Gap backs FY17 EPS view $1.95-$2.05, consensus $1.99

The company updated its diluted earnings per share guidance for the first half of fiscal year 2017 to be down mid-single digits when compared with the adjusted diluted earnings per share for the first half of fiscal year 2016, an improvement from the company's previous guidance of down high-single digits. The company noted that foreign currency fluctuations negatively impacted earnings per share for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 by an estimated $0.03, or about 9 percentage points of earnings per share growth. The company continues to expect comparable sales for fiscal year 2017 to be flat to up slightly. Net sales for fiscal year 2017 are expected to be slightly below this range driven by an expected negative impact from foreign currency fluctuations year-over-year. Consensus for FY17 revenue is $15.58B. The effective tax rate was 39.9 percent for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017. The first quarter tax rate was negatively impacted by the adoption of a new accounting standard related to share-based compensation which requires all excess tax benefits and deficiencies to be recognized as a component of the income tax provision. The company continues to expect its fiscal year 2017 effective tax rate to be about 39 percent, including the impact of the new accounting standard related to share-based compensation.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Starbucks (SBUX) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Mark Astrachan saying he views valuation as attractive and expects multiple expansion from accelerating U.S. comparable store sales growth to at least 5%-6% for the next four quarters starting in the June quarter. The analyst said shares have underperformed consumer and restaurant peers over the past 12 months and expects outperformance to be driven by meeting comp expectations. 2. Goldman Sachs (GS) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities with analyst Christopher Wheeler telling investors investors shares are "oversold." The analyst expects the FICC business to bounce back and made just a small reduction in estimates to account for further cost measures. 3. Lear (LEA) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird with analyst David Leiker citing its recent underperformance despite improving fundamentals and a strong global auto backdrop. Leiker raised his price target to $161 from $160 on Lear shares. 4. Discovery (DISCA) upgraded to Neutral from Sell at Citi with analyst Jason Bazinet saying he sees little chance of material downward revisions to consensus earnings estimates. The analyst views the risk/reward as more balanced at current levels and upped his price target for the shares to $30 from $27. 5. Gap (GPS) upgraded to Neutral from Underweight at JPMorgan with analyst Matthew Boss citing the underperformance of the shares over the past 18 months and his fieldwork which suggests stability at Old Navy. The analyst raised his price target for the shares to $24 from $21. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Jefferies calls on Gap to consider alternatives for Banana
While the Gap brand last night reported its second consecutive month of positive comparable sales, and Old Navy remained positive, Banana Republic continued to struggle with comp sales down 4%, Jefferies analyst Randal Konik tells investors in a research note. Management needs to take action, the analyst argues. He believes management should consider strategic alternatives for Banana including a potential sale, massively reducing the store footprint, or shutting down the brand. Konik has a Buy rating on Gap with a $36 price target.
