Urban Outfitters Given In-Line Rating at Morgan Stanley (URBN)
The analysts wrote, “Flattish 2QTD comp, in-line with MS and the Street: We think UO’s comp slightly improved to -9% compared to 1Q’s -12% but was promotionally driven. UO’s e-mail marketing and creative content look markedly improved (quicker and easier to fix), in our view, but in-store progress is slower. URBN 2Q GM guidance implies UO will utilize promotions through 2Q to liquidate less compelling items in the assortment and make room for new Fall product.”
