15:08 EDTGESGuess technical comments ahead of results
In the past three months the stock has underperformed most indexes, trading down by over 4%. The trend since early July has been bearish. Sentiment in the name is strongly bearish, with over 12% of the float short according to the most recent report. On good news that exceeds even bullish expectations, this large short-base could lead to a short-covering squeeze. In that event, resistance levels to watch as potential upside objectives are at $27.30, $28.45, and $31.55. It would take a move above $35 to turn the longer-term trend bullish again. On bad news that is worse than the most pessimistic estimates, support would be at $24.60 which is the 52-week low. On a breakdown below that low, next supports would be at $22.66 and $19.56 on an extreme move.

12:08 EDTGESGap hits 52-week high following beat and raise quarter
Shares of specialty apparel retailer The Gap (GPS) are advancing after the company posted better than expected second quarter results, and raised its fiscal 2014 profit outlook. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Gap reported Q2 earnings per share of 75c and revenue of $3.98B, topping analysts’ consensus estimates of 69c and $3.96B, respectively. Q2 same store sales were flat versus the prior year period. WHAT’S NOTABLE: For FY14, Gap raised its EPS view to $2.95-$3.00 from $2.90-$2.95, versus consensus of $2.95. The company updated its guidance for FY14 diluted EPS to reflect the 5c related to the gain on asset sale. For FY14, the company continues to expect capital spending to be approximately $750M in support of its outlined strategies. Gap also announced it will enter India through franchise-operated Gap brand stores in 2015. Gap is partnering with Arvind Lifestyle Brand Limited, a subsidiary of Arvind Limited, which is one of India’s largest textile companies. The first stores are expected to open in India’s two largest cities – Mumbai and Delhi – starting with Gap’s Summer 2015 collection for adults, kids and babies. The brand plans to open about 40 franchise-operated Gap stores in India. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was decidedly positive. Research firm Janney Capital upgraded Gap to Buy from Neutral. The firm upgraded shares based on the overall improving Softlines sector due to an inventory correction, Old Navy strength, global opportunities, potential improved gross margin returns on inventory investment, and best-in-class management. Their price target on the shares is $51. Another firm, UBS, said Gap is well positioned for second half upside citing its Omni-channel advantage, shift to higher margin businesses, increased square footage, and modestly positive comps driven by ecommerce. UBS has a Buy rating and a $50 price target on the stock. Sterne Agee says Gap’s valuation is very attractive. The firm believes that Gap's fundamentals are improving, while the setup for the stock over the next 12-18 months is favorable. It adds that the company's gross margins should be boosted by several factors going forward, and it kept a Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Gap rose $2.04, or 4.7%, to $45.22 on heavy trading volume. Earlier in the session, it reached a new 52-week high of $45.47. Including today’s advance, the stock has gained over 7.5% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other specialty apparel companies include Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), American Eagle Outfitters (AEO), Guess (GES), and The Buckle (BKE).
