Factors Influencing Results

YETI Holdings’ high-quality product pipeline, strong brand presence and robust supply chain are expected to reflect on fourth-quarter results. The company’s robust growth across categories and channels has been driving revenue growth. Its Wholesale segment is likely to have kept its momentum alive in the quarter to be reported. Also, the direct-to-consumer business has been a major growth driver for the company.

The upcoming quarterly results are also likely to benefit from robust performance of Drinkware, and Coolers & Equipment categories.

Its four strategic growth drivers — namely increase in the customer base, introduction of products, acceleration of direct-to-consumer and international expansion — are commendable.

We believe that cost improvements across its portfolios and favorable shift in the channel mix are likely to have driven earnings in fourth-quarter 2019, despite tariffs and currency headwinds.
