Zacks’ analyst wrote, “Kirkland’s posted second quarter loss of $0.06 per share was wider than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of $0.04 as well as the year-ago loss of $0.03. Although top line improved year over year by 6.6% backed by higher comps, it missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 1.4%. Lower than expected sales in June resulted in lower than expected sales. We believe the slowdown in the home building sector could affect the demand for the company’s home furnishing products in next few quarters. Moreover, continued slag in consumer spending in the U.S. due to slowdown in the economy keeps us from being too positive on the stock. However the growing e-commerce business of the company and its aggressive store opening program keep us on the sidelines “
