J.C. Penney Shares Plummet After Disastrous Q4

JC PennyOn Wednesday, J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP) announced that it lost $552 million during the fourth quarter, significantly worse than the $87 million it lost during the same period a year ago.

Investors didn’t like the results, sending J.C. Penney shares down more than 15% in Thursday morning trading.

The struggling retailer said that sales during the holiday quarter tumbled to $3.88 billion, down 28% from the prior year. That disappointed Wall Street, which was looking for sales of $4.08 billion, Bloomberg noted.

Annual sales were down $4 billion, marking the retailers worst annual revenue performance in more than two decades.

The poor results put more pressure on CEO Ron Johnson, the former Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) executive, who was hired to turnaround the floundering chain’s fortunes. Johnson implemented a “no sales” campaign that bombed with consumers. J.C. Penney has recently moved to return discounts and sales to its marketing.
