Five Below reports Holiday Period sales up 13.4% at $596.6M, SSS down 2.6%

Five Below announced net sales results for the quarter-to-date period from November 3, 2019 through January 4, 2020 . The company announced that net sales for the Holiday Period increased by 13.4% to $596.6 million from $526.1 million in the comparable nine-week period from November 4, 2018 to January 5, 2019. Comparable sales for the Holiday Period decreased by 2.6%. CEO Joel Anderson states: "While our comparable sales during key holiday selling periods were positive, they were not strong enough to overcome the headwind of six fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and overall sales did not meet our expectations. Despite the sales shortfall, strong inventory management and disciplined cost control has us on track to end the quarter with gross margin in line with our expectations and to deliver earnings per share near the low end of our previous guidance range. Looking ahead, we are pleased to announce 180 planned new stores for 2020. As we continue to innovate, we will incorporate a Ten Below zone in the majority of these new stores as well as our remodels. We are also excited to announce the acquisition of a robust e-commerce platform, fulfillment operation and certain other assets of Hollar.com, which will expand our digital capabilities."

Big Lots remains a 'show-me story', says Loop Capital
Loop Capital analyst Anthony Chukumba keeps his Hold rating and $25 price target on Big Lots (BIG) after its Q3 results, noting that while earnings topped expectations and the management was optimistic about the holiday season, the company's comps came in negative for the first time in five quarters. With no material improvement anticipated in Q4, the analyst contends that Big Lots remains a "show me" story, particularly following Friday's 32% jump in the stock price. For investors seeking exposure to deep discount retailing space, Chukumba recommends shares of Dollar General (DG) and Five Below (FIVE).

Gordon Haskett shakes up 'Shades of Grey' portfolio with downgrades, upgrade
Gordon Haskett analysts Chuck Grom, John Parke, and Garrett Greenblatt have updated the firm's 'Shades of Grey' portfolio by downgrading four stocks -- Dollar Tree (DLTR) to Reduce from Accumulate, Five Below (FIVE) to Accumulate from Buy, BJ's (BJ) to Hold from Buy, and Tractor Supply (TSCO) to Accumulate from Buy -- and upgrading one stock -- Nordstrom (JWN) to Accumulate from Hold. They also called Dollar General (DG), Target (TGT), and Walmart (WMT) their top ideas. The analysts said the recalibrations were made "very cautiously" and receommended leaning into the new year slowly until more data is released and we have a better grasp on the Q4 and holiday results, 2020 guidance, and overall positioning. The analysts added that they are "sticking to [their] playbook, which is rooted in identifying companies in good retail verticals with strong company-specific comp/GPM drivers to support profitable market share gains."

Guggenheim analyst Steven Forbes raised his price target for Best Buy (BBY) to $100 from $90 and added the shares to his firm's Best Idea list. In the Consumer space, the analyst prefers companies with "solid, but reasonable," expectations, "compelling" relative EBITDA multiples, and idiosyncratic potential catalysts. His picks for 2020 include Best Buy, Dollar Tree (DLTR), Five Below (FIVE), Lowe's (LOW), Performance Food Group (PFGC) and RH (RH).
