What: Shares of apparel manufacturer G-III Apparel
So what: Earnings, or rather lack thereof, were the culprit for G-III's decline today. For the first quarter, the company reported a loss of $0.03 per share on revenue of $197 million. Though revenue topped analyst estimates and the loss was narrower than last year's, the folks on Wall Street were expecting a $0.04-per-share profit.
Now what: The company's outlook may have been just as disappointing for investors. Management maintained its previous full-year earnings-per-share guidance of $3.15 to $3.25 and introduced a second-quarter forecast of $0.18 to $0.22 per share. Current analysts' forecasts fall at the upper end of both ranges, whereas investors typically like to see those expectations line up with the midpoint of management's view.
