Barrington Research’s Alexander Paris andChris Howe write that “early tax season results [are] encouraging” for H&R Block. They explain why:
Managements long-term goal is to grow clients in both the Assisted and DDIY categories. While it will not grow clients in tax season 2017, management expects to significantly reduce client losses. Its approach to tax season 2017 includes changes in all customer facing areas of the business, including its sales and service model, promotion pricing and products (its Refund Advance product, free federal 1040EZ in its offices and free federal 1040EZ/1040A and state filing DDIY offering), and marketing. Through the first half of the tax season, H&R Blocks client volumes have improved and the company is achieving share gains in both the Assisted and DDIY categories. In total, the IRS reported a decline in e-files of 10% through February 24 compared to HRBs decline of 7%. In the Assisted category, HRB outperformed the industry with a decline of 8% compared to the IRS reported decline of 13%. In the DDIY category, HRB outperformed the industry with a decline of 5% compared to the IRS reported decline of 8%. While overall industry and HRB volume is expected to improve in the second half of the tax season, HRBs performance relative to the industry is expected to moderate as its Free Federal 1040EZ and Refund Advance promotions ended February 28.
H&R Block’s market capitalization rose to $5 billion today from $4.3 billion yesterday.

Apart from eCommerce growth, another reason why some analysts are bullish on Amazon is because of itsgrowing offline presence. In anirony of sorts, Amazon.com, Inc which made its name by disrupting the brick-and-mortar retail market is planning on more physical presence. According to a New York Times article, Amazon is going to make a strong push in the bookstore, groceryand furniture segments. Recently, Amazon opened its first store in the same mall where the giant Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS) had its bookstore before Amazon disrupted the publishing industry. For every store that Barnes and Noble will close this year, Amazon is likely to open a new one. Amazon is also opening more grocery shops and fulfillment centers, including one in India.
