shares with the stock dropping to a third of its previous price. It was a zero-sum game. There was an unintentional 3-for-2 stock split a week later after the athletic footwear maker posted disappointing quarterly results, but investors didn't receive any more stock.

Yes, that's a lighthearted way to describe the gloomy aftermath following Skechers' rough quarter last week. The stock shed nearly a third of its value on Oct. 23 as growth decelerated, particularly at its domestic wholesale division that was rolling at a torrid pace before last week's letdown. The market had been spoiled in previous quarters.

The stock's 31.5% hit in a single day hurts -- that's no joking matter -- but it's hard for longtime investors to compla…

New Global Energy is Focused on Acquiring High-Growth Assets in Aquaculture, Agriculture and Health & Wellness
New Global Energy, Inc. (NGEY), a public company focused on Aqua-Farming, Agriculture, and Health & Wellness, announced today that it has launched the tilapia spawning season at its farm in California's Coachella Valley with a record number of fish. New financing commitments from outside investors mean the coming year should prove to be record setting in terms of the number of sustainable fish grown and ultimately sold on the company's farm.
October is a critical month for planning and preparation since fish are seasonal and the new fingerlings will reach sufficient size from October through mid-November before temperature drops and will survive the mildly cold months of December and January. To help insure strong growth and because consumers increasingly demand healthy seafood, New Global feeds its fish a formula that is free of GMOs, antibiotics …

Ford misses on earnings, but the third quarter was its best ever in North America

Ford Misses On Earnings, Best Third Quarter Ever in North America By Matthew DeBord

Ford reported third quarter earnings on Tuesday.
They were slightly lower than analysts expectations. The company earned $0.45 per share. Analysts surveyed by Bloomberg were expecting $0.47 per share.

Revenue was $38.1 billion.
Higher taxes cut into Ford's profit for the quarter, Reuters reported.

Ford posted its best-ever quarter in North America, driven by sales of the F-150 full-size pickup, which was redesigned to use more lightweight aluminum in its construction.

There were issues with supply of the new truck that weighed on Ford sales earlier in the year. But in the third quarter, the car maker delivered over 207,000 pickups.
The auto market in the US has been booming. It's on a pace to see 17.5 million in new vehicle sales by December.
“We are delivering a breakthrough year,” said CEO Mark Fields in a statement.

Skechers Is Even More Attractive After Earnings Release

Skechers Is Even More Attractive After Earnings Release About: Skechers USA Inc. (SKX) SummaryThe global footwear industry will grow at a CAGR of 1.72% by 2020. Skechers expects to double its business over the next five years. Skechers GoWalk should keep adding more sales in the coming quarters.  While investors were enjoying the tech rally last week, the shoe stocks fell sharply after earnings announcement of Under Armour (NYSE:UA) and revenue miss of Skechers USA (NYSE:SKX). Although Skechers delivered strong earnings growth in the latest quarter, the soft sector outlook and thus ability to maintain a high double-digit top-line growth in a very competitive industry is now a major concern. Resultantly, Skechers plunged due to deteriorated investor sentiment and lost 31.50% value in one day.

Skechers share price is on a consistent rise since 2014 driven by strong top as well as bottom-line growth. After the crash, Skechers is still outperformer, up 75% YTD. Skec…
