Canada Goose Holdings Inc. shares rose 1.8% in Thursday premarket trading after the luxury outerwear company reported fiscal second-quarter earnings that beat expectations. Net income totaled C$12.5 million, or 9 cents per share, down from C$58.0 million, or 55 cents per share last year. Adjusted EPS, in Canadian currency, of 10 cents per share, beat the FactSet consensus for 8 cents per share.
