NEW YORK -- Ruby Tuesday (RT) posted a fiscal second-quarter loss that was wider than analysts' expectations and said it plans to close up to 24 restaurant locations.
Ruby Tuesday said Wednesday it expects adjusted earnings for the 2013 fiscal year of 24 cents to 30 cents a share, below analysts' forecasts of 29 cents a share.
Sprint Nextel (S) is under no pressure to raise its $2 billion offer for Clearwire (CLWR) to beat a higher bid by Dish Network (DISH), Reuters reported, citing three sources close to the matter. Sprint believes it holds several trump cards it can play to thwart rival Dish, the sources said. Dish earlier this week offered to acquire Clearwire for $3.30 a share, or $5.15 billion, topping a bid from Sprint of $2.97 a share.
PriceSmart (PSMT) posted fiscal first-quarter sales and profit that topped analysts' views. The warehouse club company earned $20 million, or 66 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with year-earlier earnings of $14 million, or 47 cents a share. Revenue rose to $535.3 million from $477.5 million. Analysts expected profit of 62 cents a share on revenue of $535.4 million. 5 Stocks Insiders are Scooping Up
