NEW YORK — J.C. Penney Co. Inc. is bucking the trend.
Based, in part, on stronger-than-expected comparable-store sales in its department stores, the retailer said its third-quarter operating earnings would exceed 21 cents per share. Wall Street had been looking for 19 cents. The firm’s Eckerd drugstore chain has also seen continued improvement in operating profits.
