12:54 EDTJCPEarnings Watch: J.C. Penney sees Q1 SSS up 3.5%-4.5%
J.C. Penney (JCP) is scheduled to report first quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, May 13, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. J.C. Penney operates about 1,100 retail stores and jcp.com. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for a loss per share of (77c) on revenue of $2.87B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is (96c)-(61c) on revenue of $2.78B-$2.92B. LAST QUARTER: J.C. Penney reported fourth adjusted earnings per share of breakeven against estimates for 11c, on revenue of $3.89B against estimates for $3.87B. Comparable store sales were up 4.4%. The company forecast fiscal year 2015 SSS up 3%-5% and said it expected gross margin to improve 50 to 100 basis points versus 2014 and free cash flow to be flat. On its Q4 earnings conference call, the company said that it expected Q1 sales to be impacted less than 1% due to the West Coast port slowdown. NEWS: On March 17, AdAge said Chief Marketing Officer Debra Berman would leave the company immediately. Later that day, Bloomberg reported that General Cousnel Janet Dhillon would also leave the company, which was confirmed by J.C. Penney on March 20. On April 28, J.C. Penney appointed Mary Beth West as executive vice president and Chief Customer & Marketing Officer, effective June 1. In an April regulatory filing, J.C. Penney said it became aware that a senior company official "inadvertently sent an e-mail communication to a securities analyst that contained non-public information regarding the company’s comparable store sales results for Q1 to date, which are approximately 6%." The company said it expects Q1 SSS up 3.5%-4.5%, which takes into account the shift of Easter into March. The retailer said it would introduce Sephora to 25 additional stores starting on May 1. In April, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman sent letters warning J.C. Penney and other retailers that he believes the chains are using on-call scheduling and that such practices may be in violation of New York laws. STREET RESEARCH: Following the release of J.C. Penney's Q4 results, Deutsche Bank said J.C. Penney remained a "show me story" until liquidity is improved. Craig-Hallum said J.C. Penney's 2015 gross margin outlook supports its view the company's 2017 financial targets are "unattainable." In March, JPMorgan raised its price target for the retailer to $10 from $8 and said management expressed confidence in the company’s ability to reach its 2017 EBITDA target of $1.2B. Baird said J.C. Penney's business is on "more stable footing," but believes meaningful free cash flow growth will be challenging. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, J.C. Penney shares are up over 7.45%. In early afternoon trading ahead of Wednesday's Q1 report, J. C. Penney is down 2.5% to $8.66.

07:42 EDTJDAlibaba monetization has bottomed, price target to $137 at Nomura
Nomura believes Alibaba's (BABA) monetization is at an inflection point and that the company will see significant revenue upside in the next 3-5 years. The firm's checks indicate gross merchandise volume is recovering in both Taobao and Tmail and it expects Tmail to gain market share from JD.com (JD) again. Nomura believes Alibaba will have better terms of mobile monetization compared to Baidu (BIDU), since mobile landing page quality is less of an issue and e-commerce ads likely have higher click-through rates.
