Sprouts (SFM) Shares Skyrocket, What You Need To Know

What Happened: Shares of grocery store chain Sprouts Farmers Market (NASDAQ:SFM) jumped 7.8% in the morning session after the company reported fourth-quarter results that exceeded analysts' EPS forecasts despite posting revenue in line with expectations. The company's higher profitability was driven by its better-than-expected same-store sales growth (less capital-intensive incremental revenue) and lower-than-expected new store openings (capital-intensive incremental revenue). Furthermore, its same-store sales growth and earnings forecast for the full year exceeded Wall Street's forecasts. Overall, this was a good quarter that should please shareholders.
