    Pier 1's stock rockets to pace NYSE gainers

    Shares of Pier 1 Imports Inc. rocketed 34% in afternoon trading Thursday, enough to pace all of the NYSE's gainers, on volume that was more than double the full-day average. The home goods retailer has not released any news, or filed any forms with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Trading volume was about 571,500 shares, or nearly triple the full-day average of about 196,900 shares. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The stock did see some volatility last week, after the company named restructuring expert Robert Riesbeck as its new chief executive, and was on the road to regaining listing compliance with the NYSE. The stock has now soared 149% over the past three months, while the SPDR S&P Retail ETF has climbed 16% and the S&P 500 has rallied 9.9%.

    Party City's stock rocked after surprise loss, revenue miss and guidance cut

    Shares of Party City Holdco Inc. plummeted 41% in premarket trading, putting them on track to open at a record low, after the party goods retailer reported a surprise third-quarter loss, revenue that fell more than expected and cut its full-year outlook, citing negative effects of helium shortages and weak Halloween sales. The company reported late-Wednesday a net loss that widened to $39.7 million, or $3.02 a share, from a loss of $2.0 million, or 3 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Excluding non-recurring items, such as charges relate to its store-optimization program, the adjusted loss per share was 28 cents, compared with the FactSet consensus of breakeven. Revenue fell 2.3% to $540.2 million, below the FactSet consensus of $551.0 million. Branded same-store sales decreased 2.6%, with a 210 basis point (2.1 percentage points) headwind from the helium shortage. Halloween product sales for the quarter and the month of October combined fell 3.2%. The company cut its 2019 guidance ranges for adjusted EPS to 84 cents to 91 cents from $1.26 to $1.36 and for revenue to $2.35 billion to $2.38 billion from $2.40 billion to $2.45 billion. The stock had tumbled 39% year to date through Wednesday, while the SPDR S&P Retail ETF had advanced 9.2% and the S&P 500 had climbed 23%.

    MasterCard SpendingPulse expects 3.1% sales growth in November and December

    MasterCard SpendingPulse forecasts 3.1% holiday sales growth from November 1 to December 24. Online sales are expected to account for 14.6% of total retail sales. This year, there are only 26 shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas day, six days fewer than last year. "A shorter holiday season puts more importance on each shopping day of the season, making the role of the internet important in helping deliver consumers the omnichannel shopping experience they want," said Steve Sadove, senior advisor for Mastercard, in a statement. Other forecasts from groups like AlixPartners and the National Retail Federation are also bullish, though they cite the impact of uncertainty from issues like the trade war. The Amplify Online Retail ETF has gained 7.3% over the past year. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF is down 8.5%. The S&P 500 index is up 13.2% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has rallied 8.7% for the period.

    Victoria's Secret parent L Brands, Macy's, Gap shares tank after downgrades as pressure mounts for holiday season

    Credit Suisse analysts went on a downgraded spree in the retail sector, lowering Macy's Inc. , Gap Inc. and Victoria's Secret parent company L Brands Inc. to underperform from neutral based on analyst forecasts that weak recent trends will continue through the holiday season. L Brands stock slumped 8% after the downgrade, Gap stock slumped 5.8% in Friday trading, and Macy's stock was down 4.3%. Among the factors causing the pressure are a shorter holiday shopping calendar and tariff and tourism uncertainty. Analysts expressed concern, and lowered estimates, across the U.S. softline retailer group, but were especially cautious on these three retailers. Credit Suisse thinks Macy's "same-store sales trends likely running below Street estimates in Q3" with the "earnings-per-share algorithm in much more fragile state today vs. pre-2008 recession." Analysts cut Macy's price target to $12 from $19. Analysts cut Gap's price target to $14 from $20. "We believe the pending spinoff of Old Navy will ultimately prove to have been destructive to equity value, and have low confidence that the company will be able to achieve the offsets to dis-synergy costs laid out in its recent presentation," analysts said. And L Brands' price target was slashed to $14 from $22. "In a tougher U.S. backdrop, we see risk to 2H guide that assumes a fairly quick turn in Victoria's Secret trends with the multitude of challenges facing the company today making it difficult to support the stock on valuation alone," Credit Suisse said. Analysts top picks in the sector are all rated outperform and all had price target hikes: Vans parent VF Corp. , up to $116 from $104; off-price retailer Ross Stores Inc. , up to $130 from $120; Burlington Stores Inc. , up to $245 from $235; and Nike Inc. target price raised to $112 from $105. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF is down nearly 9% over the past year while the S&P 500 index has gained 8% for the period.

    Retail Sales Are Down For Big-Ticket Items, But Expectations Are High For Holiday Spending

    U.S. retail sales were down for the first time in seven months in September, but the move was mostly driven by declines in big-ticket purchases like cars. The Commerce Department said Wednesday that retail sales were down 0.3% in September, led by a 0.9% decline in auto sales. It was the first overall drop in retail sales — and the biggest — since February, and followed a revised 0.6% gain in retail sales in August.

    3 Retail ETFs to Watch After Weaker-Than-Expected Data

    According to the Commerce Department, U.S. retail sales fell for the first time in seven months during the month of September, which could put retail exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on watch. Retail sales fell 0.3% last month as consumers scaled back their spending on items, such as automobiles, building materials and online purchases. “The drop back in retail sales in September was partly driven by a price-related fall back in gasoline prices, but the fact that underlying control group retail sales were unchanged provides another clear sign that consumption growth is slowing,” wrote Michael Pearce, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics.
