Gary Friedman, CEO of Restoration Hardware, said this about RH share income:

While revenue for the fourth quarter of $ 665.0 million was lower than forecast, the adjusted earnings per share of $ 3.72 for the fourth quarter exceeded expectations for the 13th consecutive quarter as we continue to operate with a bias for earnings against revenue. Adjusted operating margins reached a record 17.4% during the fourth quarter, an increase of 230 points compared to 15.1% last year. ”

The Restoration Hardware earnings report does not include a forecast for the fiscal year 2020. Like many other companies, RH is withholding its outlook due to the effects of corona from China.

The RH share fell 10.42% after the markets closed on Monday. The stock closed the day up 6.10%.
