Shares of Overstock.com traded as much as 19% lower on Monday after the company announced the resignation of its chief financial officer and issued a warning that full-year retail earnings could miss previously set targets. 
Robert Hughes, who spent nine years working in senior management roles at Overstock, will step-in as acting CFO. Greg Iverson resigned from the role on September 17. 
Overstock said its retail business is currently breaking even, but its full-year profit guidance relied on generating significant positive earnings in the third-quarter. The company cited increased costs from tariffs as a primary driver. 
The company’s former chief executive officer Patrick Byrne resigned from Overstock last August after making statements regarding the “Deep State,” which sent shares of Overstock tumbling.
