Everett, Wash.-based Zumiez said it expects between breakeven results and a loss of 3 cents a share for the April-ending quarter. The current average estimate of analysts polled by
Thomson Reuters is for a profit of a penny per share in the period.
The stock was last quoted at $26.91, down 7%, on volume of around 25,000, according to Nasdaq.com. Based on a regular session close at $28.18, the shares are up nearly 36% in the past year but they haven't participated in the broad market's rally of the past three months as its 52-week high of $33.13 dates back to early December.
For its fiscal first quarter ended in January, Zumiez posted a profit of $15 million, or 49 cents a share, as sales grew 18% year-over-year to $156.2 million. The performance edged the consensus view for earnings of 48 cents a share on sales of $155.7 million.
