DSW and BWS Earnings
TAKEAWAY FROM HEDGEYE’S BRIAN MCGOUGH:
One company missed by 13%, the other beat by 13%. One comped down 3.7%, and the other comped up 1.3%. One guided up. The other guided down. One blamed weather. The other did not. One SIGMA improved, the other eroded. All else equal, we'd bet that 9 out of 10 people would say that that the company that surprised on the upside is DSW, and the loser is Brown Shoe. But today, they'd be wrong.
