"For UO, benefits of diversification run their course," Siegel wrote. "For FY14F, we believe the company will see continuing strength out of the two outperformers, whereas we project a -2.5% FY14F comp for UO. Although only a 4bps improvement to LY, we believe the increase in GMs in the current environment is a relative win, driven by better results at Anthro/Free People rather with ongoing pressure at UO. Inventories ended the Q higher on the back of sales misses at UO and inventory to stock new stores. The company called out weather as a major driver of the miss at UO. UO saw a ~$0.04 tax benefit in 4Q. In light of the continuing challenging trends for the UO concept, we are lowering our 1Q14/FY14/FY15 estimates."
