11:07 EDTKORS, FOSLVera Bradley surges on better-than-expected Q2 earnings, upbeat FY16 view
Shares of Vera Bradley (VRA) surged in morning trading after the company reported better-than-expected second quarter results and raised its outlook for fiscal year 2016. Vera Bradley is a designer of women's handbags, accessories, luggage and travel items and eyewear. WHAT'S NEW: Vera Bradley reported Q2 earnings per share from continuing operations of 15c on revenue of $120.7M, beating analysts' expectations of 11c and $114.99M, respectively. Same-store sales decreased 15% for the quarter, though Robert Wallstrom, the company's chief executive officer, said that the company's comparable sales trend began to improve toward the end of the quarter due to new product offerings, improved in-store execution and initial marketing efforts. Looking ahead, Vera Bradley forecast third quarter EPS from continuing operations of 19c-21c on revenue of $120M-$123M, against analysts' consensus estimates of 15c and $117.2M, respectively. Wallstrom said that the company's turnaround will take time, but noted "meaningful progress" being made, and that Vera Bradley is "confident" in its long-term strategic plan. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Vera Bradley raised its FY16 continuing operations EPS view to 72c-82c from 64c-74c, higher than analysts' expectations of 66c. Additionally, the company's FY16 revenue view was narrowed to $487M-$495M from $480M-$495M, still ahead of analysts' consensus estimates of $481.57M. On its Q2 earnings conference call, Vera Bradley forecast sees Q3 and FY16 same-store sales down in the low double-digit percentage range. The company added that it eliminated hyperpromotions and pared back promotional days in Q2 and noted that it is seeing "green shoots" from its turnaround efforts. Vera Bradley said it sees a decline in hyperpromotional activity in FY16. PRICE ACTION: Vera Bradley shares are up 23.49% to $12.88 in morning trading. OTHERS TO WATCH: Vera Bradley peers include Coach (COH), down 0.54%, Michael Kors (KORS), up 1.92%, and Fossil Group (FOSL), up 0.64%.
