13:36 EDTANF, TLYS, GPS, APP, AEOGap falls after experiencing sharp decline in March SSS
Shares of apparel retailer Gap (GPS) are tumbling after the company reported a sharp decline in its March same-store sales yesterday. WHAT'S NEW: Gap reported that its same-store-sales in March declined 6% versus a 1% decrease last year. Broken down by division, same-store-sales for Gap Global were down 7% versus flat last year, Banana Republic Global declined 4% compared to a 1% gain last year and Old Navy Global fell 7% versus a 2% decline last year. Gap also reaffirmed its FY14 earnings per share view of $2.90-$2.95, which is slightly below analysts' consensus of $2.96. Last month, the retailer said that it expected March to be negatively impacted due to Easter occurring in April this year versus March last year. ANALYST REACTION: Today, Janney Capital downgraded Gap to Neutral from Buy and said the retailer's inventory continues to grow faster than sales and that promotions continue to infer a highly competitive backdrop. The firm lowered its fair value estimate for shares to $41 from $50. Janney Capital analysts Adrienne Tennant and Gabriella Carbone said that they expect the retail environment for Gap to still be challenging in the first half of FY14 and feel that SG&A control, margin-driven incentives, and ongoing buyback activity are imperative to help fuel earnings per share. Based on the weak patterns so far in the first quarter, the analysts said that they are lowering their estimates for the quarter to $2.89 from $2.95, consensus $2.96. They are also lowering their FY15 earnings per share view to $3.18 from $3.30. To reflect the spring break/Easter shift from March into April, the analysts are projecting a 1% decline for April comp. OTHERS TO WATCH: Gap's competitors include American Eagle Outfitters (AEO), American Apparel (APP), Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) and Tilly’s (TLYS). PRICE ACTION: During afternoon trading, shares of Gap are down 79c, or 2.01%, to $38.50.
