Urban Outfitters, Broadsoft: After-Hours Trading

Updated to add Exelixis, Casey's General Stores.

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Urban Outfitters (URBN - Get Report) was getting hit hard in extended trades on Monday after the Philadelphia-based specialty retailer's fourth-quarter earnings fell short of Wall Street's expectations.

The company, whose brands include Anthropologie and Free People in addition to its namesake stores, posted a profit of $75.2 million, or 45 cents a share, on sales of $668.4 million for the three months ended Jan. 31. In the same period a year earlier, it earned $77.7 million, or 45 cents a share, on sales of $588.5 million. The average estimate of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters was for earnings of 52 cents a share in the latest quarter on sales of $676.3 million.



The stock was last quoted at $33.33, down 12.2%, on volume of nearly 1.4 million, according to Nasdaq.com. Based on a regular session close at $37.99, the shares were up roughly 10% in the past year, a move that reflects a rise of more than 30% since scraping a 52-week low of $29.03 on Oct. 21.

Urban Outfitters said comparable retail segment net sales, which includes its direct-to-consumer operations, rose 4% in the quarter; although same-store sales dipped 2%. The company also noted a decline of 208 basis points in gross margins during the quarter, and cited increased markdowns to clear seasonal inventory and higher shipping costs stemming from a boost in international direct sales as the culprits.

The 13% earnings shortfall in the latest quarter broke a streak of seven straight quarters of beating the average analysts' estimate for Urban Outfitters, which at current levels trades at a forward price-to-earnings multiple of 19.5X based on next year's consensus profit view of $1.95 a share.

Wall Street was modestly bullish on the stock ahead of the report with 15 of the 28 analysts covering the shares at either strong buy (9) or buy (6). The median 12-month price target sits at $40.

Broadsoft

Shares of Broadsoft (BSFT - Get Report) leapt in after-hours action after the Gaithersburg, Md.-based maker of networking software reported strong earnings and revenue growth for its fiscal fourth quarter. The stock was last quoted at $41.01, up 17.5%, on volume of nearly 160,000, according to Nasdaq.com.
