    J.C. Penney shares sink after profit warning

    J.C. Penney Co. Inc. shares sank 6.6% in Friday premarket trading after the retailer revised its third-quarter guidance below estimates and issued a profit warning for both the third quarter and full year. The company now expects same-store sales to increase in the range of 0.6% to 0.8%, and adjusted losses per share are expected to be in the range of 40 cents to 45 cents. The FactSet consensus is for a same-store sales growth of 0.1% and a 17-cents loss per share. Fiscal full-year 2017 same-store sales are now expected to be flat to down 1% and adjusted earnings are expected to be 2 cents to 8 cents. The previous guidance was for same-store sales from a 1% decline to 1% growth and adjusted EPS of 40 cents to 65 cents. The FactSet consensus is for a same-store sales decline of 0.9% and EPS of 42 cents. The company took steps to sell off "slow-moving" merchandise, primarily across the women's apparel department, according to a statement from Chief Executive Marvin Ellison. The move gave a boost to sales in September and October, but hurt cost of goods sold and earnings in the short-term, he said. The company is also revising its expenses in order to align them with the same-store sales growth in appliances and omnichannel sales. J.C. Penney will announce third-quarter results on Nov. 10 before the opening bell.

    Target's price cuts on 'thousands' of items sinks retailer stocks

    Retailer stocks took a midday dive Friday, after Target Corp. said on its website that it had "lowered prices on thousands of items," fueling concerns over a price war amid a lackluster sales environment. Target's stock was down about 1.5% just before its announcement, but losses widened to 3.2% in afternoon trade. The discount retailer said the price cuts are an attempt to end customer uncertainty over the timing of discounts on certain products. "We want our guests to feel a sense of satisfaction every time they shop at Target," Chief Merchandising Officer Mark Tritton said in a statement. "Part of that is removing the guesswork to ensure they feel confident they're getting a great, low price every day." Shares of rival Wal-Mart Stores Inc. went from down 1.2% just before Target's announcement to down 2%. Elsewhere, shares of Kohl's Corp. shed 1%, J.C. Penney Co. Inc. gave up 1.7%, Macy's Inc. lost 1.4% and Nordstrom Inc. fell 0.5%. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF went from a loss of 0.4% to a decline of 1.3%, before recovering to be down 0.8%. Target's stock has tumbled 21.5% year to date, while the retail ETF has lost 9.0% and the S&P 500 has gained 10.1%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
