Earlier this year, Deckers Outdoor altered its fiscal year from December 31 to March 31. Thus, the three month period that ended on Mar. 31, 2014 is considered a transition period. DECK shares gained after the apparel and shoe-maker said it recorded a loss of $2.69 million during the three months ending in March. In the prior year, it posted a profit of $1 million during the same period. EPS showed a loss of 8 cents per DECK share, better than the loss of 15 cents that Wall Street had forecast, RTT News notes.
