Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We are cautious on DSW ahead of FQ2 results on Tuesday, August 28 BMO as we believe the company’s strategies to drive traffic have come at the expense of margins. Specifically, the structural change to offer free shipping took hold in early May, kids shoes became available across all DSW stores in mid-July, noticeable store-wide promotions were broadly advertised, and elevated expense investments have likely persisted. We appreciate the company’s efforts to spur traffic; however, we believe the recent strategies undertaken, while necessary, are expensive and margin degrading. With that said, we are raising our Q2 EPS estimate to 47c from 44c on a 6% comp estimate (up from 1.5%) partially offset by lower merchandise margins."
