That implies adjusted diluted EPS of $3.38 to $3.54, which is in line with forecasts by analysts.

Hudson's Bay Co. (TSX:HBC). Retailer. Down $1.19, or 5.95 per cent, at $18.80 on 1.01 million shares.

Overall retail sales rose by 5.8 per cent to $984.1 million, boosted by strong sales across various departments and over e-commerce.
