The Foothill Ranch company reiterated its earnings estimate of 33 cents a share for the second quarter, up 22% from the same period last year.
Estimates for full-year earnings per share remain at 98 cents a share, an increase of 34% from 2000.
Oakley's stock rose $1.55 to close at $21.45 on the NYSE.
