Stanley Furniture (STLY) fell after the company missed the consensus first-quarter earnings estimate. The company earned $5.4 million, or 43 cents a share, compared with $5.8 million and 43 cents a share last year. Revenue totaled $83.5 million, up from $83 million a year ago.

Analysts were looking for earnings of 45 cents on revenue of $82.6 million. For the quarter ending July 1, net sales are expected to be in the range of $79.5 million to $82 million, a decrease of 2% to 5% from a year ago. Stanley projected earnings of 35 cents to 38 cents a share, down from 44 cents last year.

For the full year, sales should be $335 million to $345 million, up 0.4% to 3.4% from 2005, Stanley said. Earnings will probably be in the range of $1.78 to $1.84, compared with $1.77 for last year. Shares sank $1.96, or 7%, to $26.14.
