    Looks like the unfavorable foreign currency rates are putting a hurt on their guidance. Won't be an issue for ROST though:

    Full Year and First Quarter Fiscal 2016 Outlook

    For the fiscal year ending January 30, 2016, the Company expects diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $3.17 to $3.25 versus $3.15 in Fiscal 2015. Excluding the $.01 debt extinguishment charge in Fiscal 2015 referred to above, this guidance would represent a 0% to 3% increase over the adjusted $3.16 in Fiscal 2015. This guidance reflects an assumption that currency could have a 5% negative impact on EPS growth, including 3% due to the impact of the dramatic change in foreign currency exchange rates on translation and mark-to-market adjustments (described above) and 2% from the effect of currency on merchandise margins at the Company’s international divisions. The Company is also assuming that the combination of its investments in Associates, incremental investments to support its growth, and pension costs will negatively impact EPS growth by an additional 4%. This EPS outlook is based upon estimated consolidated comparable store sales growth of 1% to 2%, consistent with the Company’s plans in prior years. Again, the Company is reiterating its 10% to 13% long-term annual EPS growth model.

    For the first quarter of Fiscal 2016, the Company expects diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $.64 to $.66, which would represent a 0% to 3% increase over last year’s $.64 per share. This guidance reflects an assumption that currency could have a 4% negative impact on EPS growth, including 3% due to the impact of the dramatic change in foreign currency exchange rates on translation and mark-to-market adjustments (described above) and 1% from the effect of currency on merchandise margins at the Company’s international divisions. The Company also expects the combination of incremental investments to support its growth, employee payroll and pension costs to negatively impact EPS growth
