Pier 1 Imports CEO says disappointing Q2 reflects 'execution challenges'

CEO Alasdair James said: "We are disappointed in our results for the second quarter, which primarily reflect execution challenges as we prepared for and implemented our August brand re-launch. We are in the very early stages of the multi-year 'New Day' strategic plan we announced in April, and while we remain confident that our plan is the right course for Pier 1, it is now clear that our initiatives are taking longer than expected to gain traction. Our marketing program did not drive the level of traffic we had anticipated, and we experienced delays in getting certain new products into our stores. Although we now expect sales to turn positive and accelerate later than planned, we are encouraged by early signs of improvement in some of our key customer metrics in recent weeks, including conversion and growth in new, retained and reactivated customers. We also continue to receive positive feedback from customers about our new store environment. Our team has been working tirelessly to implement our 'New Day' strategic plan, but there are clearly areas where we need to sharpen our execution moving forward."

Pier 1 Imports' back-half weighted guidance 'concerning,' says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Chukumba lowered his price target on Pier 1 Imports to $2 from $3 and maintained a Hold rating after the company reported Q1 results, telling investors in a research note that there was nothing in the company's performance during the quarter that gave him any indication it is going to "turn the corner" any time soon. Additionally, the analyst says he is "concerned" that the company's FY18 guidance is more back-half weighted than he originally expected, and that the company's plans to introduce more modern merchandise gives him "bad memories" of the last time it tried a similar strategy.

Pier 1 Imports price target lowered to $3 at Loop Capital following Analyst Day
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba lowered his price target on Pier 1 to $3 from $4 and kept his Hold rating. The analyst contends that the management presented a "comprehensive" turnaround strategy but prefers to see more concrete signs of progress before turning more constructive on the stock. Chukumba still sees a number of risks associated with the stock such as poor consumer response to Pier 1's merchandise, heightened competition from online furnishing retailers, and further margin pressure from discounting.

E-Commerce continues to take channel share, says Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Seth Basham notes that e-Commerce continues to take channel share from bricks and mortar, accounting for an estimated 20% of holiday sales. While retailers such as Williams-Sonoma (WSM), Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) and Pier 1 Imports (PIR) continue to adapt, he believes they not only continue to lose share to online retailers including Amazon.com (AMZN) and Wayfair (W), but also face increasing costs of serving omnichannel shoppers. Mattress retail remains mixed, with Mattress Firm's recent improving sales trends and financing an incremental negative for Tempur Sealy (TPX).
