10:44 EDTVRA, TJX, AEO, ROST, FOSL, SIG, TIFAnalyst sees storm to reduce Q4 retail sales by about 1%
The winter storm hitting the Northeast is likely to reduce retailers' sales by about 1% in their fourth quarter, Citigroup estimated. WHAT'S NEW: The storm will likely cause many shoppers to stay home between Thursday and Saturday in the Northeast and Midwest, Citigroup analyst Oliver Chen wrote in a note to investors. The snowfall yesterday and today, followed by very low temperatures on Saturday, will keep many customers in the affected regions to stay out of stores, the analyst explained. Last year, store traffic during the first Thursday to Saturday in January made up 3%-4% of retailers' total fourth quarter traffic, Chen estimated. Retailers with the most stores in the areas affected by the storm include Vera Bradley (VRA), TJX (TJX), and American Eagle (AEO), the analyst wrote. Retailers with the lowest number of stores in the affected areas include Ross Stores (ROST) and Fossil (FOSL), according to Chen. Also likely to be less affected by the storm than many retailers are companies that specialize in selling jewelry, including Tiffany (TIF) and Signet Jewelers (SIG), he added. The storm is not likely to impact sales of Valentine Day's gifts, Chen explained. PRICE ACTION: In midday trading, Vera Bradley rose 1% to $24.25, TJX added 0.8% to $64, American Eagle advanced 0.5% to $14.80, Ross Stores gained 0.5% to $74.65, Fossil was up 0.8% to $119, Tiffany lost 0.2% to $92.35, and Signet Jewelers was 1% higher to $79.50.

13:10 EDTVRASteve Madden tumbles after providing preliminary Q3 results, FY14 outlook
Shares of shoe and accessory company Steve Madden (SHOO) are tumbling after the company announced preliminary third quarter results that were below analysts' consensus along with a reduction to its fiscal year 2014 outlook. WHAT'S NEW: Steve Madden announced that it is anticipating Q3 earnings per share to be approximately 61c-62c and net sales of $392M, below analysts' consensus estimates of 67c and $415.72M, respectively. The company noted that retail comparable store sales for the quarter are anticipated to be down 7.4%. Steve Madden also reduced its FY14 EPS outlook to $1.81-$1.86 from $2.00-$2.10, well below analysts' $2.02 consensus. The company lowered its net sales projection for the year, and now sees net sales up 1%-2% over fiscal year 2013 versus its previous net sales guidance for up 2%-4% over FY13. The new guidance factors in the recent acquisition of Dolce Vita and current expectations for remainder of the year. On August 14, Steve madden acquired Dolce Vita for $60.3M in cash and previously said the deal would be accretive to earnings in FY14 by 2c-3c and be "modestly accretive" in FY15. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Steve Madden's Chief Executive Officer Edward Rosenfeld said that the company's Q3 earnings were "disappointing" and were the result of weaker than expected retail segment performance. He believes that retail trends in the footwear space will continue to be difficult through the fourth quarter due to a lack of noteworthy fashion trends in the industry. The CEO said that the company's full-year guidance results from this pattern, along with a lowered reorder outlook in its wholesale segment. Rosenfeld is still confident, however, in the company's business model and believes that its acquisitions of Dolce Vita and its Mexican licensee will fuel the business forward over the long term. OTHERS TO WATCH: Competitors of Steve Madden include Michael Kors (KORS), Coach (COH), Kate Spade (KATE), and Vera Bradley. PRICE ACTION: During afternoon trading, shares of Steve Madden fell $2.62 or 8.2%, to $29.32. Over the last twelve months, the stock has fallen over 15%.
