Bull of the Day: Capri Holdings (CPRI)

Read MoreHide Full Article

Capri Holdings (CPRI - Free Report) is a luxury retail holding company that specializes in men’s and women’s ready-to-wear apparel, accessories, and footwear. Its brand portfolio includes Michael Kors, Jimmy Choo, and Versace, each making up 75%, 10%, and 15% of total revenue, respectively.

Q2 Earnings Impress

Shares of Capri rose over 8% after the retailer reported better-than-expected second quarter results.

Revenue fell 23% to $1.11 billion but handily beat estimates of $924.9 million. The company’s top line benefitted from e-commerce growth, which solidly increased quarter-over-quarter, and positive sales growth in China.

Jimmy Choo was the best performing brand, with revenue down only 2.4%.

Additionally, Capri succeeded in controlling costs in Q2 thanks to initiatives like limiting advertising spending; adjusted operating margin rose 240 basis points to 16.4%.

Because of this, the company reported a strong profit of $0.90 per share compared to estimates of $0.04 per share.

As the world continues to emerge from this crisis, we are increasingly optimistic about the outlook for the fashion luxury industry and Capri Holdings,” said CEO John Idol.

CPRI is Surging

Capri Holdings Limited Price and Consensus

 

Since March 23, shares of Capri have climbed over 262%. Estimates have been rising too, and CPRI is a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) right now.

For the current fiscal year, nine analysts have revised their bottom-line estimate upwards in the last 60 days, and the Zacks Consensus Estimate has moved up from $0.47 per share to $1.21 per share. Earnings are expected to decline for the current fiscal year, but in 2021, CPRI’s bottom line is expected to see triple-digit year-over-year growth.

Due to the pandemic and related uncertainty, Capri didn’t provide guidance for Q3 or the rest of the fiscal year.

But Capri is well-positioned as the coronavirus pandemic continues. Q2’s results showed that it can generate much-needed profits in trying times, utilizing all three of its brands’ popularity in China (where the economy has bounced back and consumers are shopping at pre-pandemic levels) as well as its overall digital strength.

If you’re an investor searching for a retail stock to add to your portfolio, make sure to keep CPRI on your shortlist.

The Hottest Tech Mega-Trend of All

Last year, it generated $24 billion in global revenues. By 2020, it's predicted to blast through the roof to $77.6 billion. Famed investor Mark Cuban says it will produce "the world's first trillionaires," but that should still leave plenty of money for regular investors who make the right trades early.
