10:36 EDTAEO, URBN, ANF, ARO, APP, GPSAmerican Eagle, Urban Outfitters fall after earnings reports
Shares of mall-based clothing retailers American Eagle (AEO) and Urban Outfitters (URBN) are sliding after the both companies reported fourth quarter earnings per share that beat analysts' expectations but also sounded cautious notes about the current quarter. WHAT'S NEW: American Eagle reported fourth quarter adjusted earnings per share of 27c which narrowly beat analysts' consensus estimate of 26c. The company's revenue of $1.04B also edged out the consensus estimate of $1.03B, though American Eagle reported fourth quarter same-store-sales fell 7% from last year. The company said it expects its Q1 EPS to breakeven compared to adjusted EPS of 18c last year based on a high single-digit decline in comparable sales and added that "Business conditions remain challenging, with severe winter weather contributing to weak demand." Retail rival Urban Outfitters reported fourth quarter earnings per share of 59c, beating analysts' estimate of 55c, on revenue of $905.9M, which fell below the expectation of $927.86M. The company said comparable retail segment net sales, which include comparable direct-to-consumer channel, increased 1%. Urban Outfitters' CEO said the company will remain "very cautious" about its upcoming first quarter performance due to continued challenges. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During its fourth quarter earnings conference call, American Eagle said business has remained highly competitive and sales trends have been choppy so far this year, though added that it was encouraged by what it saw in the first few weeks of January. The company also noted that its search for a new CEO is under way. OTHERS TO WATCH: Retail rivals to both American Eagle and Urban Outfitters include Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), Aeropostale (ARO), American Apparel (APP) and Gap (GPS). PRICE ACTION: During morning trading, shares of American Eagle fell 6.2% to $13.33, while Urban Outfitters was down 4.9% to $35.68.
