    Sotheby's 2008 Auction, Profit Estimates Cut by Stock Analyst

    Sotheby's auction sales and profit in 2008 may be lower than expected because of the "slowing outlook'' for financial markets, said an analyst at Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC.

    George F. Sutton, the analyst, lowered his estimate for auction sales at Sotheby's to $5.02 billion, from $5.4 billion previously. He cut his earnings estimate for this year to $2.50 a share, from $3.09, he said in a report today.

    Both revised numbers are below Sutton's estimates for 2007 results. Sotheby's is expected to report fourth-quarter and full- year results for 2007 in late February.

    "As we take a sober look at the slowing outlook for the U.S. and other worldwide markets, we anticipate that high-end auctions may also take a breather,'' Sutton said in the report.
