Costco's January sales dip, foresees weak Q2
Costco Wholesale (Nasdaq: COST) reported a 2 percent drop in same-store sales for the month of January. It added that its second-quarter earnings per share will be substantially lower than the consensus estimate.

Costco now expects earnings for its fiscal second quarter to miss a $0.70-per-share estimate, but it did not provide more specifics.
It also said it will not provide earnings guidance for the rest of the fiscal year.
