    The holidays weren't kind to many apparel companies, but Carter's (CRI +9.4%) easily beat its guidance and analyst views. Q4 core EPS surprisingly rose as weaker gross margins were offset by overhead rising less than revenue. Same-store sales grew ~7% for both the namesake and OshKosh chains, and CRI expects solid overall top-line gains for this year.
