    Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE:PAC), Mexico’s largest private airport operator, completed the first half of 2018 with a modest surge in growth that allowed it to raise its full-year 2018 earnings outlook.

    If you’re invested in Grupo Aeroportuario Del Pacifico (NYSE:PAC), you’ve probably gathered that it’s no cakewalk to obtain useful information on the Mexican airport operator. The company’s earnings filings contain some ingrained complexity due to reporting in the Mexican peso as a monetary unit. Further, adjustments under International Financial Reporting Standards have to be taken into account each quarter to understand operational performance. 

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Mexican airport holding company Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico (NYSE:PAC) achieved a rare quarter in which its typical brisk top-line growth accelerated beyond the rate of service costs, leading to a double-digit rise in operating profit. After looking at the quarter’s numbers from 30,000 feet, we’ll reduce cruising altitude to examine salient details from the report that GAP (as the company refers to itself) issued on Thursday. Note that in the discussion that follows, all comparative numbers are presented against the prior-year quarter (the fourth quarter of 2017).

In and of itself, this is not enough impetus to get long. However, when combined with the fundamental picture, a compelling long thesis emerges.

    Stocks to Watch Today: KHC, HD, JWN, M, AAPL
    Kraft Heinz Co. (NYSE: KHC) is still licking its wounds after an abysmal earnings report on Thursday and a weak 2019 outlook. The consumer goods giant is looking to reshape its business as consumer tastes continue to evolve. According to reports, the firm – backed heavily by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) – is considering a deal to sell its Maxwell House brand.

Right now, you may be wondering whether it’s time to buy some extra bullion.

I don’t blame you.

As you know, I don’t consider myself a gold bug, but I do track the metals weekly in my Wall Street Examiner Precious Metals Pro Trader. Those of you who are gold bugs (and I have deep respect for you) can use that information however you see fit.
