Liquidity Services Inc. Analyst Notes 

On April 3, 2014, Liquidity Services Inc. (Liquidity Services) announced that it withdrew from the live auction bidding for a contract with the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to purchase, manage and sell non-rolling stock surplus assets of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The announcement came a day after the Company informed that it emerged as apparent high bidder for the contract with a bid equal to 4.35% of the DoD's original acquisition value (OAV). Citing the reason for withdrawal from the bidding, the Company stated that "Bidding reached a level that Liquidity Services determined would be economically unsustainable under the terms of the new contract, jeopardizing the high level of service it has historically provided the agency client." The stock tanked 11.98% following the announcement on April 3, 2014, to close at $18.36, taking the total decline to 29.52% for last three trading sessions. Since the contracting process is not complete yet, the Company refrained from providing a revised future earnings guidance, but expects the price for the non-rolling stock contract is expected to increase from 1.8% to 4.35% of OAV, resulting in significantly higher Cost of Goods Sold in FY 2015 and beyond.

Urban Outfitters Inc. Analyst Notes 

On April 2, 2014, the stock of Urban Outfitters Inc. (Urban Outfitters) gained 3.98% to end the session at $38.11, after the Company released its Q1 FY 2015 sales outlook in a document filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Company stated that "thus far during the first quarter of fiscal 2015, comparable Retail segment net sales are low single-digit negative." In its Q4 FY 2014 financial results, the Company had issued a cautious stance about the performance in Q1 FY 2015, mainly due to challenges being faced by its Urban Outfitters brand. Comparable Retail segment net sales, which include comparable direct-to-consumer channel, increased just 1% in Q4 FY 2014, weighed down by 9% decline in Urban Outfitters. Also, the Company stated that during fiscal 2015, it plans to construct and open approximately 35 to 40 new stores and renovate certain existing stores.
