Hello Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog, Stock Picks Bob's Advice. As always, please remember that I am an amateur investor, so please remember to consult with your professional investment advisors prior to making any investment decisions based on information on this website.
It is almost Halloween, and I was out at a party this afternoon doing of all things a scavenger hunt. My team came in last. But we had a good time in any case. But this evening, I wanted to make sure I take care of my "review" that I like to do each week, looking back about a year at all of the picks that week, and seeing how they turned out!
Fortunately, I only picked one stock during the week of August 23, 2004. On August 25, 2004, I picked Williams-Sonoma (WSM) for Stock Picks Bob's Advice when it was trading at $34.64. WSM closed at $37.34 on 10/28/05, for a gain of $2.70 since posting or 7.8%.
On August 23, 2005, Williams-Sonoma reported 2nd quarter 2005 earnings results. Revenue grew 13% to $776.2 million from $689.6 million for the same quarter last year. Net income grew to $30.8 million or $.26/share, for the three months ended July 31, 2005, up from $27.6 million or $.23/share last year. As reported elsewhere, comparable store sales increased 3.7% during the quarter.
Thus, with only one stock to review for the week, the performance for that stock, Williams-Sonoma (WSM), was a gain of 7.8% since listing on the blog.
