Costco Price Trading in a Technical Formation

  • Stock Market Analysis

Shares in Costco Wholesale Corporation (symbol ‘COST’) have gone through a very turbulent year with the share price ranging from high $610 to low $405. The company’s earnings report for the fiscal quarter ending February 2023 is set to be released on Thursday 2nd of March, after market close. The consensus EPS for Q1 is $3,21 compared to Q1 2022’s $2,92. 

‘Costco generated just 2% of its revenue from membership fees, however, those $4.2 billion in membership fees accounted for most of its $7.8 billion in operating profits. This clever “formula” of generating revenue with a very high profit margin has helped the company get through a hard year.’ said Antreas Themistokleous, an analyst at Exness.

On the technical side the price has been trading in a descending triangle formation for the last 6 months. Currently the price is facing resistance at a point on the chart where is the crossing of the 20 day simple moving average line with the 50% of the daily Fibonacci retracement level. Given that there will be no big surprise percentage on the EPS at the date of the release the price most probably will continue to trade within the boundaries of the triangle formation in the short term.
