  • Abercrombie & Fitch Co. Q4 Profit Beats Estimates, but Revenue Misses; Guidance In-Line; Buyback Accelerated (ANF)

    Teen clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (ANF) on Wednesday posted mixed fourth quarter earnings results, as its profit easily beat analysts' view, but its revenue fell short of expectations. Abercrombie's Earnings and Guidance in Brief
    • Q4 earnings fell 58% from last year to $66.1 million, or 85 cents per share. Excluding one-time charges, however, adjusted net income was $1.34 per share - much higher than Wall Street's view of $1.03.
    • Revenue fell 11.5% from the year-ago period to $1.299 billion, missing analysts' estimates of $1.36 billion.
    • Looking ahead, ANF forecasts full-year 2014 earnings of $2.15 to $2.35 per share, which straddles Wall Street's consensus view of $2.32 per share.
    CEO Commentary CEO Mike Jefferies commented, "2013 was a challenging year, with sales and earnings falling well short of the objectives we set at the beginning of the year. After three years of positive growth in our combined U.S. chain stores plus direct-to-consumer comparable sales metric, that metric turned negative in 2013 against the backdrop of a challenging retail environment, particularly in the teen space. It is important that we return to positive growth, particularly in our core U.S. business, and the steps we are taking as we execute against our long-range strategic plan should put us in a position to achieve this goal. "As we look forward to 2014, there is much work ahead of us, but we are encouraged by the progress we are making as we continue to aggressively execute against our long-range plan objectives, which we believe will generate meaningful improvements in our business, and create significant value for shareholders." ANF's Dividend Remains Unchanged, but Buybacks Accelerated Earlier this month, Abercrombie announced its latest dividend payout of 20 cents per share, marking the fifth consecutive quarter of maintaining that same payout. Prior to raising its dividend to 20 cents in early 2013, the company had gone 30 consecutive quarters with the same payout. ANF noted in its earnings release that its board of directors approved a $150 million accelerated share buyback plan, to be executed during the first quarter of 2014. These purchases will be made pursuant to the company's existing buyback plan authorization of 16.3 million shares. Given Abercrombie's weak history of dividend raises, the accelerated buyback announcement, and the ongoing turnaround plan, dividend investors should not expect ANF to raise its quarterly payout any time soon. Stock Performance ANF shares have risen 9% since the beginning of 2014, easily outpacing the S&P 500, which is about flat on the year thus far. The stock gained an additional $2.09, or 5.8%, in pre-market trading Wednesday on the heels of its latest earnings report.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of ANF currently offer a 2.22% dividend yield, based on Tuesday's closing price of $35.99 and the stock's annualized dividend payout of 80 cents per share. Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (ANF) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.
