Urban Outfitters Earnings: URBN Stock Falls 5% on Q4 EPS Miss


Urban Outfitters (NASDAQ:URBN) earnings for the company’s fiscal fourth quarter of 2019 have URBN stock falling after-hours Tuesday. This comes after reporting adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of 50 cents. That doesn’t stack up well next to Wall Street’s estimate of 63 cents per share. However, the company’s revenue of $1.17 billion does match analysts’ estimates for the period.

Richard A. Hayne, CEO of Urban Outfitters, said this about the URBN stock earnings report:

“I am pleased to announce record fourth quarter sales driven by a 4% Retail segment ‘comp’. Positive customer reaction to our early spring assortments bode well for continued ‘comp’ growth in the first quarter.”

The Urban Outfitters earnings report doesn’t include an outlook for the fiscal full year of 2020. Even so, we know what Wall Street is looking for. Analysts are estimating adjusted EPS of $2.28 on revenue of $4.14 billion for the year.

URBN stock was down 5.02% after-hours Tuesday.
