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

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Best Buy (BBY), 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) 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.

Boeing shares were up 0.9% to $71.50.


AT&T (T) 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.

Most analysts think the deal is dead.

"We are actively considering whether and how to revise our current transaction to achieve the necessary regulatory approvals," AT&T said Monday.

AT&T shares were up 0.4% to $29.12.


Intel (INTC) closed 4% lower Monday to $24 after it lowered its fourth-quarter revenue forecast, citing hard disk drive shortages.

Shares were up 0.4% to $24.09.
