07:02 EDTANFAbercrombie & Fitch downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at FBR Capital
FBR Capital downgraded Abercrombie & Fitch to Market Perform and maintained its $24 price target. The firm said store productivity could be pressured across segments as the brand image turnaround is a ways out and may require a new generation of consumers. FBR said sweeping cultural changes are positive but benefits will take time, there is potential for continued margin pressure from international, and the teen/young adult industry is in a multiyear transition.

10:23 EDTLULUAnalyst warns lululemon seeing increased competition in Canada
lululemon's (LULU) Canadian stores will probably be under pressure as new competitors have entered the company's core yoga apparel market there, research firm Macquarie warned in a note to investors earlier today. The firm highlighted one such competitor, Lole's Learning. WHAT'S NEW: Canada based Lole’s Learning and lululemon have similar products, similar prices, similar marketing events and similar store locations, Macquarie analyst Laurent Vasilescu reported. However, Lole's prices are "a tad more competitive," the analyst stated. Lole's started out as a wholesaler, but now has about 2,000 retail locations, many of which are within walking distance of lululemon stores, the analyst stated. Lole's has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 29% over the last five years, according to Vasilescu, who kept a $42 price target and Underperform rating on lululemon. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On June 9, lululemon reported slightly stronger than expected first quarter results and said that its U.S. stores were posting strong same-store sales trends in the initial weeks of Q2, while its Canadian stores were seeing positive Q2 comp trends. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, lululemon rose 1% to $68.29.
