Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of sportswear specialist G-III Apparel Group
So what: This marks the second straight quarter in which G-III has whiffed on its previous guidance, so investors are naturally growing skeptical over management's ability to meet targets. The company has been forced to offer customers significant margin-pressuring discounts in recent months, suggesting that the market remains a lot softer than many investors think.
Now what: Don't expect things to turn around anytime soon. G-III now sees full-year earnings of just $3.05 to $3.15 per share, well below the average analyst estimate of $3.21 per share. Of course, with the stock now down more than 45% since the end of April, and trading at a substantial P/E discount to rivals Columbia Sportswear
