16:34 EDTTEA, FB, MWW, SNE, ANF, SBUX, IAG, APOOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower after a brief pop at the open quickly reversed into a day long sell-off that saw the averages close at their lows. With concerns about the fiscal cliff lingering, President Obama's news conference during the afternoon did little to help the market. Oil prices spiked as Israel launched a Gaza offensive and killed a Hamas commander, though stocks did not follow the commodity's path higher... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales fell 0.3% in October, versus expectations for a decline of 0.2%. Producer prices fell 0.2% in the month, versus forecasts for them to have increased 0.2%. Excluding food and energy, the core reading fell 0.2%, versus the expected increase of 0.4%. Business inventories rose 0.7% in September, versus expectations for an increase of 0.6%. Minutes from the October meeting of the Federal Reserve showed many Fed members see the adoption of quantitative thresholds as helping, though the committee said a number of practical issues would need to be overcome before the thresholds could be instituted... COMPANY NEWS: Starbucks (SBUX) announced it was purchasing Teavana (TEA) for $620M, or $15.50 per share, in an all-cash transaction. Shares of Teavana, which were halted ahead of the announcement after the Atlanta Business Chronicle broke the news, advanced $5.32, or 52.52%, to $15.45. Shares of Starbucks settled down $1.47, or 2.92%, at $48.84... Bloomberg reported that Monster Worldwide (MWW) still has no bidders as TPG and Apollo Global (APO) passed on the company, and shares of Monster traded lower after the news, settling down 31c, or 4.97%, at $5.93... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), up $10.74, or 34.45%, to $41.92 after the company reported better than expected earnings, raised its full year EPS view, and the stock received at least five analyst upgrades. Also higher were shares of Facebook (FB), up $2.50, or 12.59%, to $22.36 in spite of the expiration of a lockup that permitted many investors and employees to sell their shares for the first time since the company's IPO. Among the noteworthy losers was IAMGOLD (IAG), down $2.89, or 19.45%, to $11.97 after the company reported quarterly results and production guidance that disappointed. Also lower were shares of Sony (SNE), down 95c, or 8.82%, to $9.82 after the company issued a large amount of bonds that may convert to stock under certain conditions... INDICES: The Dow lost 185.23, or 1.45%, to 12,570.95; the Nasdaq fell 37.08, or 1.29%, to 2,846.81; and the S&P 500 dropped 19.04, or 1.39%, to 1,355.49.

20:16 EDTANFUrban Outfitters down over 16% after disappointing Q1 results
Urban Oufitters (URBN) is down sharply after reporting first quarter earnings per share and revenue that missed analyst estimates. WHAT'S NEW: Urban Oufitters reported Q1 EPS of 25c on revenue of $739.01M, below consensus expectations of 30c and $758.25M, respectively. Urban Outfitters also reported Q1 comparable retail segment net sales up 4%, with Q1 retail segment net sales increasing 17% at Free People, 5% at Urban Outfitters, and 1% at the Anthropologie Group. Wholesale segment net sales rose 18%. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On its Q1 earnings conference call, Urban Outfitters announced that Urban Outfitters Group CEO Ted Marlow, who oversaw the direction of the namesake brand, would retire at the end of August. While Urban Outfitters did not provide guidance, Urban Outfitters Anthropologie Group CEO David McCreight commented on the Anthropologie brand, "We're expecting we could see Q2 shaping up like Q1 in terms of low single-digit comps. We could also see being in the low-mid-single digit comps. It's hard to tell at this point." ANALYST REACTION: Two analyst firms lowered their respective price targets on Urban Outfitters following the company's earnings report. Sterne Agee, which rates Urban Outfitters a Neutral, lowered its 12-month price target to $34 from $46, noting the company has had trouble getting both its Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie brands to perform at the same time. Cantor, which maintained its Buy rating, lowered its price target to $53 from $54, saying that Anthropologie sales disappointed, but noting that a "later catalog release appears to us to have pushed some sales at Anthropologie into May." PRICE ACTION: Urban Outfitters fell 16.4% to just over $34 in after-hours trading. PEERS: Other publicly traded companies in the space include Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF), American Eagle (AEO), Five Below (FIVE), Pacific Sunwear (PSUN), and Zumiez (ZUMZ).
