New wearables could enable Fossil to hit high end of guidance, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that the successful launch of Fossil's (FOSL) new wearables collection, including the Michael Kors (KORS) Access Line, could enable Fossil to hit the high end of its Q3 guidance range. Wells says that the Access Line's success could lift the company's Q2 sales by $12M-$14M. However, the firm warns that the outlook for Michael Kors Access for the holiday season is "cloudy," since the products' success last quarter was party due to beating the Apple (AAPL) Watch 2 to market by nearly two weeks. Now that Apple's new watch has been released, the growth of Fossil made watches "could moderate substantially," the firm warns. Nonetheless, it raised its price target on Fossil to $25-$27 from $23-$25 and on Michael Kors to $50-$52 from $48-$50. However, it keeps Market Perform ratings on both stocks.
