Ross Stores (NASDAQ:ROST) shares rose more than 8% pre-market today after the company reported first-quarter earnings per share (EPS) of $1.46, surpassing the analyst consensus of $1.35. The discount retailer's revenue climbed to $4.86 billion, slightly above the $4.83 billion estimate and marking an 8% increase from $4.5 billion in the same quarter last year. Comparable store sales rose by a healthy 3%.

CEO Barbara Rentler attributed the strong earnings to lower expenses and effective navigation of macroeconomic challenges affecting customer spending.
