According to First Call, analysts expected a profit of 37 cents a share and revenue of $211.6 million.

"Our 20% increase in net income reflects both an improving comp store sales trend and an increase in gross margin," said Seth Johnson, chief executive officer. For the fourth quarter, the teen-apparel retailer forecasts earnings of 62 cents to 63 cents a share, in line with Wall Street expectations. The stock was down 31 cents, or 1.1%, to $27.32 in after-hours trading.
