14:06 EDTLULUEarnings Preview: Lululemon Q3 could be positive turning point, analyst says
Lululemon Athletica (LULU) is scheduled to report third quarter earnings before the market open on Thursday, December 11, with a conference call scheduled for 9:00 am ET. Lululemon is a designer and retailer of yoga-inspired apparel operating primarily in North America and Australia. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 38c on revenue of $424.68, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 37c-41c on revenue of $420M-$430.54M. LAST QUARTER: Lululemon reported second quarter EPS of 33c on revenue of $390.7M, beating estimates for 29c and $367.8M, respectively. Total same-store sales were flat in Q2 on a constant dollar basis; Comparable store sales for Q2 decreased by 5% on a constant dollar basis and direct to consumer revenue increased 30% on a constant dollar basis. Looking ahead, the company raised its fiscal year 2014 normalized EPS view to $1.72-$1.77 from $1.71-$1.76 and narrowed its revenue view to $1.78B-$1.8B from $1.77B-$1.8B against estimates at that time for $1.74 and $1.78B, respectively. Third quarter EPS was forecast at 36c-38c on revenue of $420M-$425M. Q3 guidance was based on a total combined comparable sales increase in the low single digits on a constant dollar basis. The retailer forecast Q3 and FY14 gross margin of approximately 51%. NEWS: During its Q2 earnings conference call, lululemon said it was "happy" to have Advent back as a shareholder and is "looking forward" to having Advent's guidance going forward. STREET RESEARCH: Yesterday, Wells Fargo upgraded the stock to Outperform from Market Perform. Lululemon should benefit from the strength of the athletic apparel category, as well as the annual growth of over 10% in the total square footage of its stores, Wells Fargo believes. Meanwhile, the firm said its merchandise margins should increase in 2015, as it is offering smaller discounts than in the past. Barclays, which has an Overweight rating and $55 target, also wrote yesterday that the company's Q3 results could be a positive turning point for shares. Although Barclays analyst Matthew McClintock expects the company to report Q3 earnings per share of 38c, in-line with the consensus estimate, he believes that the company's comparative sales rose 1.8% last quarter, versus the same period a year earlier. If lululemon reports a 1.8% comp increase, it would mark the first time since the second quarter of 2013 that its comparative sales growth accelerated compared with the previous quarter, the analyst noted. In November, Sterne Agee downgraded lululemon to Neutral from Buy, as it believes that the company's brand has been damaged, causing many customers to leave, while its competition has become stronger. At the time of its downgrade on November 14, Sterne Agee had a price target of $39 on the stock. PRICE ACTION: Over the last three months, lululemon shares are up almost 25%. Year-to-date, shares are down nearly 20%. In afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow's earnings report, shares are down 1.25% to $47.13.
