Guess CEO says 'retail environment remains challenging' in Americas

Victor Herrero, CEO, commented, "While I recognize the challenges we are facing in the Americas, I am thrilled that, due to our various revenue enhancement initiatives, our third quarter revenues increased by 3%. We enjoyed strong double digit growth in Europe and in Asia, and we remain focused on improving our profitability in North America. As we reach the end of our transition year, I look forward to fiscal year 2018 with tremendous anticipation and excitement." Herrero continued, "Third quarter earnings finished at the low-end of our guidance. Overall we are pleased with the performance of our international businesses. In Europe, our revenues were up 16% driven by new store openings and another strong quarter of positive comp store sales. Our European wholesale order book for Spring Summer finished up 1%, marking the second consecutive season of growth in the European wholesale business. Turning to Asia, revenues finished up 10% driven by new store openings and positive comp store sales in China." Herrero continued, "In the Americas, where the retail environment remains challenging, we are more than ever focused on improving the profitability of our retail business. In order to do so, we have identified a four point plan that we believe will drive value for our business: (1) continue to negotiate rent reductions whenever possible, (2) close unprofitable stores upon lease kick-out or expiration unless new rent terms make them profitable, (3) continue to implement supply chain initiatives including vendor consolidation, fabric platforming and source country diversification and (4) enhance our digital capabilities to help set ourselves apart from other retailers." Herrero concluded, "As for the outlook for the current fiscal year, our previous full year guidance assumed better comps and gross margins in the Americas Retail segment for the fourth quarter than we are now expecting based on our third quarter results and trends so far in the fourth quarter. This is the main driver of the change in company guidance."

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Super Micro Computer (SMCI) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel and to Neutral from Buy at DA Davidson. DA Davidson downgraded the stock saying the company's miss is its fourth in the last six quarters and its second in a row. The firm is concerned by the deterioration in the company's profitability. 2. Crown Castle (CCI) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG with the firm citing valuation. 3. Michaels (MIK) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Christopher Horvers saying he views the current valuation as full relative to the company's expected pace of earnings growth. The analyst removed the shares from his firm's Analyst Focus List. 4. Hyatt (H) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Stifel with the firm cited valuation, decelerating U.S. RevPAR, and a lack of catalysts for the lodging sector. 5. Guess (GES) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Erinn Murphy saying she's "incrementally wary" on the company's turnaround plan to get to 7.5% in EBIT by 2018.

Guess upgraded to Buy with sale seen as eventual 'end game' at B. Riley
B. Riley analyst Jeff Van Sinderen upgraded Guess to Buy from Neutral following the company's Q2 earnings report and raised his price target on the shares to $21 from $16, noting that the company raised the low end of its earnings guidance for this fiscal year. Van Sinderen believes the "end game" for Guess will be a sale of the company, he tells investors in his post-earnings research note.

Piper stays Underweight on Guess after 'other income' drives earnings beat
Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy reiterates her Underweight rating on Guess despite its better than expected second quarter report, noting that much of its earnings beat came from "other income." While acknowledging the shares will likely rise following the "less worse" than feared results and guidance, Murphy says she is still concerned by the execution risk of adding 55 new stores in Europe and 65 new stores in Asia, the company's heightened inventory compared to its sales and the fact that she thinks management's guidance still seems aggressive. Murphy keeps a $12 price target on Guess shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Netflix (NFLX) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at William Blair with analysts led by Ralph Schackart citing its belief the long term risk/reward is favorable. 2. L-3 Communications (LLL) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Seth Seifman saying L-3's turnaround is already underway but sees further free-cash-flow growth and further valuation upside. 3. Guess (GES) upgraded to Buy from Neutral with analyst Jeff Van Sinderen saying he believes the "end game" for Guess will be a sale of the company. 4. Transocean (RIG) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst Scott Gruber saying the company has exceeded cost reductions while the backlog remains superior to peers. 5. Primoris (PRIM) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Seaport Global with analyst Ryan Cassil saying there are fairly low expectations assumed in management's guidance of 90c-$1.10 and the possibility of project starts ahead of management's internal forecast. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
