What Happened:

Shares of specialty flooring retailer Floor & Decor (NYSE:FND) fell 9.34% in the morning session after the company reported second-quarter earnings which missed analysts' revenue estimates. The company's full-year revenue, same-store sales, and adjusted EBITDA guidance were lowered and missed analysts' expectations. On the other hand, the company continued to open new store locations, which is supportive of revenue growth. Also, the company realized positive cash flow in the quarter. Overall, this was a mediocre quarter for Floor & Decor, but the investments in new stores should give investors reasons to be optimistic.
