Genesco's stock set to soar after profit and same-store sales beats, raised guidance
Shares of Genesco Inc. were indicated up about 11% in premarket trading Friday, after the shoes and accessories retailer reported fiscal third-quarter profit and same-store sales that rose above expectations and raised its full-year outlook, although net sales showed a surprise decline. Net income for the quarter to Nov. 2 rose to $18.9 million, or $1.30 a share, from $14.4 million, or 73 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Excluding non-recurring items, adjusted EPS grew to $1.33 from 97 cents, above the FactSet consensus of $1.08. Net sales fell to $537.3 million from $539.8 million, missing the FactSet consensus of $540.6 million, but same-store sales growth of 3% beat expectations of a 1.5% rise. Among its segments, same-store sales for its Journeys stores grew 4%, for Schuh rose 3% and Johnston & Murphy fell 6%. Chief Executive Robert Dennis said the fourth quarter has "started well, highlighted by solid results during the Black Friday through Cyber Monday period." As a result, the company raised its fiscal 2020 EPS guidance range to $4.10 to $4.40 from $3.80 to $4.20, while affirming its same-store sales growth outlook of 2% to 3%. The stock has lost 16.7% year to date through Thursday, while the SPDR S&P Retail ETF has gained 6.7% and the S&P 500 has climbed 24.4%.
