CINCINNATI (AP) — Macy's is putting up its sixth consecutive quarter of rising comparable store sales thanks in part to another doubling of online sales.
The Cincinnati department store on Wednesday reported a first quarter profit of $136 million, or 44 cents per share. That far exceeds Wall Street's per-share expectations of 31 cents, according to a survey by Zacks Investment Research.
Revenue was $5.5 billion, just shy of expectations.
Macy's stuck to its full-year earnings projections of between $3.05 and $3.25 per share, about in line with expectations.
