The retail industry has gone through major disruptions lately, and even warehouse giant Costco Wholesale (NASDAQ:COST) hasn’t been immune to the difficult conditions. Yet last quarter, Costco said that it would implement membership-fee increases as of the beginning of June in an attempt to bolster a key source of revenue, and it hoped that improving conditions in the consumer economy would lead to better shopping results.
Coming into Thursday’s fiscal third-quarter financial report, Costco investors had looked for signs of strengthening performance, including accelerated revenue growth and gains on the bottom line. Costco’s results delivered more than most of those following the stock had expected to see, and that could bode well for the retailer going forward, as well as it aims to fend off online competition. Let’s take a closer look at Costco Wholesale and what its results say about its future.
