What tops analysts wish lists?

Analysts weighing in on what they expect for same-store sales, unchanged sales are unchanged to half a percent higher.

We had comparison points of hurricane sandy last year, so all the supplies were purchased last year.

A pretty healthy majority.

How little he did not happen because of the hurricane.

This year, you had no hurricane but halloween did happen.

We will see how it translates to the bottom line.

Traffic may have been hurt by the government shutdown affecting confidence overall.

But food stamp cuts, food is a big driver, so all of this is what is going into the formula.

Holiday sales will have some sort of comment in the early release or conference call.

Any sense of what they may say?

There could be good aspects going into the first quarter next year.
