Greater emphasis on new line of products, cost containment efforts, inventory management and global distribution platform have helped lift Skechers’ performance. After witnessing a negative earnings surprise in the second quarter of 2017, Skechers made a sharp come back in the third quarter with the bottom line outperforming the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 37.2%. Following the sturdy performance, shares have been on a bull run and have outpaced the industry in a month. Net sales also beat the estimate for the fourth quarter in row gaining from solid performances at the international wholesale business and company-owned global retail operations. Management now expects both the top and bottom lines to increase year over year during the final quarter. However, higher general & administrative expenses remain a matter of concern. Nevertheless, Skechers expects the rate of increase to decelerate going forward.
