I have never heard that on a conference call before. I am sure it has happened. But, they usually just refer to increased competition. Coach cited Michael KORS as the culprit for their poor numbers. Good for KORS and bad for COH...
I was hoping for a pullback to add also. But, that will not happen! NVO is breaking out of a year old base and I expect a 20% move from the breakout ($38.50)! It should form a new base around $45-$46? They have started a massive share buyback program. That should put a floor on the stock. Any time it has a nice dip the firm can buy its own stock. That will also help with EPS going forward. I was hoping for an increase in the dividend after the five for one stock split...
Holding! But, I do not blame any long for taking profits.
I am a long term holder, and not a trader. I believe fair value for KORS is $120! Why would I sell myself short?
Coach dominated their niche market for 10 years. KORS earnings growth will beat UA by quite a bit. The shorts are getting squeezed in UA, and with more than 12 million shares short I can see KORS making a new high next week.
$5 in earnings using the current multiple makes it a $110 stock post split, or $220 pre split. Which makes CELG under valued.
Why are you being such a wise guy?
Cramer is a moron.
I am getting concerned about IBM in their software services transition. It seems like a lot of small companies are taking market share from them
KORS rallied from $81 to $101 in the first quarter before finally settling at $93. That is a 15% gain in the first quarter which dwarfs the DJIA which was negative for the first time in five quarters, and the Nasdaq which was up less than 1% in the first quarter. I will take that in my portfolio every quarter! I expect KORS to continue to outperform the markets for the education of 2014.
I believe the minimum KORS will trade at the end of the 4th quarter will be $120. From $80 to $120 in one year is a 50% gain, and that is a welcomed addition to any growth portfolio. KORS will not go parabolic like some people hope, because it does not have the massive short interest like a NFLX or TSLA. KORS will grind higher as the year goes along as they will continue to beat and raise estimates the entire year. They will raise to $4 in May and actually earn around $5. Therefore, plenty of upside "surprises" are ahead for this firm in 2014.
I expect KORS to trade over $120 this year, and it looks like it will get a jump start in February.
A $1 quarter will take it over $90...
KORS retraced some of its losses as it rose $3.08 (4%) with nearly 17 million shares being exchanged this week. The previous two weeks KORS sold off $5.48 with nearly 43 million shares traded in the two week time frame for a weekly average around 21.5 million shares. The stock is just beneath its 50DMA as it closed at $80.07, and has some work to do in order to get in the good graces of technical traders.
When KORS reports earnings in May they will have more than $1 billion in cash. That is up from $400,000 at the end of fiscal 2013. That is a 150% increase in cash in one year. KORS is a cash machine and has zero debt! On the conference call they spoke of holding off on any new projects until the have cash equivalents of 10% of their market cap, or $2 billion.
While other retailer are going out of business, KORS is flourishing...
There were a few other subtle nuggets from the conference call that John Idol let "slip" including spring sales....
KORS is an easy stock to hold, and I plan on doing just that for quite some time. The way I see it, the shorts are trapped under water in a big way. Any time the stock goes down a little they cover and push it right back up. It is like trying to hold a basketball underwater. The thing just wants to return to the surface. Don't get me wrong, the shorts will have success bashing this stock and knocking it down from time to time. But, for now, they are in a world of hurt.
KORS is a very quiet company, and I like that. They do not need to be in the news all the time. They report four times a year, and people are surprised when they crush numbers. Their management team is the best in the retail business, and have been executing their strategic growth plan for years.
I expect KORS to trade between $120 and $160 by the end of 2014! I will be here until the story changes, and by the looks of all my metrics KORS is getting stronger...
Good luck to all....
KORS guided to $3.07-$3.09 this week, and we know that means $3.15-$3.20 as they always lowball guidance. The quarter is nearly half over, and KORS business is doing well. There is no reason to think KORS will earn anything less than $3.15. I would think that a beat by a dime or more is logical. Using the current multiple of 35 the stock will trade at $110, and that is cheap for a firm growing at 60%.
Looking ahead to 2015, KORS can grow at a 50% clip and earn somewhere between $4.70 and $5! Of course, there will be obstacles along the way and there are no guarantees in the business world. There is always risk involved. However, if this management team can continue to execute as they have for many years, there is no reason to think that KORS will not earn $4.70-$5 in fiscal 2015. That would put the stock around $140-$175.
Reports EPS growth of 27% and beats by a nickel. The street expected $.54 and reported $.59! The stock is up 13% this morning. UA raised fiscal 2014 guidance. I expect a similar beat from KORS as the sector leader.
According to an SEC filing yesterday, Blackrock has increased its stake in KORS by 4.5%. These guys are playing hardball with the shorts. These are the games rich people play. KORS has a chance to really explode this year.
