Nordstrom brought its fiscal 2011 outlook down to a profit of between $2.80 and $2.95 a share because of costs related to Hautelook from a prior projection of $2.95 to $3.10 a share. The company also forecast a same-store sales increase of 2-4% for the year, a view that represents a decline from the 7.8% growth in comparable sales post in the first quarter.

The current average estimate of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters was for a profit of $3.13 a share for the fiscal year ending in January 2012.

Nordstrom said it expects Hautelook to produce revenue of between $160 million and $180 million for the year, and breakeven results. The company estimated the pre-tax expenses related to Hautelook will total $47 million, or 20 cents a share, for the year.

Shares of Eastman Kodak (EK) jumped more than 7% to $3.05 on volume of less than 500,000 after the company reportedly got a favorable decision in its patent dispute with Apple (AAPL - Get Report).
