11:45 EDTCOH, KORSJefferies sees further risk for Michael Kors despite recent decline
Michael Kors' (KORS) margin pressures and slowing same-store sales growth, along with high expectations for the company, are reasons to be cautious on the stock, research firm Jefferies wrote in a note to investors today. The firm cut its price target on the luxury accessories retailer to $80 from $95. WHAT'S NEW: Michael Kors' same-store sales are slowing, while the company's gross margins are coming under pressure due to increased discounts of its products and its roll out of new stores, Jefferies analyst Randal Konik wrote. Additionally, investors' high expectations for the company will make it difficult for the stock to appreciate even if its results beat expectations, the analyst stated. Even with shares pulling back over the past few days, Konik says risk remains skewed to the downside and kept a Hold rating on the stock. Of note, this is the second time in two weeks that Jefferies cut its estimates for the company. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Expressing a very different outlook yesterday on Michael Kors was Credit Suisse analyst Christian Buss. Michael Kors is "one of the least discounted brands available during the seasonal clearance period ahead of early fall shipments" according to Buss, who wrote that he was "compelled" by the recent decline in the stock. The analyst reiterated a $107 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: The company's competitors include Kate Spade (KATE) and Coach (COH). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Michael Kors was nearly flat near $82 per share.

13:14 EDTKORS, COHMichael Kors rises after analyst sees less discounting than peers
Shares of accessories designer Michael Kors (KORS) are slightly higher in a down market after Credit Suisse said that the company's brands are less likely to be on sale than those of its competitors. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors, Credit Suisse analyst Christian Buss wrote that Michael Kors' products are "one of the least discounted brands available during the seasonal clearance period ahead of early fall shipments." At mid-tier department stores, 25% of Michael Kors' products are on sale with an average markdown of 27%, Buss reported. On average, 35% of the products of the company's peers are on sale, at an average discount of 27%, the analyst stated. Additionally, Michael Kors' channel strategy provides it with multiple advantages, including brand integrity and limits on markdowns, Buss believes. Buss wrote that he was "compelled" by the recent drop in the stock, and reiterated a $107 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Also upbeat on Michael Kors today was research firm Canaccord. Markdowns of the company's products are not any larger than last year, and concerns about large discounts on its products have created a buying opportunity, the firm contended. Canaccord continues to believe that the accessories maker has strong long-term growth opportunities, and it kept a $123 price target and Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Michael Kors gained 2% to $83. Two of the company's competitors, Coach (COH) and Kate Spade (KATE), rose fractionally.
