08:02 EDTJCPJ.C. Penney pursues sale of home office campus
J.C. Penney announced that it is pursuing the potential sale and partial leaseback of its Home Office building in Plano, Texas as part of an ongoing effort to reduce outstanding debt and effectively manage expenses. A combination of favorable market conditions and a surplus of available square footage within the building make this an attractive real estate opportunity for the company. It is expected that the cost of leasing space within the building would be offset by a reduction in maintenance costs, property taxes and interest expense as a result of paying down debt with proceeds from the transaction. CBRE Capital Markets has been selected to market the 1.8 million-square-foot, Class A office campus located in Legacy Business Park in Plano, Texas. The new owner will have the opportunity to market over 650,000 square feet of contiguous space within the coveted Legacy West submarket. These actions follow a decision in 2014 to contribute a significant portion of fringe land around the Home Office to a joint venture with a team of developers.

10:28 EDTJCPKohl's slumps after cutting forecast on lower than planned sales, margins
Shares of Kohl's (KSS) are plunging after the department store retailer cut its earnings per share guidance for fiscal year 2015 based on lower than planned sales for the quarter and "significantly" lower gross margins. WHAT'S NEW: Kohl's said this morning that comparable store sales for the fourth quarter increased 0.4%, with total quarterly sales rising 0.8%. The company said that despite a "very strong" holiday selling season, sales were "very volatile and less than planned" in the quarter. Additionally, Kohl's said the holiday season results were offset by a "very slow start" to Q4 in November as well as a weaker than expected January due to soft demand for cold-weather goods that led to lower store traffic. Looking ahead, Kohl's cut its FY15 EPS view to $3.95-$4.00, excluding losses from debt repayment, against analysts' consensus estimate of $4.30. Kohl's previously expected FY15 EPS to be at the low end of its $4.40-$4.60 range. Kohl's said it lowered its guidance as a result of lower than expected quarterly sales and "significantly lower than planned" gross margin. Kohl's is expected to report Q4 results on February 25. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Kohl's is considering whether to hire an investment bank to advise the company on alternatives including going private or a break up, The Wall Street Journal reported on January 11, citing a source. Kohl's executives are said to be open to a strategic review, the source said. ALSO NOTABLE: Retailer Ralph Lauren (RL) this morning said that while international net revenue grew 6% in constant currency in its third quarter, North America revenue declined 4%, due in part to warmer temperatures for the fall and holiday season. ANALYST OPINIONS: Buckingham yesterday upgraded Kohl's to Buy from Neutral, as the firm expected Kohl's SSS to rise by a low single digit percentage level in Q4. Analysts at Stifel said on January 11 that Kohl's could be worth as much as $95 in a takeover. PRICE ACTION: Kohl's is down over 14% to $43.72 in morning trading. OTHERS TO WATCH: Ralph Lauren is down over 17.5% to trade near $95 per share. Department store peers Macy's (M) and J.C. Penney (JCP) are down 3% and 2%, respectively, this morning.

16:23 EDTPVHPVH Corp. sees 2015 earnings at high end of guidance range
PVH Corp. announced that it currently expects its earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis for 2015 to be at or above $7.00, the high end of its guidance range previously announced on December 2, 2015. The consensus estimate is $6.97. The company said, "Our improved outlook for our earnings per share projection reflects the power of our designer lifestyle brands, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, which enabled us to successfully navigate through the difficult macroeconomic environment, particularly the continued headwinds across our businesses resulting from the strengthening U.S. dollar. Specifically, during the fourth quarter, we experienced continued strength in our global Calvin Klein business and Tommy Hilfiger International business. We were able to post stronger results despite a difficult U.S. retail environment, which was negatively impacted by unseasonably warm weather and decreased international tourist traffic and spending, particularly for our Tommy Hilfiger brand."
