10:49 EDTAROAbercrombie & Fitch soars after reporting upbeat Q3 earnings
Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) shares jumped in morning trading after the company reported better than expected quarterly earnings. WHAT'S NEW: Before the market open, Abercrombie & Fitch reported third quarter adjusted earnings per share of 48c on revenue of $878.6M. The consensus was for EPS of 22c on revenue of $864.65M. The company said that the adjusted EPS figure included year-over-year adverse effects from changes in foreign currency exchange rates amounting to roughly 13c. Commenting on the earnings, executive chairman Arthur Martinez said that the company's results "exceeded" expectations and "provide the strongest validation yet" that the retailer's initiatives are working. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On its Q3 earnings conference call, Abercrombie said that it is eyeing expansion outside of the U.S., aiming to roll out multiple new capabilities in the U.K. The company added that it saw growth in China in the past quarter and plans to add mobile enhancements in China in 2016. STREET RESEARCH: A day before Abercrombie's Q3 earnings release, Susquehanna analyst Thomas Filandro said that the retailer was "well positioned" for the holiday season, though weather and international unrest may lead to a higher degree of near-term uncertainty. Filandro said that his firm sees improved holiday performance as Abercrombie shifts focus on an improved in-store experience, growing U.S. outlets, closing underperforming stores, and evolving its merchandise assortment. The analyst reiterated a Positive rating and a $26 price target on the company's stock. After the retailer reported earnings, KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma maintained an Overweight rating on Abercrombie's shares, saying that the company's better than expected quarter was "particularly impressive" in light of the recent weakness in the retail sector. Yruma said that the company's new brand initiatives are taking hold and that greater expense control and reduced promotional activity are improving the well-being of the business. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Abercrombie & Fitch rallied over 18% to $23.00. OTHERS TO WATCH: American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) was up just under 3%, Aeropostale (ARO) gained 0.75%, Tilly's (TLYS) rallied 3.4%, Urban Outfitters (URBN) jumped more than 4%, Buckle (BKE) was up just under 1%, and Express (EXPR) fell fractionally in morning trading.
