Ethan Allen reports Q4 preliminary EPS 41c-42c, consensus 50c

Net sales and projected earnings for the fourth quarter, ending June 30, were impacted by several factors, including very tough comparatives with the prior year quarter when retail net sales increased 7.6%, wholesale net sales increased 9.6%, and adjusted EPS increased 32.6%. Net sales in the prior year quarter also reflected shipments of new product introductions, which also resulted in stronger margins at the wholesale level. Additionally, during the current year fourth quarter, national advertising increased 27.5% over the prior year period, reflecting the Company's continued focus on brand building and driving traffic and sales."We look forward to discussing our progress and initiatives at the forthcoming Investor Meeting," said Farooq Kathwari, Chairman and CEO of Ethan Allen. "Fiscal 2017 was a 'year of action' where we completed many initiatives and also launched major new initiatives. Topics of the meeting will include the repositioning of our offerings, our expanded marketing, investments in new Design Centers around the country, investments in technology, the launch of the Ethan Allen Disney magical home program and the recent launch of the 'Ethan Allen design studio' on Amazon."Mr. Kathwari added, "During our fourth quarter, retail written orders in April decreased 7.1% and then progressively increased by 7.0% in May and 6.9% in June, resulting in a 1.9% increase for the quarter compared to the same period in the prior year. So far in July, written orders have continued a strong positive trend."

DOWNGRADE

Neutral
Ethan Allen downgraded to Neutral at Dougherty
As previously reported, Dougherty downgraded Ethan Allen to Neutral from Buy following Q2 results. Analyst Jeremy Hamblin changed his views given a lack of visbility on the timing and impact on sales catalysts, including Disney Collection launch and US State Department contract, fewer new product introductions, tough 2H 17 comps, and significant downside risk to consensus FY17 and FY18 estimates.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo with analyst Larry Biegelsen saying the company's "disappointing" 2017 revenue guidance suggests its pharma business is facing more headwinds than he expected. J&J guided to underlying sales growth in 2017 of 3.0%-3.5%, which is a "sharp deceleration" from 7.4% underlying growth in 2016, Biegelsen tells investors in a research note. Biegelsen downgraded Johnson & Johnson before the company's announced acquisition of Actelion (ALIOF). He wrote, though, that any deal wouldn't likely close until late 2017. 2. United Technologies (UTX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus with analyst John Eade citing valuation. 3. Ethan Allen (ETH) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Dougherty with analyst Jeremy Hamblin changing his views given a lack of visibility on the timing and impact on sales catalysts, including Disney Collection launch and US State Department contract, fewer new product introductions, tough second half of 2017 comps, and significant downside risk to consensus fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2018 estimates. 4. Hasbro (HAS) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Monness Crespi. 5. Mattel (MAT) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at MKM Partners with analyst Eric Handler saying the turnaround story has lost momentum as a slower than expected retail environment, fewer product reorders, and increased promotional activity resulted in disappointing year-end results. Handler expects foreign exchange headwinds, rising input costs, and an unfavorable product mix to continue into 2017. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

Strong Buy
Ethan Allen upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James
Raymond James analyst Budd Bugatch double upgraded Ethan Allen to Strong Buy from Market Perform saying sales comparisons get easier through 2017 while the retailer's remerchandising effort is behind it, thereby lowering the clearance markdowns. The analyst has a $36 price target for the shares.

UPGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Disney (DIS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Guggenheim with analyst Michael Morris upgraded saying that he still sees strong potential upside despite the stock's move off its lows as the company enters another expansion cycle for its film, consumer products and parks businesses. The analyst is more cautious on the Networks business, both for Disney and the broader industry, but thinks that is reflected already in Disney shares. Morris raised his price target on Disney shares to $128 from $118. 2. Dick's Sporting (DKS) upgraded to Outperform from Peer Perform at Wolfe Research. 3. Quest Diagnostics (DGX) upgraded to Conviction Buy from Buy at Goldman with analyst Isaac Ro saying the company should be a key beneficiary as the U.S. healthcare system shifts the cost burden to the individual and creates price transparency for the first time. 4. Olympic Steel (ZEUS) and Reliance Steel (RS) were upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Macquarie, while Worthington (WOR) was upgraded to Neutral from Underperform. 5. Ethan Allen (ETH) upgraded to Strong Buy from Market Perform at Raymond James with analyst Budd Bugatch double upgrading the company saying sales comparisons get easier through 2017 while the retailer's remerchandising effort is behind it, thereby lowering the clearance markdowns.
