    • Pier 1 Imports (PIR +7.1%) trades higher after updating FQ3 guidance at the Raymond James Boston Fall Investors Conference.
    • “Our merchandise, promotional and marketing initiatives are resonating well with our customers,” noted CEO Alex Smith.
    • “Comparable sales quarter-to-date through October grew at a low single-digit rate. The election appears to have disrupted sales during the first ten days of November but we anticipate that sales trends will improve as we move through the month."
    • "We are seeing strength in our gross margin – a result of great merchandise, balanced promotional activity and efficiency improvements in the supply chain. Based on trends so far this quarter, we now expect our fiscal third quarter results to be at the high-end of our previously guided ranges for comparable and net sales, merchandise margin, earnings per share and adjusted earnings per share.”

    • Alden Global Capital delivers a scathing message to Pier 1 Imports (PIR +0.9%) in a new letter directed to the company's board.
    • Some of the key points made by Alden are highlighted below.
    • "Pier 1's stock has dramatically underperformed peers and the market over the past 10 years."
    • "Pier 1 trades at a meaningful discount relative to peers."
    • "The Company's deteriorating operational performance, as further evidenced by the recent disappointing first half financial results, adds even greater urgency to the situation."
    • "Shareholder representation on the Board is imperative in order to ensure that the current CEO search and hiring process is properly overseen and that shareholders' best interests are paramount in the boardroom."
    • "We find it deeply troubling that the Board, excluding the departing CEO, collectively owns 0.5% of the outstanding shares."
    • "The Board's adoption of the Poison Pill was a clear overreaction to our involvement and further evidences that you may be more interested in protecting your director positions and fees than working constructively with one of your largest shareholders on ways to meaningfully enhance shareholder value."
    • Alden is Pier 1's largest shareholder with a 9.5% stake.
