16:46 EDTDLADelta Apparel reports Q3 EPS 27c, consensus 62c
Reports Q3 revenue $123.5M, consensus $138.25M. Robert Humphreys, Delta Apparel Chairman and CEO, commented, "Many apparel retailers and small to mid-sized brands have been affected, as weak market conditions persist across most sales channels and tiers of distribution. This pervasive weakness is an unusual condition we have not seen in recent history, and there is no certainty when there will be a reversal of these trends. As such, it is imperative that we adjust the fixed cost structure within Delta Apparel to give us the ability to operate profitably in the current retail environment. Beyond that, when conditions improve, as we expect they will, we anticipate that incremental sales growth will be reflected to a much greater degree in our bottom line.

11:31 EDTDLAHanesbrands plummets after cutting FY15 revenue outlook
Shares of apparel maker Hanesbrands (HBI) are sinking after the company lowered its fiscal 2015 revenue outlook. WHAT'S NEW: After the close on Thursday, HanesBrands reported second quarter adjusted earnings per share of 50c, in line with analysts' consensus estimates, on revenue of $1.52B, slightly missing consensus estimates for $1.56B. Net sales excluding foreign currency fluctuations and the acquisitions of DBApparel and Knights Apparel increased 1% in Q2. The company said it drove significant margin expansion in its Innerwear and Activewear segments. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Hanesbrands backed its FY15 adjusted EPS view of $1.61-$1.66, versus analysts' consensus estimates of $1.65. However, the company lowered its FY15 revenue guidance to "slightly less" than $5.9B from its previous view of $5.9B-$5.95B, below analysts' estimates of $5.96B. Adjusted operating profit for the year is expected at $855M-$875M. The guidance for 2015 represents growth over 2014 results of 13%-17% for adjusted EPS, nearly 11% for net sales and 12%-15% for adjusted operating profit. Richard Noll, the chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hanesbrands, commented that the company continues to deliver double-digit growth in adjusted operating profit and EPS as expected, "and we are tracking to our full-year profit expectations." ANALYST REACTION: Barclays said this morning that Hanesbrands' weakness represented a buying opportunity. While the firm's analyst was disappointed by Innerwear weakness, the analyst said Q3 expectations have been reset. Barclays believes Hanesbrands is one of the best stories to own heading into 2016 as past M&A synergies, likely new M&A and buybacks support 2016 earnings growth. The firm rated shares an Overweight. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Hanesbrands fell $3.39, or about 10%, to $30.75 on more than twice its average daily trading volume. Despite this pullback, the shares have gained approximately 24% over the past year. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other apparel companies include Gildan Activewear (GIL), down 5.8%, and Delta Apparel (DLA), down 5.3%.
