retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Reuters reports this morning that Royal Ahold has said that it will announce its third quarter results tomorrow, a week earlier than planned.

No other details were given, and spokesmen from the company refused to address speculation that this means the company will be issuing a profit warning or announcing a major executive change.
KC's View:
One thing seems likely. Ahold won’t be announcing good news (unless, of course, the folks in Amsterdam have a better sense of humor and eye for mischief than we think they do…)
