Canaccord Genuity cut its price target on Hold-rated Columbia Sportswear (NASDAQ: COLM) from $50 to $48 after the negative Q4 pre- announcement.

The firm comments, "The company is now anticipating Q4 sales to be down 5%, from +1.5% previously, with further gross margin compression. As such, we are lowering our Q4 EPS estimate to $1.11 from $1.27. While we have been cautious on the stock
due to heightened levels of markdown at retail, sell-through was clearly worse than we had expected. Given the late arrival of winter weather, we believe outerwear inventory will carry over into 1H13 and likely compress gross margins further."
