The apparel retailer's earnings call started off well as it reported earnings of $2.03 per share, excluding certain items for the company's fiscal fourth quarter of 2016.

However, revenue was slightly underwhelming as L Brands raked in $4.49 billion over the course of its holiday period.

The ex-dividend date was Thursday, November 17th. L Brands' guidance, however, left something to be desired. This was impacted by different factors, such as a pre-tax gain of $108.3 million related to a cash distribution from Easton Town Center, and a pre-tax charge of $35.8 million related to the early extinguishment of the company's July 2017 notes. Citigroup Inc. upgraded shares of L Brands from a neutral rating to a buy rating and increased their price target for the stock from $74.00 to $84.00 in a research note on Monday, November 14th.

Many research firms have provided their ratings on L Brands, Inc. The transaction was disclosed in a legal filing with the SEC, which is available through this link. Quadrant Capital Group LLC now owns 2,365 shares of the company's stock valued at $161,000 after buying an additional 139 shares during the last quarter. The Company franchises restaurants under its Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins brands.

Looking ahead, the company expects the exit of these categories at Victoria's Secret, continued investment in China and investment in real estate at Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works to continue taking their toll.
