(CTRN) Citi Trends Incorporated – Bear of the Day

Citi Trends, Inc. (CTRN) falling comparable store sales, coupled with rising operating expenses battered the third-quarter 2011 results. The company incurred a quarterly loss of $0.38 per share that broadened from the prior-period loss of $0.03. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the quarter was a loss of $0.37 per share.

Further, due to uncertainty hovering around sales given the global economic unrest, the company rolled back its earnings guidance range of $1.25 to $1.35 per share for fiscal 2011. The company decided not to provide any guidelines unless it finds any near-term catalysts to drive sales.

Intense competition from other retailers, seasonal nature of business and risks associated with sourcing merchandise from developing countries may further undermine the company’s future growth prospects. Currently, we are maintaining a long-term Underperform recommendation on the stock.
