Shares of Vans and The North Face parent VF Corp. /zigman2/quotes/206706147/composite VFC +0.83% tumbled 7.1% in premarket trading Friday, after the apparel, footwear and accessories company reported fiscal fourth-quarter earnings that missed expectations, as the COVID-19 pandemic reduced consumer demand.
