    Discount retailer Family Dollar Stores, Inc. (FDO) reporter lower second quarter earnings on Thursday, which came in below analysts' estimates.  FDO's Earnings in  Brief
    • FDO posted Q2 earnings of $90.9 million, or 80 cents per share, down from $140.1 million, or $1.21 per share, a year ago. 
    • Revenue slid to $2.7 billion from $2.9 billion last year.

    CEO Commentary Howard R. Levine, Chairman and CEO commented: “Our second quarter results did not meet our expectations. The 2013 holiday season was challenged by a more promotional competitive environment and a more financially constrained consumer. In addition, like many retailers, our second quarter results were significantly impacted by severe winter weather, which resulted in numerous store closings, disrupted merchandise deliveries and higher than expected utility and store maintenance expenses.” FDO's Dividend FDO will pay its next dividend of 31 cents on April 15. We expect the company to declare its next dividend in June. Stock Perfromance Family Dollar Stores shares were down $1.82, or 3.08% during pre-market trading Thursday.
