PVH Corp. Price and EPS Surprise
Key Factors to Note
PVH Corp’s Calvin Klein brand has been receiving positive customer response for the core and basic denim styles within Calvin Klein Jeans. Encouragingly, for third-quarter fiscal 2019, management anticipates revenue growth of 1% (up 3% at cc) for the segment.
Further, the company’s Tommy Hilfiger brand has been gaining expanding market share for the past few quarters. For the fiscal third quarter, management expects revenue growth of 5% for the segment.
However, sluggishness in the Heritage Brands segment is expected to have hurt the company’s top line to some extent in the fiscal third quarter. For the to-be-reported quarter, management anticipates revenue decline of 10% for the segment.
Additionally, management expects foreign currency headwinds to hurt the bottom line by 9 cents in the fiscal third quarter. It projects adjusted earnings per share of $2.95-$3.00 for the quarter to be reported.
Moreover, the company has been witnessing soft traffic trends, specifically in Asia, thanks to escalated tariffs and protests in Hong Kong. Persistence of these trends is likely to get reflected in fiscal third-quarter results.
