Kohl's Corporation reported sales results for the month of November and December 2016. The company reported that its comparable sales decreased 2.1% in the fiscal months of November and December 2016 combined, compared with the prior year period. Total sales for the combined fiscal November and December period decreased 2.7%. From a line of business perspective, Men’s, Home and Footwear were the strongest categories while Accessories was the most challenging. On a regional basis, the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast were the best performing regions. The company now expects its fiscal 2016 diluted earnings per share to be $2.92 to $2.97 versus its previous guidance of $3.12 to $3.32 per diluted share. Excluding impairments, store closing and other costs, fiscal 2016 diluted earnings per share is expected to be $3.60 to $3.65, down from the Company’s previously stated guidance of $3.80 to $4.00 per diluted share. The change in guidance is primarily a result of lower than planned sales for the quarter.

Inventories per store at the end of the fourth quarter are projected to decrease from prior year levels in the mid-to-high single digit range.
