Guess Drops on Weak Guidance
Shares of Guess (NYSE: GES) are down 6.3 percent to $28.83 after beating fourth quarter analyst estimates. The drop can be attributed to weak guidance.

Guess sees a first quarter loss of $0.05 to $0.09 versus a gain of $0.11 analyst estimates.
The company raised the quarterly dividend from $0.20 to $0.225 per share.
Paul Marciano, Chief Executive Officer, said the company will stay “focused on what [Guess] can control, like inventory where trends continued to improve quarter over quarter, and expenses which declined again in the fourth quarter versus last year.”
