10:39 EDTTLYS, APP, AEO, ANF, GPSAbercrombie & Fitch rallies after raising full year profit view
Shares of casual apparel retailer Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) are rallying after the company raised its full year adjusted profit view. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Abercrombie & Fitch reported its fourth quarter comparable sales for the nine weeks ended January 4, including direct-to-consumer sales, decreased 6%. However, based on higher than expected sales for the fourth quarter-to-date, and ongoing cost reduction efforts, the company raised its full year adjusted earnings per share view to $1.55-$1.65 from its prior guidance of $1.40-$1.50. The consensus forecast of analysts prior to the company update was $1.47. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was positive on A&F. Research firm Janney Capital upgraded Abercrombie to Buy from Neutral with a price target of $49. Another firm, Wells Fargo, increased its price target on the stock to $37-$39 from $33-$36, but kept a Market Perform rating on the shares. Brean Capital said it remained a buyer of Abercrombie & Fitch’s shares. Brean rates the shares a Buy with a $48 price target. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Abercrombie & Fitch rose $3.86, or 11.6%, to $37.07 on twice its average daily trading volume. However, over the past twelve months, the shares are down about 24%. OTHERS TO WATCH: Abercrombie’s competitors include American Eagle Outfitters (AEO), American Apparel (APP), and Tilly’s (TLYS). Another Abercrombie competitor, The Gap (GPS), reported last night that its comparable sales in the months of November and December grew 1% and that, given the holiday performance, the company is "comfortable" delivering at the high end of its prior full-year earnings per share guidance range. Gap shares are up 0.8% to $39.75 after its own holiday sales update.
