20:06 EDTURBNUrban Outfitters shares fall after reporting mixed Q2 results
After the close, Urban Outfitters (URBN) reported second quarter earnings. WHAT'S NEW: Urban Outfitters reported Q2 earnings per share of 52c, above consensus estimates of 49c, and Q2 revenue of $867.46M, below analyst expectations of $881.16M. Urban Outfitters reported comparable retail segment net sales up 4%. Broken down by segment, comparable retail sales at Anthropologie increased 2%, Urban Outfitters increased 4%, Free People increased 14%, and wholesale segment net sales increases 21%. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During the earning conference call, CFO Frank Conforti said that during the third quarter, the gross margin rate could increase, driven by improvements in the Urban Outfitters brand. Conforti also said that the opportunity exists to increase gross margins for the fiscal year, though the magnitude of the increase depends on Q3 and Q4. Conforti also reaffirmed the company's fiscal 2016 capital expenditures guidance of $140M-$150M. ANALYST REACTION: On August 17, Wolfe Research initiated coverage of the stock with a Peer Perform and set a price target of $34.00. The firm said it believes that Urban Outfitters could see improving SSS trends in the second half of fiscal 2015 and said that the Urban Outfitters brand has showed "considerable improvement" and the firm estimates that the brand's gross margins could be in the high 20% range. After Urban Outfitters earnings were released, Nomura released a note indicating that the magnitude of the gross margin decline was "not as bad as expected" with Urban's Q2 gross margin of 36.7% vs. Nomura's estimate of 36.2%, and that shares have been discounting an additional cut to annual gross margins. The firm has a Neutral rating on the stock and a price target of $35.00. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Urban Outfitters are lower by 2.26% to $31.50 in after-hours trading.
