Ross Stores' (ROST, $103.31) Q2 earnings exceed expectations

Ross Stores Inc. reported second-quarter earnings that surpassed Wall Street estimates.

The department store chain reported earnings of $1.14 a share, higher than analyst’ estimate of $1.11 a share. It also marked an increase from the year-ago period’s $1.04 a share.

Sales came in at $3.98 billion, beating analysts' estimate of $3.96 billion. It was higher than  $3.74 billion of the prior year. Its comparable-store sales grew +3% compared with the same quarter last year.

According to Ross Stores, there would be a slight impact on its third and fourth quarters from the 10% tariffs on goods imported from China. For the third quarter, Ross Stores forecasts per-share earnings of 92 to 96 cents. For the fourth quarter, the company expects per-share earnings to be between $1.20 and $1.25.

The company issued full-year earnings guidance of $4.41 to $4.50, compared with its previous outlook of $4.38 to $4.52.

Industry description

Companies in the apparel and/or footwear retail industry sell clothing, accessories and footwear, for different age groups and genders. The industry’s product categories could range from basics, such as underwear, to luxury items. Some retailers source items from wholesalers or an apparel brand to sell in their stores; some others are licensed to make and market their own retail goods under particular brands. Several companies outsource production of clothing to developing/emerging economies where labor costs are relatively inexpensive. Apparel retail is often influenced by fashion trends, and many companies feel the need to adapt to what’s “in vogue” to retain customers and attract new ones. A major disruption in this industry has been the burgeoning trend in digital shopping – to compete with rapidly growing e-commerce, even traditional retail players are upping the ante on their online platforms. Much of the products’ performance in apparel/footwear retail is cyclical, i.e., economic boom times encourage consumer spending, while recessions induce thriftiness among people. Some large-cap U.S. apparel/footwear retail companies include TJX Companies Inc., Ross Stores, Inc., Lululemon Athletica Inc. and Burlington Stores, Inc.

The average market capitalization across the Apparel/Footwear Retail Industry is 12.67B. The market cap for tickers in the group ranges from 256K to 119.4B. IDEXY holds the highest valuation in this group at 119.4B. The lowest valued company is DESTQ at 256K.
