Ann Taylor parent Ascena shares drop 21% after 'fashion missteps' sink earnings
Ascena Retail Group Inc. shares are down 21% in Tuesday trading after the apparel company said "fashion missteps" derailed its first-quarter earnings. Ascena's portfolio of brands includes Ann Taylor, Maurices and Dressbarn. "We were unable to capitalize on the improving macro traffic trends due to fashion missteps that we cannot afford in today's environment," said Chief Executive David Jaffe on the earnings call, according to a FactSet transcript. Still, KeyBanc Capital Markets analysts led by Edward Yruma are optimistic. "Management is showing a sense of urgency regarding execution and sequentially improving traffic could provide a more favorable backdrop," analysts wrote in a note. Analysts highlight cost reduction opportunities and internal restructuring. "We maintain that intense focus on cost savings is prudent in a difficult environment," the note said. Ascena shares are down more than 71% for the past year while the S&P 500 index is up 20.1% for the period.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Chemours stock erases sharp early loss to close higher after 5-fold dividend hike, new stock buyback plan
Shares of Chemours Co. used a late rally to close up 0.9% Friday, erasing earlier sharp losses, after the chemistry-based technology company announced a more than five-fold increase in its dividend and a new share repurchase agreement at its first investor day since the spinoff from Dupont. The company raised its quarterly dividend to 17 cents a share from 3 cents, payable March 15 to shareholders of record on Feb. 15. The company also authorized a $500 million share buyback program, which extends through 2020. Based on Friday's closing price of $51.84, that could represent about 5.2% of the shares outstanding. The company said the new capital allocation strategy comes after the completion of transformation plan, which helped lower its debt position to a leverage ratio of two-times adjusted EBITDA, below its previously-announced leverage target of three-times. Earlier Friday, the stock fell as much as 5.2%, as the company's 2018 free cash flow target of $500 million to $600 million was below some analyst expectations. The stock has now tacked on 3.7% over the past three months, but has more than doubled year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 18% this year.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Lyft announces plan to launch in Toronto in December
Ride-sharing service Lyft said Monday it is planning to launch in Toronto in December in its first foray outside of the U.S. The company and Uber rival announced the news in a blog posting.

Priceline's stock plunges toward biggest-ever price decline after 'typical' downbeat guidance
Shares of Priceline Group Inc. plunged 11% in morning trade Tuesday, and were on track to suffer their biggest-ever price decline, as investors and analysts failed to give the online travel service company a pass for its usual practice of providing downbeat earnings guidance. The stock's price decline of $210.01 is the biggest since Priceline went public in March 1999, passing the previous record of $158.06 suffered on June 24, 2016. It was on track to close below the $1,700 mark for the first time since Feb. 27, 2017. Priceline reported late Monday third-quarter earnings and revenue that beat expectations, but provided a fourth-quarter EPS outlook that was below the FactSet consensus. But that was the fourth-straight quarter that guidance was below expectations, and the 13th quarter of the past 15 quarters. RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney said Priceline's "conservatism" was "typical." Still, 13 of 31 analysts surveyed by FactSet cut their price targets, moving the average target down to $2.021.07 from $2,116.5 at the end of October. Priceline's stock has still gained 15.6% year to date, while the S&P 500 has climbed 15.7%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
