Chico's raises Q4 SSS view to (7%)-(5%) from negative high single-digits

Based on results to date, the Company anticipates fourth quarter total comparable sales in the negative 5% to negative 7% range, an improvement on its previous outlook of negative high single-digits. As previously announced, approximately $30 million in sales from the 53rd week of fiscal 2017 are not included in the comparable sales calculation for the Company's outlook. The Company continues to expect fourth quarter gross margin rate to be approximately flat to up slightly, in line with its previous outlook. SG&A expenses for the fourth quarter are expected to be approximately flat to last year, after incorporating costs from the 53rd week.

DOWNGRADE

Chico's downgraded to Peer Perform at Wolfe Research
As previously reported, Wolfe Research downgraded Chico's to Peer Perform from Outperform following the Q1 report. The analyst said sales-to-inventory growth turned negative in the quarter, sees a slow recovery in fixing industry excess supply, and potential margin pressures as they redirect product direction.

Chico's downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill analyst Lorraine Hutchinson downgraded Chico's to Underperform and cut its price target to $7.50 from $8.50 saying the premium multiple is unwarranted. The analyst still expects operating margin declines due to weak sales and promotional pressures and said the recent run in shares is a function of a broader retail rally rather than improving fundamentals.

Neutral
Chico's downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi
Citi analyst Paul Lejuez downgraded Chico's FAS (CHS) to Neutral and cut his price target for the shares to $8 from $10. The first half of 2017 has been a "big disappointment" with "no turnaround in sight," Lejuez tells investors in a research note. He believes the "sudden sales slowdown" at competitor J.Jill (JILL) "casts a darker cloud on the women's segment as a whole."
