Majority of analysts covering the company have reconfirmed their estimates over the last thirty days, suggesting they are expecting the business to stay the course heading into the earnings. The company missed Wall St's revenue estimates four times over the last two years.

With Sally Beauty being the first among its peers to report earnings this season, we don't have anywhere else to look at to get a hint at how this quarter will unravel for specialty retail stocks, but the whole sector has been facing a sell-off since late last year, with stocks down on average 3.6% over the last month. Sally Beauty is down 5.8% during the same time, and is heading into the earnings with analyst price target of $11.8, compared to share price of $12.5.

One way to find opportunities in the market is to watch for generational shifts in the economy. Almost every company is slowly finding itself becoming a technology company and facing cybersecurity risks and as a result, the demand for cloud-native cybersecurity is skyrocketing. This company is leading a massive technological shift in the industry and with revenue growth of 70% year on year and best-in-class SaaS metrics it should definitely be on your radar.
