Skechers (NYSE:SKX) reported earnings per share of 71 cents for the first quarter of the year. This is a drop when compared to the company’s earnings per share of 75 cents from the same time last year. It was also a blow to SKX stock by missing Wall Street’s earnings per share estimate of 72 cents for the quarter.

Operating income from the Skechers earnings report for the first quarter of the year was $169.50 million. The U.S. maker of shoes reported operating income of $148.80 million in the same period of the year prior.

The Skechers earnings report for the first quarter of 2019 also includes revenue of $1.28 billion. This is better than the company’s revenue of $1.25 billion reported in the first quarter of the previous year. However, it was bad news for SKX stock by coming in below analysts’ revenue estimate of $1.30 billion for the period.
