11:32 EDTCOHTiffany shines brighter as results beat expectations, company raises outlook
Shares of luxury retailer Tiffany (TIF) are moving higher after the company reported significantly stronger than expected second quarter results and raised its fiscal year 2015 earnings per share view. WHAT'S NEW: Tiffany's reported Q2 EPS of 96c on revenue of $993M, beating analysts' consensus estimates of 85c and $987.88M, respectively. Worldwide net sales increased 7% in Q2 and comparable store sales increased 3% in Q2 mainly due to growth in the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions. Looking ahead, the retailer increased its FY15 EPS view to $4.20-$4.30 from its previous view of $4.15-$4.25, which is in-line with analysts' $4.29 consensus. Tiffany anticipates worldwide net sales increasing by a high-single digit range and sees worldwide net sales increasing by a high-single-digit percentage for the year. The company also sees FY free cahs flow of at least $400M as well as capital expenditures of $270M. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During its conference call discussing the quarter, Tiffany said that it sees a "healthy" increase in its full-year operating margin. The luxury company noted that it experienced continued softness in its U.S. silver sales during Q2 as well as softness in U.S. entry-level sales under $500. In its Japan division, the retailer foresees returning to single-digit sales growth, but noted that the unit has not experienced that so far in the first few weeks of this month. In Europe, the retailer said it is "still feeling" the effect of economic and currency related obstacles. Tiffany sees opening 10 stores throughout the rest of the year, which is lower than its original plan of opening 13, and plans to close three stores this year compared to its original target of closing four. Tiffany also sees a double-digit percentage marketing spend increase in the second-half of this year. ANALYST REACTION: Sterne Agee analyst Ike Boruchow said that as Tiffany continues to surpass expectations in its earnings reports, fashion jewelry in general is growing again and the company's latest "T" collection should quicken that category further. He feels that regardless of the few headwinds in Japan and Europe, the luxury company is still one of the most stable retail firms. Boruchow believes that the CEO transition from Michael Kowalski to Frederic Cumenal is likely to be a "smooth" one in March. The analyst keeps the stock at a Buy rating with a $100.77 price target. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other high end retailers include Signet Jewelers (SIG), Blue Nile (NILE), Nordstrom (JWN), Michael Kors (KORS), and Coach (COH). PRICE ACTION: During late-morning trading, Tiffany rose $1.32 or 1.31%, to $102.09.

11:31 EDTFOSLMovado tumbles after second quarter results, outlook miss estimates
Shares of luxury watch maker Movado (MOV) are falling after the company's second quarter results and fiscal 2015 outlook missed analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Movado reported Q2 adjusted earnings per share of 44c and revenue of $143.6M, missing analysts' consensus estimates of 54c and $152.99M, respectively. Q2 gross profit was 54% of sales, compared to 54.1% of sales, in the prior year period. Gross margin percentage remained relatively flat as a result of the unfavorable impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, offset by the leverage gained on certain fixed costs due to increased sales. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Movado forecast FY15 EPS of $2.44, slightly short of the consensus of $2.46. FY15 revenue was seen at $640M, compared to consensus of $640.17M, while FY15 gross margin is expected to be approximately flat, year over year. Efraim Grinberg, Chairman and CEO, stated , "We anticipate our sales growth to accelerate during the second half of the year, as strong sell-through rates at retail are expected to drive new shipments and replenishment growth and we continue to benefit from the expansion of our Movado and licensed brands around the world. We will also continue to invest in our infrastructure and growth initiatives, including investments in Asia and Latin America. We continue to believe that our strategies have us positioned to achieve our goal of delivering sustainable profitable growth." PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Movado fell $3.08, or about 7%, to $40.96 on heavy trading volume. Despite today's pull back, the stock is up almost 8% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Movado's peer, Fossil Group (FOSL), is up 0.2% on the session.
