10:46 EDTBIGBig Lots tumbles after Q3 results misses estimates
Shares of closeout retailer Big Lots (BIG) are lower this morning after the company's third quarter earnings failed to meet analyst estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Big Lots reported Q3 earnings per share of (6c) and revenue of $1.11B, missing analysts' consensus estimates of (5c) and $1.12B, respectively. Same store sales increased 1.4% for the quarter, the company said. Big Lots said Jennifer, its core customer, is responding positively to the improved merchandising strategies such as the recent expansion of its Food category and the Furniture lease-to-purchase program. Inventory ended the quarter at $1.08B vs. $1.24B for the previous year. Looking ahead, Big Lots raised the high end of its fourth quarter EPS view to $1.70-$1.80 from $1.70-$1.76 against analysts' consensus estimates of $1.78. and backed its Q4 SSS view of a low single digit increase. For fiscal year 2014, Big Lots backed its FY14 EPS view of $2.40-$2.50 against analysts' estimates of $2.49 and SSS guidance of up 1%-2%. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the conference call to discuss Q3 earnings, Big Lots said it expects to see double digit drops in Electronics in the fourth quarter. Big Lots said it was encouraged by the start of November where comps were up by 2%, but also commented on less than favorable results from Thanksgiving and Black Friday, with one executive noting the lack of traffic at store checkouts during Black Friday. The retailer also said it sees positive opportunity for January in food, furniture and home. PRICE ACTION: During morning trading, Big Lots fell $6.56, or 13.68, to $41.39. OTHERS TO WATCH: Five Below (FIVE), which reported in-line third quarter EPS and a lower-than-expected fourth quarter and fiscal year 2014 outlook, is down 12.3% to $37.56.
