GAP(GPS.US) stock fell over 20.0% during today’s session after the apparel retailer posted disappointing quarterly figures in part due to supply chain issues. Company earned 27 cents per share, well below Wall Street estimates of 50 cents per share, while revenue fell to $3.94 billion from $3.99 billion in the year-ago quarter. Gap said it swung to a net loss of $152 million, or 40 cents per share, from net income of $95 million, or 25 cents a share, a year earlier. Company also lowered its full-year forecast. The apparel retailer has been hit by higher costs for shipping, as well as extended factory closures in Vietnam where it sources about 30% of its products.
