Advance Auto eyes record daily percentage drop after forecast cut

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Advance Auto Parts’s stock was on track for its biggest daily percentage drop since the company went public in 2001 and drove a selloff in other auto parts retailers Thursday after the company cut its full-year forecast.

Advance Auto’s shares were last down 33.7% at $74.44, and hit their lowest level since March 2020.

Shares of Genuine Parts Co were down 5.3%, while Autozone was down 4.6% and O’Reilly Automotive slipped 3.4%.

Advance Auto cited elevated raw material, labor and freight costs as it reported results and gave its guidance. Its forecast cut follows a recent disappointing outlook from Foot Locker and underscores weakness in some areas of retail this earnings season.
