10:12 EDTHAINNatural food makers rise following Annies acquisition
Shares of a number of natural food makers are climbing after one of the companies in the sector, Annies (BNNY), announced last night that it agreed to be acquired by General Mills (GIS). In a note to investors today, research firm Oppenheimer wrote that the deal should cause the valuations of two natural food makers, Boulder Brands (BDBD) and WhiteWave (WWAV), to rise in the near-term. WHAT'S NEW: General Mills last night said that it had agreed to buy Annie's for $46 per share in cash, or $820M. Annies' stock closed yesterday at $33.51. General Mills expects the transaction to be accretive to its earnings in the first 12 months following the completion of the deal. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh wrote that the acquisition of Annie's could cause the valuations of stocks in the natural foods sector to rise significantly. The terms of the acquisition of Annies imply a nearly 40x P/E multiple to consensus FY15 forecasts for the company, according to Parikh. The shares of Boulder Brands and WhiteWave should advance in the near-term, added the analyst, who kept Outperform ratings on both names PRICE ACTION: In early trading, WhiteWave rose 3.9% to $37.10, while Boulder Brands jumped 7.6% to $14.25. Another stock in the sector, Hain Celestial (HAIN), advanced 3.5% to $101.17, while Annies surged 37% to $46 and General Mills slipped 0.5% to $53.26.

12:19 EDTANFGap falls after reporting August same-store sales decline
Shares of apparel retailer Gap (GPS) are falling after the company reported disappointing August same-store sales results and Buckingham analysts downgraded the company's stock. WHAT'S NEW: Gap reported last night that its August comparable sales declined 2%, compared to a 2% increase a year ago in the same month. Gap Global SSS fell 9%, Banana Republic Global SSS fell 2% and Old Navy Global SSS rose 2%. Gap also reported its August net sales were flat compared to last year's $1.23B. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Looking ahead, the company said Gap's August sales performance will likely put pressure on the brand's gross margins in September. ANALYST REACTION: Gap was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Buckingham this morning following the August comparable sales numbers. Buckingham analysts say they question the previously anticipated 2H14 comp recovery at the core brand and do not see upside to the stock if the flagship brand does not turn positive in the second half. Buckingham expects the stock's multiple to contract back to its historical average until sales improve. The firm still expects full-year 2014 guidance to be achievable as Gap manages expenses and it continues to like operational improvements the company is making in its supply chain and omni-channel initiatives. Until sales improve, Buckingham expects shares to remain range bound near $44 to $46. UBS analysts, on the other hand, say Gap's share weakness presents a buying opportunity. The firm said the miss does not derail the company's ability to show improvement over the second half and does not impact their long-term thesis tied to margin improvement opportunities. PRICE ACTION: Near noon, Gap fell $2.20, or about 5%, to $44.39. OTHERS TO WATCH: Competitors to Gap include American Apparel (APP), American Eagle (AEO), Urban Outfitters (URBN), Express (EXPR), and Abercrombie and Fitch (ANF).
