    • Shares of J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP) reached as high as $7.90 in AH trading after the company topped the holiday same-store sales estimates of analysts.
    • The stock hasn't traded over $8 since early December as short interest built up ahead of the holiday report.
    • Per the norm, bulls and bears are battling it out on JCP. Bulls are lauding management for turning the retailer solidly in the right direction, while bears such as Imperial Capital's Mary Ross Gilbert claim margin-crunching promotions drove the sales gain.
    • What to watch: JCP's free cash flow mark at the end of Q4 will be closely-analyzed.
    • Sector fallout: Belus Capital's Brian Sozzi thinks the JCP result indicates other department store chains (JWN, KSS, DDS, M) are also poised to best consensus holiday SSS estimates.
    • Previous on JCP: Sterne Agee warns, holiday sales report.

    • Q3 earnings of $142M or $0.73 per share vs. $137M and $0.69 one year ago.
    • Total comp sales growth of 3.9%; Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) comp sales growth of 3.4%.
    • Full-year EPS outlook lowered to $3.70-$3.75 from $3.80-$3.90, with part of that due to the Trunk Club acquisition that's expected to cut EPS by about 3% this fiscal year. The net sales outlook is expected to be at the top end of the previously guided 6.5-7.5% range. Comp sales are expected right in the middle of the earlier 3-4% range.

    • Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) -3.2% AH after reporting generally in-line Q2 results, as sales at stores open at least a year rose 2.7% Y/Y but missed the 3.1% growth analysts had estimated; full-line department store sales fell 1.2% vs. projections for growth of 1.2%.
    • JWN says it expects the planned $350M acquisition of men's clothing service Trunk Club will dilute EPS for the next several years as the result of share issuance and other impacts; estimates the acquisition will reduce FY 2014 earnings by 3%-5%.
    • At JWN's discount Rack unit, net sales grew 18%, reflecting increased volume and contributions from new stores, while same-store sales gained 4%.
    • Raises the lower end of FY 2014 guidance and now sees EPS of $3.80-$3.90 on sales growth of 6.5%-7.5% vs. previous guidance of $3.75-$3.90 EPS on sales growth of 5.5%-7.5%.
