Los Angelas, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/07/2012 -- Shares of women's accessories maker Vera Bradley (NASDAQ:VRA) were on the discount rack today, falling as much as 13% after investors were unimpressed with the guidance in its earnings report.The handbag maker actually beat estimates in the quarter, posting EPS of $0.44 a share, up from $0.32 a year ago, and topping expectations of $0.38. Revenues grew 14% to $138.3 million, also ahead of estimates, and CEO Michael Ray credited "the strength of the brand and distinctive products" for the strong quarter. However, management guided fourth-quarter earnings at $0.55 to $0.57, below the Street's projections at $0.60. The fourth quarter is always important for retailers, but the 13% drop seems like an overreaction here. After all, the full-year forecast still tops what the experts had expected, and there is still plenty of growth potential. In other words, the beat in the third quarter outweighs the projected loss in the fourth. I'd see today's drop as a buying opportunity.

There aren’t many companies reporting on Wednesday but the three that I’m highlighting are extremely interesting. Costco (NASDAQ:COST) reported a strong set of results last time around, and I would advise reading the linked article to see the relationship between margins and revenue growth. Investors will be looking for signs that margins can and revenues can grow together. I think the omens are good here and I’m particularly interested to see if there is any positive commentary on future input costs. Inflation should abate on some non-food items.
