True Religion Stands Out Amid Retail Bloodbath

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- True Religion (TRLG) is running higher even as the rest of the retail sector retreats.

Despite concerns regarding the looming deadline for government to present a resolution to the debt-ceiling issue and weak GDP data, the premium denim retailer surged 13.1% to $33.59 in morning trading.

True Religion reported a 30% jump in its second-quarter profit, earning $9.4 million, or 38 cents per share, better than consensus estimates of 33 cents.

Revenue rose 20% to $98.3 million from $82.2 million, also ahead of forecasts of $91.6 million.

But overall, the S&P Retail Index dropped 0.4% to 536.15 Friday morning.

Vitamin Shoppe (VSI - Get Report) is one of the biggest decliners, plunging tk% to tk. While second-quarter profit and revenue both easily topped outlooks, costs rose 10.6%.
