Vitamin Shoppe's (VSI -8%) management is taking "a more cautious view on the year" after saying variability in YTD sales performance and weaker than expected sales in April should translate to comps growth in the "low-to-mid single digits." That's a downward revision from previous guidance. Comps growth was 4.5% in Q1, down markedly from 9.6% in Q1 2012 and off by 0.7% sequentially. VSI does note on the call however, that 2012 Q1 comps benefited from "higher whey protein inflation." (PR, transcript)

    I wonder how much the absence of Jack3D without DMAA in it was influencing sales. I didn't see or hear any reference to it.
