10:30 EDTCOH, KORS, KATEMichael Kors risks seen increasing, shares downgraded
Shares of accessories designer Michael Kors (KORS) are falling after research firm Robert W. Baird downgraded the stock in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: There is increased risk to Michael Kors' revenue and profit margins in North America, Baird analyst Mark Altschwager wrote. The firm's survey on handbags suggests that many fewer consumers are looking to buy handbags this quarter than in the prior quarter, the analyst stated. Additionally, the survey suggests that fewer women plan to buy a Michael Kors handbag in Q3 than in Q2, Baird stated. Meanwhile, Internet search trend data indicates that Michael Kors' trends in the U.S. decelerated in July, Altschwager stated. On a positive note, Michael Kors can still meet its guidance for a high teen percentage increase in Q1 comparative sales and the company's European business appears to be strong, the analyst stated. Moreover, the accessories maker's Q1 results and its guidance are likely to be in-line with expectations, Altschwager believes. However, he "sees less room" for the company's Q1 results to beat expectations. The analyst lowered his price target on the shares to $98 from $114 and cut his rating to Neutral from Outperform. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In recent days Topeka, Morgan Stanley, and Piper Jaffray recommended buying Michael Kors' stock following its weakness. However, BMO Capital called the stock overvalued and Citigroup wrote that its own survey showed that Michael Kors' watch sales were moderating. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Michael Kors fell 1% to $82.91. Other companies in the space were mixed, as Coach (COH) gained 1.4% to $34.83 and Kate Spade (KATE) lost 0.6% to $38.45.

06:30 EDTCOHCoach upgraded to Buy from Hold at Topeka
Topeka upgraded Coach to Buy and raised its price target to $44 from $40 following yesterday's Fall 2015 fashion week. The analyst is impressed how quickly Coach has changed its assortments under new design director Stuart Vevers. Topeka said there are more opening price points in handbags and improved cohesion between collection and core, creating a brand halo effect. Additionally, the firm's recent mall checks indicate a pickup in Coach store traffic.
