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.
