It was a mixed day for U.S. equities Monday, but most major indices managed to post slight gains as the dollar rose and gold gained 0.4%. The S&P 500 Index, Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq Composite wafted up 0.1% apiece.
Monday was relatively quiet from the earnings front, with Famous Dave’s of America, Inc. (NASDAQ:DAVE), Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd (NASDAQ:HOLI) and Remark Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:MARK) all reporting on their most recent periods.
Famous Dave’s of America, Inc. (DAVE)
Famous Dave’s beat earnings expectations, but its revenue fell.
The restaurant chain posted earnings at a loss of one cent per share during its third quarter of fiscal 2017, topping analysts’ expectations of a loss of five cents per share.
Revenue came in ahead of the mark as well at $21.9 million, compared to the Wall Street consensus estimate of $21.48 million. However, the figure fell 13.7% compared to the year-ago figure.
The decline in net restaurant sales revenue occurred due to 12 Famous Dave’s restaurants shuttering their doors over the last 12 months. Seven of these closed in the third quarter of 2017.
Franchise royalty and fee revenues fell, while comparable sales took a 2.1% dip year-over-year. Famous Dave’s saw its general and administrative expenses decline from $4.4 million to $3.8 million year-over-year.
