11:01 EDTURBNAbercrombie & Fitch surges after posting surprise Q2 profit
Abercrombie & Fitch spiked in early trading after the clothing retailer posted second quarter profit and revenue that exceeded analysts' expectations. WHAT'S NEW: Abercrombie & Fitch reported Q2 earnings per share of 12c, excluding items, on revenue of $817.8M, beating analysts' consensus estimates of a loss per share of (4c) and $811.46M, respectively. Including items, EPS was (1c). Abercrombie said the quarter included a comparable sales decrease of 4% and an adverse impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates of about 5%. For the quarter, SSS declined 7% at the Abercrombie brand and 1% at Hollister. Executive Chairman Arthur Martinez commented that the quarterly results exceeded what the retailer signaled on its first quarter earnings call and said he is confident "that we are on the right track, although we recognize that we still have much to achieve." Looking ahead, Abercrombie & Fitch sees SSS trends improving in the second half of 2015, skewed towards the fourth quarter. The company expects continued headwinds from foreign currency exchange rates, a gross margin rate approximately flat to last year and flat operating expense compared to last year. Additionally, Abercrombie said it plans to open 15 full-price stores this fiscal year, in markets including China and Japan, and will close about 60 stores in the U.S. during the year. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Abercrombie is in the midst of a massive turnaround and announced the creation of six new positions as it restructures the management of its Abercrombie brand. The move is part of an effort to organize executives by brand rather than product after announcing last year that it would move away from logos. On its earnings conference call this morning, Abercrombie executives said that the company is "not naive" about the challenges it faces, but believes it is "on the right track" to restoring the business to health. Abercrombie said a new chief executive officer will be appointed "in due time." OTHERS TO WATCH: Abercrombie & Fitch peers include Urban Outfitters (URBN), American Eagle (AEO) and Express (EXPR). PRICE ACTION: Abercrombie & Fitch is up 11.75% in morning trading to $19.30.
