Shares of home goods retailer Williams-Sonoma (WSM) hit a new 52-week high after the company's fourth quarter results topped expectations. In addition to its flagship brand, the company also operates the West Elm and Pottery Barn collection of chains. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Williams-Sonoma reported Q4 earnings per share of $1.38 and revenue of $1.47B, beating expectations of $1.36 and $1.43B, respectively. Q4 comparable brand revenue increased 10.4%. The company forecast Q1 EPS of 41c-44c and revenue of $920M-$940M, compared to consensus of 46c and $943.61M, respectively. Q1 comparable brand revenue is expected to increase 4%-6%. For FY14, Williams-Sonoma expects EPS and revenue of $3.05-$3.15 and $4.63B-$4.71B, versus consensus of $3.20 and $4.64B, respectively. FY14 comparable brand revenue is expected to increase 5%-10%. The company also raised its quarterly dividend to 33c from 31c per share. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, Citigroup removed Williams-Sonoma from its U.S. Focus list following the company's Q4 results, citing the stock's strong performance over the past year. However, the firm reiterated a Buy rating on shares with a $67 price target. Another firm, RW Baird, raised their price target on the shares to $70 from $64. The firm cited robust top-line trends, leverage to housing and e-commerce, and emerging international growth. RW Baird has an Outperform rating on Williams-Sonoma. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Williams-Sonoma rose $5.95, or about 10%, to $64.92 on three times its average daily trading volume. The stock continues to make new 52-week highs as the session unfolds. Including today's advance, the stock has gained about 43% over the past twelve months.
