Penney operates about 1,100 retail stores and jcp.com. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for a loss per share of (80c) on revenue of $2.81B, according to First Call.

Comparable store sales increased 6% for the quarter and online sales through jcp.com were up 16.7% from the year-ago period to $249M. On its Q2 earnings conference call, the company said that expected a "profitable" sales in the back-to-school season, adding that the company could see some "anomalies" in expense during Q3. NEWS: During the quarter, J.C. Penney announced the appointment of Marvin Ellison, EVP of stores at Home Depot (HD), as president and CEO-Designee, effective November 1. Ellison will also join the board, and succeed Myron E. Ullman, III as CEO of the company on August 1, 2015, at which time Ullman will become executive chairman of the board for a period of one year. At its analyst day in October, the retailer lowered its Q3 SSS view to low single digit growth from its previous view of mid single digit growth. J.C. Penney also warned investors that its September sales were weaker than expected. Despite lowering its SSS forecast, the retailer reaffirmed the rest of its quarterly guidance, including gross margins and SG&A expenses, and maintained all of its fiscal year 2014 guidance metrics, including mid-single digit SSS growth and positive free cash flow. STREET RESEARCH: Cleveland Research said J.C. Penney's challenging sales trends continued in October and is positioning to increase promotional activity during the holiday season. Wells Fargo, which has an Underperform rating on the stock, said that Ellison lacks expertise in apparel and accessories, where J.C. Penney is having a tough time. J.C.
