True Religion Shares Popped: What You Need to Know


Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.

What: Shares of fashionista retailer True Religion (NAS: TRLG) soared [1] as much as 16% on a down day for the market after reporting second-quarter results that [2] blew away estimates.

So what: Revenue rose 20% to $98.3 million while profit soared 30% to $0.38 a share. Analysts had been looking for $91.5 million and $0.34 a share, respectively, marking the second consecutive quarter in which True Religion has made Wall Street look silly.
