07:10 EDTMTNVail Resorts deserves premium multiple, says Stephens
Stephens attributes Vail Resorts' better than expected Q4 EBITDA to cost management in the Mountain segment, strong revenues in the Lodging segment, and better than expected real estate results. The firm, which believes Vail deserves a premium multiple given its ski resort industry leading position and consistent growth profile, keeps its Overweight rating on shares and raised its price target on the stock to $124 from $123.

08:07 EDTMTNVail Resorts sees FY16 Resort Reported EBITDA $405M-$430M
The company commented, "Our Resort Reported EBITDA guidance includes the first year of the combined Park City, now including the former Canyons terrain, and the first full year of operating results for Perisher, both of which are in line with our previously issued expectations. We expect Resort EBITDA Margin to be approximately 27.5% in fiscal 2016, using the midpoint of the guidance range. This is an estimated 190 basis point increase over fiscal 2015, excluding the non-cash gain on the Park City litigation settlement and Perisher EBITDA. We estimate fiscal 2016 Real Estate Reported EBITDA to be between negative $4 million and positive $2 million, which includes a reduced allocation of corporate costs as the remaining condo inventory available for sale decreases. Net Real Estate Cash Flow is expected to be between $13 million and $28 million. Net income attributable to Vail Resorts, Inc. is expected to be between $118 million and $144 million in fiscal 2016. All of these estimates are predicted on an exchange rate of $0.71 between the Australian Dollar and U.S. Dollar."

11:48 EDTPIRPier 1 Imports plunges to 52-week low after cutting FY16 outlook
Shares of home furnishings retailer Pier 1 Imports (PIR) are sinking after the company's second quarter results missed analysts' consensus estimates. The company also lowered its outlook for fiscal year 2016. WHAT'S NEW: After the close on Thursday, Pier 1 Imports reported Q2 earnings per share of 4c and revenue of $430M, missing analysts' consensus estimates of 7c and $435.38M, respectively. Company comparable sales increased 2.5% in Q2, or 3.8% on a constant currency basis. Alex Smith, the company's president and chief executive officer, commented in the earnings report that top line growth in the period was "below our expectations." Smith noted that margins were impacted by higher promotional and clearance activity, as well as inventory-related issues within its distribution center network. Looking ahead, Pier 1 Imports expects third quarter EPS of 10c-14c, far short of analysts' consensus estimates of 23c. Company comparable sales growth, which includes e-commerce, is expected in the low-single digits for the quarter. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Pier 1 lowered its FY16 EPS view to 56c-64c from 83c-87c, well below analysts' estimates of 83c. The company also cut its FY16 company comparable sales growth view, including e-commerce, to low single-digits from its prior view of mid-single digits. For FY16, Pier One sees capital expenditures of approximately $60M, EBITDA margins of approximately 7.5%-8% and merchandising margin, as a percentage of sales, of 55.5%-56%. Smith said the company is on track to end FY16 with year-over-year inventory levels "down meaningfully," but noted that operating with elevated inventories "has been a challenge." PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Pier 1 Imports fell $1.45, or 16.71%, to $7.23 on more than seven times its average daily trading volume. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week low of $6.84. Including today's pull back, the shares have lost approximately 40% over the past year. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other home furnishing retailers include Williams-Sonoma (WSM), up 0.73% and Restoration Hardware (RH), up 0.11%.
