Recasts throughout with shares, estimates

Oct 8 (Reuters)Domino’s Pizza Inc DPZ.N reported a smaller-than-expected profit on Thursday, as high COVID-19-related costs and staff bonuses offset a jump in demand for pizzas during the coronavirus crisis.

Shares of the Ann Arbor, Michigan-based company, which have risen about 47% this year, were down about 5% before the bell.

The world’s largest pizza chain has thrived during the health crisis as diners staying at home craved more comfort food, but that came at a cost for the company, which spent millions on hiring more staff, bonuses, sick-pay policies and sanitary supplies.

Still, sales at Domino’s U.S. stores open for more than a year rose 17.5% in the third quarter ended Sept. 6, exceeding Wall Street estimates of 13.14%, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

Rite Aid  (RAD) – Get Report shares dropped more than 13% on Thursday, even as the company posted stronger-than-expected fiscal second-quarter sales and provided upbeat guidance on expectations that consumers will continue to rely on the pharmacy chain for prescriptions and other essentials amid the ongoing pandemic.

Rite Aid said adjusted net income from continuing operations rose to $13.5 million, or 25 cents a share, vs. a loss of $78.7 million, or $1.48 a share, in the comparable year-ago quarter. Analysts polled by FactSet had been expecting earnings of 1 cent a share.

Sales were $5.98 billion, up 11% year over year and well above analysts’ estimates of $5.75 billion.

Rite Aid said the net-loss improvement was due “primarily to an increase in adjusted earnings before income, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA)” as well as a drop in income tax and interest costs and a “last in, first

Adds details from release, background

Sept 8 (Reuters)Lululemon Athletica Inc LULU.O beat quarterly revenue estimates on Tuesday, boosted by a surge in online sales of yoga pants and other athleisure apparel to consumers spending more time at home.

A shift to remote working and at-home exercise around the globe due to the COVID-19 pandemic has increased demand for comfortable athletic clothing.

Lululemon said its direct-to-consumer business, which includes its online platform, rose 155% in the quarter.

The yogawear maker acquired at-home fitness company Mirror for $500 million in the reported quarter as it looks to diversify from apparel and capitalize on the booming demand for home workout classes spurred by coronavirus lockdowns.

Net revenue rose 2.1% to $902.9 million in the second quarter ended Aug. 2, compared with estimates of $842.5 million, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

The company reported a net income of $86.8 million,

Filtration is a pretty good business to be in – there have been several high-multiple acquisitions in the space over the years (often at mid-to-high teens multiples of EBITDA), with companies including Danaher (DHR), 3M (MMM), and Parker Hannifin (PH) among those that have paid up to get into the space.

For Donaldson (DCI), it’s been a cyclical business, but one that has generated healthy double-digit returns on capital for over a decade and annualized high-single-digit FCF growth for over 20 years. And now Donaldson is looking to address even more of the market, with targeted expansion into areas like food & beverage, specialty chemicals, and pharma that offer both higher growth rates and less cyclical growth than the core engine filtration business.

I like Donaldson quite a bit, but the valuation has rarely been all that attractive to me. With the Street unimpressed with the last quarter and selling

(Bloomberg) — Gap Inc. tempered the pace of its revenue decline in the second quarter and beat analysts’ sales estimates. The shares rose in extended trading.

Sales for the period, which ended Aug. 1, were $3.3 billion, higher than analysts’ projection of $2.9 billion and down just 18% year on year. The company, which owns the Old Navy and Banana Republic brands, said comparable-store sales rose 13%, but said this excludes days that stores were closed in the quarter. For that reason, the measure doesn’t line up directly with market estimates.

Key Insights

E-commerce performed well, with growth of 95% from a year earlier. CEO Sonia Syngal said this shows the company can “pivot to a digitally-led culture.”Among Gap’s brands, all posted positive comparable-store sales for the period that they were open, except for Banana Republic. That chain — which specializes in trendy, workplace attire — faces the biggest challenge
