Tonya Garcia

Domino's Pizza Inc. shares fell 5.7% in Tuesday premarket trading after the pizza-delivery chain reported second-quarter revenue that missed expectations. Net income totaled $92.4 million, or $2.19 per share, up from $77.4 million, or $1.78 per share, last year. Revenue of $811.6 million was up from $779.4 million last year. The FactSet consensus was for EPS of $2.02 and revenue of $837.0 million. The company said there was a decline in U.S. company-owned revenue due to the previously-announced sale of 59 locations to U.S. franchisees. U.S. company-owned same-store sales grew 2.1%, below the FactSet guidance for 3.3% growth. And U.S. franchise store same-store sales were up 3.1%, also below the 4.7% FactSet guidance. International stores experienced a 2.4% same-store sales increase, excluding the impact of foreign currency. Domino's shares have climbed 8.8% for the year to date while the S&P 500 index is up 20.2% for the period.
