Discount clothing retailer Five Below ($NASDAQ:FIVE) is set to report earnings Wednesday June 5 after the market closes - and it could buck the mother of all 2019 earnings trends.The Pennsylvania-based retailer is seeing expectations from a group of analysts tracked by Zacks Investment Research of EPS $0.35. At a time when virtually every company dependent on a brick-and-mortar location for clothing sales disappointed on earnings and have been battered on public markets, Five Below's business model (of selling nearly everything in the store for $5 or less, and doing so at cheaper real estate price points) has guided the stock higher for years as other competitors have faltered, losing foot traffic and shuttering locations to offset poor performance. Here is how Five Below stays above the fray.
