“Oxford Industries (OXM) reported adjusted 2Q EPS of $1.83, in line with B. Riley FBR/consensus estimates of $1.84/$1.83. Results were driven by solid comps in both brands with +8% at Lilly Pulitzer. GM expanded +60 bps while SG&A deleveraged –60 bps. Management provided 3Q18 adjusted EPS guidance of $0.10–$0.20 (vs. B. and reaffirmed 2018 adjusted EPS at $4.45–$4.65 (vs. B. Riley FBR/consensus of $4.58). Management expects total company SSS of +MSD/+HSD for 2H18, which we believe is achievable given the strength we are seeing in core categories, supported by robust marketing initiatives. Wholesale pressure should also lesson in 2H18. We reiterate our Buy rating and $97 price target as we expect continued outperformance, given a strong macro backdrop, best in class brands (Lilly, Tommy), and growth opportunity with Southern Tide.”
