Deckers Outdoor Corporation (DECK) Downgraded by Zacks Investment Research to “Hold”

Zacks Investment Research cut shares of Deckers Outdoor Corporation (NYSE:DECK) from a buy rating to a hold rating in a report issued on Tuesday morning.

According to Zacks, “Deckers’ focus on expanding its brand assortments, bringing more innovative line of products, targeting consumers digitally via marketing and sturdy eCommerce, and optimizing omni-channel distribution bode well. These initiatives not only aided the stock to outperform the Zacks categorized industry in the past one year but also helped post positive earnings surprise for the sixth straight quarter, as it reported second-quarter fiscal 2017 results. The quarterly earnings also increased 10.8% year over year. However, net sales fell 0.2% from the year-ago period. Management now expects net sales to decline in the band of 1.5–3% during fiscal 2017 and to be flat to down 2% during the third quarter. Deckers’ third quarter earnings projection also disappoints to an extent. The company envisions earnings in the band of $4.16–$4.28 per share for the quarter down from $4.78 in the prior-year period.”
