13:05 EDTCROXCrocs jumps after racing past expectations, detailing store strategy
Shares of footwear maker Crocs (CROX) are jumping after the company reported second quarter earnings per share and revenue that exceeded analysts' consensus. Crocs also detailed its strategic plans, which includes cost-saving measures and store closures. WHAT'S NEW: Crocs' EPS of 36c beat analysts' consensus of 31c and its Q2 revenue of $376.92M was higher than analysts' consensus of $372.76M. Crocs reported that its global Q2 same-store sales fell 5.1%, as SSS in the Americas for the quarter were down 6.2% and its SSS in Asia Pacific was down 6%, though its SSS in Europe rose 1.1%. The company foresees Q3 revenue to be between $300M-$305M, compared to analysts' consensus of $300.5M prior to the update. Crocs detailed its strategic plans for long-term improvement and growth of the business, including streamlining its product and marketing portfolio, reducing direct investment in smaller geographic markets, reducing duplicative and excess overhead, and closing or converting approximately 75 to 100 Crocs branded retail stores globally. The company expects cost savings associated with the reduction in force of $4M in FY14 and $10M in FY15. The company expects store closings will reduce revenue by approximately $35M-$50M and reduce SG&A expense by approximately $17M-$25M with an insignificant impact on future operating income. ANALYST REACTION: Buckingham analyst Scott Krasik reiterated his Buy rating on Crocs after the company reported "solid" Q2 revenue and EPS that was better than expectations. Krasik is "encouraged" by management's outlook for mid-single digit backlog and thinks investors should add to positions after seeing the first details of the company's restructuring plans. PRICE ACTION: During afternoon trading, Crocs was up $1.65 or 11.1%, to $16.49.

12:48 EDTSPWRSolar stocks rise after successful IPO in space
Shares of solar energy companies are rising after a solar energy company's subsidiary surged on its first day of trading. WHAT'S NEW: The shares of SunEdison (SUNE) subsidiary TerraForm (TERP) are surging 36% in early afternoon trading. TerraForm Power opened at $33.26 and was trading near $34 per share at midday, after its initial public offering priced at $25 per share. TerraForm was formed to own and operate assets that generate clean power and the company plans to pay dividends. In a note to investors yesterday, Josh Baribeau, an analyst at Canaccord Genuity, wrote that TerraForm is a Yieldco. Subsidiaries of energy companies that own power plants and projects, Yieldcos typically trade on stock exchanges. Noting that TerraForm's IPO had priced at the high end of its expected range yesterday and was well oversubscribed, Baribeau wrote that this outcome reflects the strong demand for Yieldcos among investors. The Yieldcos provide investors with yield which is in high demand in today's low interest rate environment, the analyst stated. Additionally, as a result of the strong demand for Yieldcos' stocks, they provide their parent companies with "cheap and abundant capital," the analyst stated. SunEdison and TerraForm will grow their combined cash available for distributions at a faster rate than their target of 15% over the next three years, helping SunEdison's stock rise, the analyst stated. He kept a $30 price target and Buy rating on SunEdison. WHAT'S NOTABLE: A number of solar energy companies that own solar projects could form Yieldcos, research firm Trefis wrote in a Forbes column last month. Like Canaccord's Baribeau, Trefis believes that Yieldcos provide their parent companies with a cheap source of funding. Yieldcos also distribute most of their cash through dividends, Trefis stated. The firm named First Solar (FSLR) and SunPower (SPWR) as companies that could launch their own Yieldcos. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Terraform jumped 36% to $34 and SunEdison was down 1% to $22.76. Meanwhile, First Solar rose 1.4% to $62.29, SunPower climbed 2.7% to $38.71, JinkoSolar gained 2.8% to $26.75, and Canadian Solar (CSIQ) advanced 3% to $28.71.
