UPDATE: Meet the new 'fallen angels': Macy's, Coach- and Michael Kors-parent credits cut to 'junk' at Fitch

Continued 'negative' outlooks warn of further downgrades, as coronavirus pandemic disruptions could extend into 2021

Macy's Inc., Coach-parent Tapestry Inc. and Michael Kors-parent Capri Holdings Ltd. have joined the ranks of "fallen angels," after Fitch Ratings downgraded their credit ratings to "junk" territory on Wednesday, citing the "unprecedented" impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on the consumer spending on nonessential items.

Fitch cut the long-term issuer default ratings (IDR) of both Macy's(M) and Capri(CPRI) by one notch to BB+, the highest speculative-grade, or "junk" rating, from BBB-, and lowered Tapestry's(TPR) IDR by two notches to BB from BBB-.

The outlooks for the IDRs of all three retailers remains negative, which warns of further downgrades, as the "significant business interruption from the coronavirus pandemic (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/coronavirus-update-883225-cases-44156-deaths-americans-urged-to-brace-for-two-painful-weeks-2020-04-01) and the implications of a downturn in discretionary spending that Fitch expects could extend well into 2021."

Shares of Macy's tumbled 9.8% to the lowest close since it started trading in February 1992, according to FactSet. The department store chain was also booted from the S&P 500 index by S&P Dow Jones Indices late Tuesday (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/macys-to-leave-the-sp-500-index-2020-03-31), and placed in the S&P SmallCap 600 index . Shares of Tapestry sank 14.5% and Capri plunged 17.4%.

The ratings downgrades and negative outlooks at Fitch are part of a more pessimistic view of the broader discretionary retail sector, given the uncertainty over the duration of closures of stores selling nonessential goods.

"Fitch has assumed a scenario where discretionary retailers in the U.S. are essentially closed through mid-May with sales expected to be down 80%-90% despite some sales shifting online, with a slow rate of improvement expected through the summer," Fitch said. "Given an increased likelihood of a consumer downturn, discretionary sales could decline in the mid-to-high single digits [on a percentage basis] through the holiday season."

"Fallen angel" is a term used to describe a situation in which a company's debt rating falls from investment grade to junk status. Typically, a rating isn't considered junk unless at least two of the three major credit-rating agencies rate them as such. Of the three, Macy's is the only "official" junk credit, as S&P Global Ratings cut its rating to BB+ (https://www.standardandpoors.com/en_US/web/guest/article/-/view/type/HTML/id/2384166) in February and Moody's Investors Service cut its rating (https://www.moodys.com/research/Moodys-downgrades-Macys-senior-unsecured-rating-to-Ba1-assigns-Ba1--PR_420766) to Ba1 -- Moody's highest speculative grade rating -- last week.

Tapestry is still investment grade at Moody's and S&P Global and Capri is investment grade at S&P Global but is not rated at Moody's.

Fitch also cut on Wednesday the IDRs of Dillard's Inc.(DDS) two notches to BB from BBB-, of Nordstrom Inc.(JWN) to BBB from BBB+, of Kohl's Corp.(KSS) to BBB- from BBB, of Levi Strauss & Co.(LEVI) to BB from BB+, of Signet Jewelers Ltd.(SIG) to B from B+ and of J.C. Penney Corp.(JCP) to CCC- from CCC+, while keeping that of Burlington Stores Inc.(BURL) at BB+. The outlooks for all the ratings remain negative.

Fitch said that while it expects "significant" sales growth in 2021 off a weak 2020, the level could be as much as 8% to 10% below 2019 sales. Department store sales could fare much worse, Fitch said, with sales projected to decline in the low to midteens percentages in 2021.

"Given the typical timing of a consumer downturn (four to six quarters), revenue trends could accelerate somewhat exiting 2021, with 2022 projected as a modest growth year," Fitch said.

For Macy's, Fitch expects 2020 revenue to be nearly 25% below 2019 levels followed by a decline of over 15% in 2021. Tapestry revenue is expected to decline around 25% in 2020 and around 10% in 2021, while Capri revenue is forecast to fall around 25% in calendar 2020 and is expected to decline around 10% in fiscal 2022.

Year to date, shares of Macy's have plunged 73.9% through Wednesday, Tapestry have tumbled 59.0% and Capri have plummeted 76.6%, while the SPDR S&P Retail exchange-traded fund(XRT) has dropped 39.1% and the S&P 500 has lost 23.5%.
