    • Tractor Supply (TSCO) had Q2 sales of $1.58B (+8.8% Y/Y), below a $1.6B consensus. The company expects Q2 EPS of $0.94-$0.95, below a $1.02 consensus. Gross margin is expected to be flat Y/Y.
    • Moreover, Tractor Supply now forecasts full-year revenue, EPS, and same-store sales will be at the low end of prior guidance ranges of $5.62B-$5.7B, $2.54-$2.62, and 2.5%-4%. Revenue and EPS consensus are at $5.67B and $2.62.
    • Same-store sales rose 1.9% Y/Y in Q2, down from 2.2% in Q1 and 7.2% a year ago. Solid traffic and strong sales of consumable, usable, and edible products was partly offset by weak sales of seasonal products (mostly in Northern regions), ongoing softness in TSCO's safe category, and deflation.
    • Full Q2 results arrive on July 23.

    More on Tractor Supply (TSCO): Q1 results in-line, but same-store sales (+0.5%) faced a tough compare, as last year's Q1 was helped by an estimated $38M sales benefit from early spring weather. Gross margins fall to 32.4% from 32.6% due to a "continued mix shift to lower-margin C.U.E. products." Outlook: FY2013 EPS of between $4.32-4.40 on revenues of between $5.07-5.17B. Analysts see $4.44 on $5.16B. Shares -6.5% AH. (PR)
