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).
11:09 EDTARWRArrowhead says data shows ARC-520 can produce reductions of HBV antigens
Arrowhead Research Corporation presented data from a Phase 2a clinical study at The AASLD Liver Meeting 2015 demonstrating that ARC-520, its lead drug candidate against chronic hepatitis B infection, effectively reduced HBV viral antigens derived from cccDNA. HBV surface antigen was reduced substantially with a maximum reduction of 1.9 logs and a mean maximum reduction of 1.5 logs in treatment naive e-antigen-positive patients. This direct antiviral effect was still evident 57 days after a single dose. These data strongly support advancement of ARC-520, and Arrowhead has initiated multiple studies aimed at producing a functional cure of HBV. In this presentation, Dr. Yuen and co-authors show that in the Heparc-2001 clinical study, ARC-520 in combination with entecavir achieved maximum reductions of HBsAg, HBV DNA, HBeAg, and core-related antigen of 1.9 logs, 4.3 logs, 1.7 logs, and 1.2 logs, respectively. Consistent with findings from Arrowhead's chimpanzee study, also presented at AASLD, variations in viral antigen reduction indicated that patients previously treated with chronic entecavir and patients that were treatment-naive and negative for HBeAg likely had lower levels of cccDNA derived mRNA transcripts. As such, HBeAg-positive treatment naive patients experienced a greater relative reduction in HBsAg than patients that were HBeAg-negative or treatment experienced. One transitional patient in cohort 7 was HBeAg-positive at baseline and became HBeAg-negative at days 3 to 43. This patient experienced an intermediate response initially, however HBsAg continued to trend downward through day 57, the last time-point available. ARC-520 was well tolerated with no serious adverse events, no dose limiting toxicities, no discontinuations due to medication AEs, and a modest occurrence rate of AEs that were all deemed unrelated to study drug by the principal investigator. No AE occurred more than once. There were no AEs amongst 10 patients receiving placebo. There was a low occurrence rate of abnormal laboratory tests, with no observed relationship to timing or dose.
