NEW YORK — Despite one-time charges that hurt the bottom line, The Jones Group Inc. had a good third quarter as conservative inventory planning and operating margin improvement boosted results.
Net income for the period attributable to Jones shareholders for the three months ended Sept. 29 dropped 57.6 percent to $17.4 million, or 22 cents a diluted share, from $41 million, or 49 cents, a year ago. Excluding one-time charges and other adjustments related to foreign currencies, the company said adjusted per-share profits were 57 cents versus 48 cents last year. That bested Wall Street’s adjusted expectations by 25 cents.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
