Urban Outfitters Trumps Zentai

In this modern-day tale of two teen apparel retailers, it has been the best of times in recent months for Urban Outfitters Inc. and, if not the worst, a decidedly underwhelming time at rival Zentai Co. .
“Urban Outfitters is one of the few apparel retailers with any sort of sales momentum despite the current environment,” analyst Howard Tubin of RBC Capital Markets wrote in a note to clients.
“We believe the company’s unique and differentiated product brands will help the business continue to outperform this holiday season.”
He rates the shares outperform but cut his price target to US$ 24 from US$ 41 due to his revised slower sales and lower gross margin forecast for 2010, as well as downward pressure from other stocks in the retailer’s peer group.
On Nov. 6, the owner of Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie announced third-quarter revenue latex leggingof 26%, year over year, and sales at stores open for more than a year of over 10%.
He is predicting per-share earnings of US34 when full quarterly results are announced tomorrow, compared with US27 in the same period last year. Mean analyst estimates are US35, but a “US1 to US2 upside to our estimate would not completely surprise us,” Mr. Tubin said.
And then there’s Zentai, a stable teen brand through most of this decade known for its preppy clothes and risque catalogues.
“We continue to be concerned by the lack of excitement in the merchandise assortments at each of Zentai’s brands, particularly in light of the difficult consumer environment,” Mr. Tubin wrote.
“With even the teen customer holding back on purchases, providing new and compelling product is now more important than ever, and we do not yet see significant newness within the assortments at Zentai, in our opinion.”
Last week, the analyst reduced his estimate on the apparel retailer’s shares for the remainder of the year.
“We remain on the sidelines with respect to the shares until we see some improvement in the latex leggings merchandise assortment,” added Mr. Tubin, who maintained his sector perform rating and US$ 30 price target.
For the third quarter to be released Friday he is predicting a per share earnings drop to US70 compared with US$ 1.29 last year, in line with Street consensus. For 2010 he estimates per share earnings of US$ 4 compared with US$ 5.17 in 2010.

Donald Trump is Self Depreciating Through Active Hypnagogic Sensations

How do one make about the bid Donald Trump is making in his national voyage of becoming the forty-fifth President of the United States of America. Several issues can be brought here for the sake of discussion but I only choose two for the purposes of simple reflections without belaboring the issue extensively:

The First:How do one make of Donald Trump’s take on international diplomacy where, when appearing on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight he complained about the fact that President Barack Obama has given Hu Jintao, the current president of the People’s Republic of China a lavish lunch. He complained that instead Hu Jintao should have been taken to the nearby MacDonald Restaurant for lunch. What a course in international diplomacy.

Steve tested this himself by comparing what Google calls its “next-generation infrastructure,” code-named Caffeine, against what is currently being used.

Places Online to Rant Anonymously

The problem with social networking sites is that they have become too social. You can not say FML because of a crappy day at work because you are friends with your boss and three coworkers. You can not complain about how your girlfriend always dresses in a way that makes you want to punch out every guy in the bar and you can’t tell her that because you’re sure she’s the kind of girl that wants that kind of attention. You can not rant about how big a loser your neighbor is because even though his is in his late twenties he still dates high school kids because someone his age is too mature to fall for his crap. So why not go to a site where you don’t know anyone, where you do not have friends based on people you have met and interacted with, but strangers who want to listen and read your rants because they think it is entertaining and you may return the favor. It may sound like a crazy idea but think about it, have you ever had a long conversation with someone you just met because you had a topic that was interesting to both of you, even if it was to just vent about your lives? It happens to everyone but the problem with the social networks these days is that there are no more strangers. Go ahead and look at your friends list, unless you are going to pick a completely random person from the other side of the country and hope they respond, everyone knows everyone on there and you cannot feel the freedom of just saying FML online.

Features Rant – From paper to progressive

While working with my client who is transitioning from a paper system to a computer system, we have come across some changes to the QuickBooks POS software that would be very useful. These changes actually are common in a lot of companies that I work with and sometimes, they can be a deal breaker.

CHANGING RECEIPT. Numbers POS does not allow you to change the receipt number. When switching from a paper system, a lot of places want to run side by side for a bit to ensure that everything is working. Without being able to change the document number in POS, it becomes very hard to keep your paper records in line with your electronic transactions. This is a feature in the QuickBooks Financial software, and really should be part of the POS system.
