11:35 EDTMDillard's sinks to 52-week low after joining chorus of 'disappointed' retailers
Shares of Dillard's (DDS), a retailer of fashion apparel, cosmetics and home furnishing, are falling to their worst level in a year after the company became the latest in its industry to report lower than expected third quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Dillard's reported Q3 earnings per share of $1.19 and revenue of $1.435B, narrowly missing analysts' consensus estimates of $1.20 and $1.49B, respectively. Same-store sales for the quarter fell 4%. Total merchandise sales decreased 3% for the 13-week period ended October 31. Weaker performing categories were men's apparel and accessories and ladies' accessories and lingerie with notable weakness in home and furniture the company explained. Dillard's Chief Executive Officer, William T. Dillard, II, stated, "We are disappointed with our third quarter sales performance and in the resulting decline in profit. Share buyback remained a high priority, and we repurchased $175 million of stock under our share repurchase program." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Gross margin from retail operations improved 11 basis points of sales for the 13 weeks ended October 31 compared to the prior year third quarter. Consolidated gross margin for the 13 weeks ended October 31 declined 30 basis points of sales compared to the prior year third quarter. The disparity between retail and consolidated gross margin performance is attributable to increased revenue at CDI, which is a substantially lower margin business. Inventory increased 6% at October 31 compared to November 1, 2014. For FY15, the company expects capital expenditures of $150M. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Dillard's fell $5.81, or 7.5%, to $71.79 on more than three times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week low of $68.05. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost about 36% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other apparel, cosmetics and home furnishing retailers include Macy's (M), Kohl's (KSS), JC Penny (JCP), Sears (SHLD) and Nordstrom (JWN).
10:40 EDTHDEarnings Watch: Home Depot reports following recent rout among retailers
Home Depot (HD), a home improvement retailer, is scheduled to report third quarter results before the market opens on Tuesday, November 17, with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.32 on revenue of $21.76B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.28-$1.37 on revenue of $21.16B-$22B. LAST QUARTER: On August 18, Home Depot reported second quarter adjusted EPS of $1.71 on revenue of $24.83B, generally in line with analysts' consensus estimates of $1.71 and $24.69B, respectively. The company said same-store sales increased 4.2% year-over-year, with U.S. SSS up 5.7%. The company raised its fiscal year 2015 EPS growth view to 13% from 11%-12% and its FY15 revenue growth forecast to 5.2%-6% from 4%-4.6%. The company previously raised its FY15 EPS growth view to 11%-12% and revenue growth view to 4.2%-4.8% from 3.5%-4.7%. Home Depot also said it sees FY15 SSS to be up 4.1%-4.9% y/y, an increase from its prior view of 4%-4.6% growth. Home Depot said at the time that it expected to repurchase an additional $3.9B of shares during the remainder of the year for a total of $7B. NEWS: On its last earnings conference call, Home Depot said the increased guidance reflects the outperformance of Q2 and the expected benefits of the Interline Brands acquisition. The company also noted that it will tap the long-term debt markets in the fall. During the quarter, Home Depot completed the $1.63B acquisition of Interline. STREET RESEARCH: UBS raised its price target on Home Depot to $138 from $129 on the day after its last earnings release, saying it sees several factors that could drive upside, including the addition of the Interline platform and system enhancements. PRICE ACTION: Last week, while retailers Macy's (M), Nordstrom (JWN) and numerous others in the space reported worse than expected quarterly results and gave downbeat guidance, Home Depot shares declined about 4.7%. Over the last three months, Home Depot shares are up about 1%. In early trading ahead of Tuesday's earnings, shares in Home Depot slipped about 0.25% to $119.74.
