Analysts Furnish Portfolios With RH After Beat-And-Raise Quarter
Analysts Furnish Portfolios With RH After Beat-And-Raise Quarter

Benzinga Feeds Restoration Hardware Holdings (NYSE: RH ) surged Thursday after reporting its third consecutive bottom-line beat and raise. “To management’s credit, this is becoming a common theme, as earnings have surprised to the upside multiple times this year,” Raymond James analysts Bobby Griffin and Budd Bugatch wrote in a report. “Despite a challenging environment for residential furniture (no resolution to China tariffs), RH continues to deliver best-in-class results, thereby illustrating the strength of the RH brand and business model CEO Friedman and his team have built up over the last few years.” RH Earnings Analysis RH reported an adjusted $2.79 bottom line on a lower-than-expected tax rate and 44% year-over-year growth in earnings before interest and tax (EBIT). Gross margins expanded 180 basis points to 41.7% as price increases drove positive product margins. Sales grew 6%, driven largely by outlet sales and RH New York. “While we had hoped for stronger topline performance (which once again benefitted from 2pts of outlet growth), RH’s profit improvement is undeniable during a time where most retailers are struggling to keep margins flat,” Wells Fargo analyst Zachary Fadem wrote. more…

US Black Friday shoppers stay away from stores, make US$7b-plus splurge online
US Black Friday shoppers stay away from stores, make US$7b-plus splurge online

The Sun Daily WASHINGTON: US shoppers made more purchases online on Black Friday than in the mall – hurting traffic and sales at brick-and-mortar stores, according to data that offered a glimpse into what is still one of the busiest shopping days of the year. For the first time in several years, however, store traffic on Thanksgiving evening grew – indicating a shift in when consumers are leaving their homes to shop. It is also a sign of how Thursday evening store openings have continued to hurt what has traditionally been a day that kicked off the US holiday season. The importance on the shopping calendar of Black Friday, or the day after the US Thanksgiving Day holiday, has waned in recent years. This is due to the choice by many retailers to open their stores on Thursday evening, as well as to early holiday promotions and year-round discounts. However, it is increasingly turning into a day when shoppers do not necessarily flock to stores but spend heavily online. Also, for most retail chains, Black Friday store traffic and sales data is not necessarily grim as consumers continue to spend, consultants said. more…

PreMarket Prep Recap: Target Hits The Spot, Analyst Sparks Rally In Canopy Growth
PreMarket Prep Recap: Target Hits The Spot, Analyst Sparks Rally In Canopy Growth

Benzinga Feeds There were plenty of market movers to cover on Wednesday's PreMarket Prep Show . To no surprise, a few retail stocks were in focus after earnings reports and one analyst made a bold call on Canopy Growth. Hard To Find An Upside Target It's hard to imagine Target Corp (NYSE: TGT ) could match its price performance following its third-quarter report, but it did. Before the open, the company announced a beat of 17 cents along with a sales beat and raised 2019 guidance. With the issue gapping up into no man's land, it was "too high to chase and too hot too short." The only significant data point was the pre-market high ($123.69) mentioned as possible resistance. In the regular session, it surpassed that level reaching $126.06 and then retreated to the $124 area. Home Depot Sets Low Bar For Lowe's To Surpass After the shellacking Home Depot (NYSE: HD ) took on Tuesday, investors weren't expecting a great quarter from Lowe's (NYSE: LOW ). They were wrong. In this morning's release, the company announced an EPS beat but came up shy on sales. more…

These Analysts Loved Target's Q3 Earnings, And Think The Retailer Will Win The Holiday Wars
These Analysts Loved Target's Q3 Earnings, And Think The Retailer Will Win The Holiday Wars

Benzinga Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT ) soared 14% after reporting third-quarter beats on Wednesday. Sales and margin upside drove bottom-line outperformance, and 4.5% comps confirmed traffic strength, apparel strength and market share gains in major categories. Inventories fell 8% year over year, and store comps of 2.8% revealed no cannibalization from digital growth. Analysts had little to complain about. “This quarter will likely force many investors to re-evaluate their longer-term view of the Target story, which we believe positions the company well for further valuation multiple< expansion as well as more aggressive earnings growth forecasts,” Raymond James analyst Matthew McClintock wrote in a note. First Impressions Of Target's Q3 Earnings Analysts focused largely on Target’s strong apparel performance. “This was even more noteworthy given the unseasonably warm weather in September,” KeyBanc's Edward Yruma wrote in a report. Raymond James noted that no apparel retailers except Lululemon Athletica Inc (NASDAQ: LULU ) report double digit comps like Target did. more…

Despite Strong Earnings From Lowe's, Target, Market On Defensive From Trade Fears
Despite Strong Earnings From Lowe's, Target, Market On Defensive From Trade Fears

Benzinga Feeds Today’s early action is another reminder that tariffs reign supreme in this market. You can have great results from two of the biggest retailers, but if the headlines go south on trade that’s what seems to matter most overall. Home Depot Inc (NYSE: HD ) earnings yesterday may not have lived up to some investors’ hopes, but Lowe’s Companies Inc (NYSE: LOW ) and Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT ) today made up for that as both companies beat expectations. Shares jumped for both of the big-box retailers in pre-market trading, but that wasn’t enough to outweigh overall negative sentiment surrounding the trade situation. If you’ve been paying attention to the financial headlines, you probably know pretty well what’s going on with the U.S. and China, so it’s not really worth reiterating every tweet and headline here. Things started to head lower yesterday after President Trump said he’d raise tariffs further if China didn’t agree to a trade deal. Also, Reuters reported overnight that some White House advisers would like to see China agree to large, specific agricultural purchases while the U.S. maintains existing tariffs for future leverage. more…

Target Shorts Take Big Hit Amid Profitable Earnings Season For Retail Short Sellers
Target Shorts Take Big Hit Amid Profitable Earnings Season For Retail Short Sellers

Benzinga Feeds Third-quarter earnings season has been rough for the U.S. retail sector, especially if you happen to be a Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT ) short seller. A data breach at Macy's Inc (NYSE: M ) and a big guidance cut from Kohl's Corporation (NYSE: KSS ) are two of the lowlights of the earnings season for the multiline retail group up to this point. Short sellers have been dialing back their exposure the multiline retail group in 2019, with short interest down $876 million to $7.78 billion year to date. However, S3 Partners analyst Ihor Dusaniwsky said Tuesday short sellers have been returning to the retail group ahead of the critical holiday shopping season. “In the second half of the year we have seen a resurgence of short selling, specifically in Target and Macy’s,” he said. Short sellers got it right on Macy’s this week, but they dropped the ball on Target. Target Saves The Day Target is the single largest … Full story available on Benzinga.com more…
