Tiffany (TIF) offered an impressive earnings report even if it was jumping over a low bar, said TheStreet's Jim Cramer. Propped up by a combination of stock repurchases and lower costs for gold and other metals, Tiffany's earnings came in at 76 cents a share, outpacing Wall Street forecasts of 68 cents. The company surprisingly maintained its full-year sales and earnings outlooks despite global economic challenges weighing on demand for pricey jewelry and post-election protests of Donald Trump in front of Tiffany's iconic store on Fifth Avenue in New York. Tiffany foresees worldwide sales falling by a low-single-digit percentage, while earnings are expected to decline by a mid-single-digit percentage.
