10:49 EDTBKEAbercrombie & Fitch soars after reporting upbeat Q3 earnings
Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) shares jumped in morning trading after the company reported better than expected quarterly earnings. WHAT'S NEW: Before the market open, Abercrombie & Fitch reported third quarter adjusted earnings per share of 48c on revenue of $878.6M. The consensus was for EPS of 22c on revenue of $864.65M. The company said that the adjusted EPS figure included year-over-year adverse effects from changes in foreign currency exchange rates amounting to roughly 13c. Commenting on the earnings, executive chairman Arthur Martinez said that the company's results "exceeded" expectations and "provide the strongest validation yet" that the retailer's initiatives are working. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On its Q3 earnings conference call, Abercrombie said that it is eyeing expansion outside of the U.S., aiming to roll out multiple new capabilities in the U.K. The company added that it saw growth in China in the past quarter and plans to add mobile enhancements in China in 2016. STREET RESEARCH: A day before Abercrombie's Q3 earnings release, Susquehanna analyst Thomas Filandro said that the retailer was "well positioned" for the holiday season, though weather and international unrest may lead to a higher degree of near-term uncertainty. Filandro said that his firm sees improved holiday performance as Abercrombie shifts focus on an improved in-store experience, growing U.S. outlets, closing underperforming stores, and evolving its merchandise assortment. The analyst reiterated a Positive rating and a $26 price target on the company's stock. After the retailer reported earnings, KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma maintained an Overweight rating on Abercrombie's shares, saying that the company's better than expected quarter was "particularly impressive" in light of the recent weakness in the retail sector. Yruma said that the company's new brand initiatives are taking hold and that greater expense control and reduced promotional activity are improving the well-being of the business. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Abercrombie & Fitch rallied over 18% to $23.00. OTHERS TO WATCH: American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) was up just under 3%, Aeropostale (ARO) gained 0.75%, Tilly's (TLYS) rallied 3.4%, Urban Outfitters (URBN) jumped more than 4%, Buckle (BKE) was up just under 1%, and Express (EXPR) fell fractionally in morning trading.

12:02 EDTDLPHBorgWarner has de-risked set up into Detroit Auto Show, analyst says
Shares of BorgWarner (BWA), a global automotive industry components and parts supplier, are gaining after Goldman Sachs analyst Patrick Archambault upgraded the company to Buy from Neutral citing the 35% pullback in shares since the March 3 peak and improving China sales. WHAT'S NEW: Archambault, who maintained a $54 price target on BorgWarner shares, said in a note to investors that the auto parts maker has de-risked the set up into the Detroit Auto Show in January in the wake of its recent guide down for 2015 and pull forward of backlog cut announcement. The company may get to mid-to-high single digit growth even with a backlog cut and improving China sales "may even point to some upside," the analyst continued. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On November 10, BorgWarner finalized its acquisition of Remy International, a manufacturer of rotating electrical components such as alternators, starter motors and electric traction motors for the automotive and commercial vehicle industry. "With this acquisition, the complementary combination of technologies and global operations will strengthen BorgWarner's product leadership position," said BorgWarner President and Chief Executive Officer James Verrier. On October 30, RBC Capital downgraded BorgWarner to Sector Perform from Outperform with a $45 price target on shares. Analyst Joseph Spak said BorgWarner's story is transitioning from a growth story to GARP as it enters a mid-single digit growth phase, and expects the shareholder base will likely churn and credibility has to be rebuilt. PRICE ACTION: Shares of BorgWarner are advancing 4.79%, or $1.94, to $42.55 in midday trading. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the space including Lear (LEA), Delphi Automotive (DLPH) and Magna International (MGA) are trading higher in midday trading.
