4 Discount Retailers Reporting Earnings This Week

4 Discount Retailers Reporting Earnings This Week - Big Lots, Inc. NYSE:BIG, Burlington Stores NYSE:BURL

Earnings season is coming to a close, and among the last few companies left to report are four discount retailers.

Investor expectations could be on the high end following positive results from retailers known for offering low prices versus their peers. For instance, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. WMT 0.15% reported its second-quarter results above Wall Street's expectations, and the company also boosted its full-year earnings per share outlook.

Similarly, the off-price retailer Ross Stores, Inc. ROST 0.94% reported a top- and bottom-line beat in its second-quarter earnings release last week.

Who Is On Deck?

Burlington Stores Inc BURL 0.32% (August 25) last reported its first quarter results on May 26. The company earned $0.57 per share on revenue of $1.3 billion — good for a nine-cent beat on the earnings line and a $30 million revenue beat.

Dollar General Corp. DG 0.06% (August 25) last reported its first-quarter results on May 26. The company earned $1.03 per share, a beat compared to the $0.95 per share analysts were expecting. Revenue of $5.26 billion, however, fell slightly short of the $5.28 billion analysts were expecting.

Dollar Tree, Inc. DLTR 0.2% (August 25) last reported its first-quarter results on May 26. The company also reported mixed results as it earned eight cents more than expected at $0.89 per share, but revenue of $5.09 billion fell short of expectations by $10 million.

Big Lots, Inc. BIG 0.28% (August 26) last reported its first-quarter results on May 27. The company earned $0.82 per share on revenue of $1.31 billion, which exceeded Wall Street's expectations of $0.70 per share on revenue of $1.3 billion.
