10:55 EDTJCP, SHLD, BONT, MSears falls after reporting Q1 loss that nearly doubled analyst projections
Shares of U.S. and Canadian retailer Sears (SHLD) are falling today after the company reported a first quarter loss that was nearly double what analysts projected in both the U.S and Canada. WHAT'S NEW: Sears reported a Q1 loss per share of $3.79, which far surpassed analysts expectations of a loss per share of $1.87. The company reported Q1 revenue of $7.88B, which slightly beat analysts expectations of $7.71B. The company reported Sears Domestic comparable sales growth of 0.2% in the quarter, despite the continuing impact of consumer electronics industry trends. Kmart comparable store sales, excluding the impact of consumer electronics industry trends and the company's grocery and household goods business were down 0.4%. CEO Edward Lampert said that the company is undergoing a "significant transformation and fundamentally it is changing the way it does business. Our performance in Q1 highlights the challenges we are facing as well as the progress we are making in this transformation. We are moving away from a company that was heavily based on selling products solely through a store-based network to a member-centric business model focused on providing benefits to our members anytime and anyplace. We are seeing progress in our transformation to a member-centric, integrated retailer, as we continue to invest heavily in driving our Shop Your Way program. While this progress continued, the biggest negative contributor to sales has been from our consumer electronics business at both Sears and Kmart." The company noted that it continues to evaluate options to separate the Sears Auto Center business. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Yesterday, Sears Canada, which Sears Holdings owns a 51% stake in, reported a Q1 net loss that more than doubled year-over-year. OTHER NEWS: During the company's earnings conference calls, Sears Holdings said that it is planning to transform its consumer electronics business from a business that was focused primarily on selling televisions to a business focused on providing Connected Life solutions. The company noted that it is currently rolling out the concept to select stores. OTHERS TO WATCH: Competitors of Sears include Macy's (M), Bon-Ton Stores (BONT) and J.C. Penney (JCP). PRICE ACTION: During morning trading, shares of Sears fell $1.45 or $3.97% to $35.11. Macy's was up 1%, Bon-Ton Stores rose 2.16% and J.C. Penney rose 2%.
