Shauna O'Brien Mar 06, 2015



Inside FL’s Results


FL reported earnings of $146 million, or $1.01 per share, up from $121 million, or 81 cents per share, last year. Excluding special items, earnings were $1.00, above analysts’ view of 91 cents.

For 2014, net income was $520 million, or $3.56 per share, from $429 million, or $2.85 per share.

Revenue
Revenue increased 6.7% to $1.91 billion from $1.79 billion last year. Analysts expected to see revenue of $1.87 billion.

For the year, sales rose 9.9% to $7.151 billion.


Sales Are Surging, But There Are Concerns


Although profits are growing, FL has seen increased competition from companies like Nike (NKE), as well as department stores like Macy’s (M). Sales growth is expected to remain in the mid-single digit range, but the strengthening dollar will continue to be a headwind.
