Check out the companies making headlines before the bell:
Dick’s Sporting Goods — The sporting goods retailer beat estimates by 4 cents a share, with adjusted quarterly profit of 62 cents per share. Revenue beat forecasts as well. Comparable-store sales were flat, better than the forecast of a 1.3% decline by analysts polled by Refinitiv. Dick’s also raised its full-year outlook.
Abercrombie & Fitch — The apparel seller lost 29 cents per share for its latest quarter, smaller than the 43 cents a share loss that analysts were anticipating. Revenue topped estimates as well, although a comparable-store sales increase of 1% fell slightly short of the 1.3% consensus estimate.
Capri Holdings — The company formerly known as Michael Kors reported adjusted quarterly profit of 63 cents per share, beating estimates by 2 cents a share. The luxury goods retailer’s revenue also came in above forecasts, helped by strength at its Versace and Jimmy Choo brands. Capri gave a weaker-than-expected current-quarter forecast, however, as it spends more on marketing and new store openings.
