12:31 EDTAEOAbercrombie upgraded at Stifel citing better assortment, trimmed costs
Shares of Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) were upgraded by research firm Stifel this morning, though the retailer's shares are slightly lower in early afternoon trading. WHAT'S NEW: Stifel analyst Richard Jaffe upgraded Abercrombie & Fitch to Buy from Hold, citing the retailer's better merchandise assortment and reshaped cost structure. Jaffe feels that Abercrombie & Fitch had been running with overblown expenses and believes that having a slimmer cost structure will allow the company to influence sales better and boost future EPS. The analyst raised his Q4 EPS estimate to $1.94 from $1.87, his FY14 EPS estimate to $2.50 from $2.43 and his FY15 EPS estimate to $3.40 from $3.14. Over the next year, Jaffe said that he expects A&F shares will be valued for the company's effort to win back customers at its Hollister and Abercrombie stores. Still, he said that Q3 could continue to be a struggle for the retailer due to external obstacles that are still a headwind. The firm maintains a $50 price target on the retailer's shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Analysts at Wunderlich also initiated coverage of the stock this morning with a Buy rating and a $48 price target. PRICE ACTION: During early afternoon trading, shares of Abercrombie & Fitch fell 9c, or 0.2%, to $41.47. OTHERS TO WATCH: Rivals to Abercrombie & Fitch include Aeropostale (ARO), Urban Outfitters (URBN), and American Eagle Outfitters (AEO).

17:10 EDTTGTMarket finishes week up slightly as earnings offset by political events
Stocks finished the week fractionally higher than where they started as strong corporate earnings reports and better than expected economic data was weighed against concerns about geopolitical issues and negative M&A news. MACRO NEWS: A few ongoing geopolitical conflicts worried investors and weighed on shares. Russia unveiled sanctions against Western countries, banning the import of a wide range of food items from the U.S, the EU and a few allied countries in response to sanctions recently enacted against it from G7 nations... President Obama authorized the bombing of rebels in Iraq and Hamas and Israel failed to reach a permanent truce... An ISM services index, the U.S. trade deficit for June, and weekly jobless claims were all better than expected. Meanwhile, the increase in unit labor costs last quarter came in below the consensus outlook, perhaps easing fears that the Fed will need to raise interest rates sooner than expected. COMPANY NEWS: On the M&A front, two huge potential deals fell through as 21st Century Fox (FOX, FOXA) withdrew its offer to acquire Time Warner (TWX) and Sprint (S) reportedly decided to end its pursuit of a merger with peer T-Mobile (TMUS)... President Obama indicated that his administration would take unilateral steps in an effort to prevent companies from carrying out tax inversion acquisitions. Among the deals or possible transactions that involve inversion are Medtronic's (MDT) acquisition of Covidien (COV), Valeant's (VRX) proposed takeover of Allergan (AGN) and Mylan's (MYL) acquisition of Abbott's (ABT) developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals business. Meanwhile, Walgreen's (WAG) stock tumbled after the U.S. company said it would not structure its takeover of European drugstore chain Alliance Boots as a tax inversion deal... 21st Century Fox, 3D printer maker Stratasys (SSYS), chip maker NVIDIA (NVDA), brewer Molson Coors (TAP), and luxury accessories maker Coach (COH) all rose following their earnings reports. Conversely, Target (TGT), luxury accessories maker Michael Kors (KORS) and Internet coupon provider Groupon (GRPN) fell following their results or guidance... Gannett (GCI) struck a deal to acquire the remaining 73% interest in Classified Ventures, whose primary asset is the online car shopping website Cars.com, for $1.8B from the other partners in the venture, which include McClatchy (MNI), Tribune Media (TRBAA), Graham Holdings (GHC) and A. H. Belo (AHC). Gannett also announced plans to spin-off its Publishing business, which includes USA Today, through a tax-free distribution to shareholders... McDonald's (MCD) stock was little changed after the company reported that its comparable store sales fell 2.5% in July, which was significantly worse than expected. Food quality issues weighed on the fast food company's sales in Asia and as a result of the China supplier issue, the company warned its previously issued global comparable sales forecast for 2014 is now at risk. INDEXES: The Dow finished the week up 0.35% to 16,553.93, the S&P 500 rose 0.32% to 1,931.59, and the Nasdaq gained 0.41% to 4,370.90.
