TJX Cos. (TJX) Tuesday said it raised its full-year earnings per share outlook.
For the current fiscal year, ending Feb. 1, 2020, the Framingham, Mass.-based company now expects per-share earnings of $2.56 to $2.61, compared with its previous guidance of $2.55 to $2.60.
The parent of TJ Maxx and HomeGoods also is now guiding earnings per share to increase of 4% to 7% over the prior year's adjusted $2.45, which excluded a pension settlement charge. The company has previously expected earnings per share to increase 4% to 6%.
The guidance reflects the assumption of higher freight costs and store wage increases will negatively impact earnings per share growth by 3% to 4%. The estimated comparable store sales growth is of 2% to 3% on a consolidated basis and at Marmaxx, the company said.
For the second quarter, the company guided per-share earnings of 61 cents to 62 cents, compared with analysts' estimates of 62 cents a share. The company also estimated comparable store sales growth of 2% to 3% on a consolidated basis and at Marmaxx.
