09:05 EDTKORSKors calls speculation of analyst 'heads up' false, unfounded, TheStreet says
TheStreet's Herb Greenberg reported that Michael Kors' outside counsel called suggestions made by Greenberg last week on whether the company may have communicated with analysts regarding its coming quarter "completely false and unfounded," adding that the author would have received "vehement denials and assurances" that Kors "takes Regulation FD compliance very seriously" had he called prior to his publication of the story "Kors Analyst Action -- Coincidence or Not?" For his part, Greenberg states that he did not call because his blog is "steeped in observation, analysis and commentary," but wishes that he did call in retrospect. Prior to Greenberg's previous story, four analysts took negative action on the stock despite no apparent news, leading to his questioning of that coincidence. Reference Link

10:23 EDTKORSBMO Capital says high-end handbag makers to stay weak
High end handbag makers Coach (COH), Kate Spade (KATE) and Michael Kors (KORS) are continuing to struggle and their share prices are likely to remain weak, research firm BMO Capital wrote in a note to investors today. The firm significantly cut its price targets on all three names. WHAT'S NEW: Consumers are spending less on high-end handbags as they increase the amount they allocate to other areas, including travel, leisure and apparel, BMO Capital analyst John Morris stated. Consequently, the North American handbag market was expanding at a 5% rate at the end of June, down from a high single digit rate earlier this year, according to Morris. Meanwhile, competition within the space is mounting and handbag price wars are continuing, the analyst stated. Although handbag stocks have dropped significantly and their valuations appear attractive, they are "falling knives," the analyst warned. Assessing the status of specific companies, Morris says that Kate Spade has avoided implementing major price cuts on its products, though its comparative sales and "mind share" have suffered as a result of that decision and stores are displaying its products less prominently. Coach's stock suggests that investors expect the company's fundamentals to rebound, but Morris thinks that their optimism may be premature. The pace of the company's improvement "remains challenging," and it is likely to be hurt by a decline of U.S. tourism, he believes. Also likely to be hurt by declines in tourism is Michael Kors, the analyst stated. The prices of Michael Kors' products are being reduced by retailers, its gross margins are sinking and its watch business is weak, Morris warned. He reduced his price target on Kate Spade to $19 from $30, on Coach to $28 from $37 and on Michael Kors to $40 from $51. The analyst kept Market Perform ratings on all three stocks. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Kate Spade was little changed at $18.75, Coach fell 0.5% to $30.60 and Michael Kors was fractionally higher at $39.17.
