Piper thinks blocking of Overtime Rule came too late

An Obama-appointed judge in Texas surprisingly blocked the Overtime Rule set to take effect on December 1, Piper Jaffray analysts in the Hardlines Retail & Specialty Products space tell investors in a research note. The analysts say that regardless of whether the injunction is upheld, their research suggests that the ruling comes too late for larger companies to pull back on the planned Overtime Rule change. Payroll and IT systems are likely set to adjust this coming Sunday, they point out. Piper's analysts expect the expense headwinds from the OT rule change for retailers/restaurants to remain in place. The retailers they believe that are most impacted from the rule are Dollar General (DG), Dollar Tree (DLTR), Regis (RGS) and Sally Beauty (SBH). The restaurants they believe are most impacted are Bojangles (BOJA), Starbucks (SBUX), Sonic (SONC), Noodles & Company (NDLS), Potbelly (PBPB), Del Taco (TACO) and Zoe's Kitchen (ZOES).

The Department of Labor's overtime rule change, that will raise the minimum threshold for overtime eligibility from $23,660 to $47,500, could cost Regis $81M on a full year basis, Wissink tells investors in a research note. She lowered her estimates for the company "meaningfully." 3. BofA Merrill Lynch downgraded RLJ Lodging Trust (RLJ) two notches, to Underperform from Buy, and lowered its price target to $18 from $23. Analyst Shaun Kelley is concerned about RLJ's overexposure to Houston, New York City, Denver, and Chicago markets and thinks the loss of veteran CEO Tom Baltimore will take time to replace. The firm also downgraded Hyatt (H), Hersha Hospitality (HT) and Hilton (HLT), all to Neutral from Buy, this morning. 4. Goldman Sachs analyst Ryan Nash double downgraded BankUnited (BKU) to Sell from Buy and lowered his price target for the shares to $34 from $40.

After downgrading Regis Corporation to Underweight earlier today, Piper Jaffray analyst Stephanie Wissink upgraded the stock back to Neutral after speaking to management. The analyst previously believed that the Department of Labor's overtime rule change would cost the company $81M on a full year basis. However, after speaking to the company and learning that store level managers are not salaried, Wissink believes the annual cost of the rule change is likely to be in the $5M-$10M range. The analyst raised her price target to $12 from $8, $1 below her target before today's downgrade. Regis shares remain down 8% to $12.46, but are well off their lows on the day.
