$COST's comparable sales fell 1% in 1Q16 and were negatively impacted by changes in foreign currencies relative to USD and fall in gasoline prices. The average ticket was also negatively impacted by these items. This was partially offset by rise in shopping frequency. The fall in comparable sales also includes negative impact of cannibalization.
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
