Urban Outfitters CEO says Q2 was 'difficult quarter' for the company

Urban Outfitter CEO Richard Hayne said, "we expect Q3 gross margins to back off from the same period last year in spite of what we believe will be positive comp sales... Q3 should bring improved comps driven by improved assortments in the apparel category." Urban Outfitters CFO Francis Conforti said he believes "markdown rates for Q3 could exceed last year's historically low rates and end up more similar to the average Q3 rates over the last five years." Conforti added, "If you look into Q3, we do believe that we could deleverage by roughly 200 basis points." Comments taken from the Urban Outfitters Q2 earnings conference call.

Buy
Jefferies recommends buying Urban Outfitters on fundamentals, easing compares
Jefferies analyst Janine Stichter lowered her price target for Urban Outfitters to $40 from $45 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares following the company's Q1 results. Comps came in ahead of expectations across all banners, notably with Anthropologie exceeding estimates by 190 basis points, Stichter tells investors in a research note. The analyst, while admitting Urban's gross margin fell short of expectations, tells investors to buy the stock on "solid" fundamentals, easing compares in the second half of the year and the company's strategic investments.

Neutral
Urban Outfitters price target lowered to $28 from $31 at MKM Partners
MKM Partners analyst Roxanne Meyer lowered her price target on Urban Outfitters to $28 and kept her Neutral rating, saying its Q1 earnings beat was driven in part by a lower tax rate and lower than expected SG&A expense. The analyst notes that the company's trends showed "significant" improvement as the quarter progressed, but also points to the worse than expected apparel comps and the 33% decline in its retail segment operating profit during the quarter. Meyer adds that the Urban Outfitters' expectations of improvement in the current quarter are not a given since last year's compares are tough and any improvement will depend on the typically volatile fall season selling.

Neutral
Urban Outfitters downgraded to Neutral from Buy at B. Riley FBR
B. Riley FBR analyst Susan Anderson downgraded Urban Outfitters to Neutral from Buy and lowered her price target for the shares to $23 from $38. On its Q1 earnings call, management said they expected sales will start to improve with new back-to-school product in July and into August, Anderson tells investors in a research note. However, her channel checks show continued, elevated year-over-year promotions in July and thus far in August for both Anthropology and the namesake brand. This leads Anderson to believe that Urban Outfitters' sales have not improved from the weaker calendar Q2. She views the company as most at risk in the Specialty Retail & Apparel space for lower second half of 2019 margins as promos continue.
