Stocks to Watch: Best Buy, Urban Outfitters (Update 2)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Best Buy (BBY - Get Report), the electronics retailer, confirmed its fiscal-year adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance range of $3.35 to $3.65 after posting fiscal third-quarter profit of 47 cents a share on revenue of $12.10 billion.

Analysts were expecting earnings of 51 cents a share on revenue of $12.14 billion.

The company reported domestic comparable-store sales growth of almost 1%.

Shares were dropping 9.2% to $25.50.


Apparel retailer Urban Outfitters (URBN - Get Report) announced in a regulatory filing that its retail same-store sales were up in the mid-single digits so far in the fourth quarter.

Shares were surging 11.7% to $29.55.


Pantry (PTRY) reported fourth-quarter earnings of 37 cents a share compared with the average analyst estimate of 55 cents.

Southwest (LUV - Get Report) will become the launch customer for the new Boeing (BA - Get Report) 737 MAX, the companies said Tuesday.

Boeing shares were up 0.9% to $71.50.


AT&T (T - Get Report) is considering ways to restructure its proposed $39 billion acquisition of T-Mobile USA after a judge set a Jan. 18 hearing about the future of the merger.

The Justice Department opposes the deal that brings together the No. 2 and No. wireless companies in the U.S. because of antitrust concerns.

Shares were up 0.4% to $24.09.
