  • Even a JP Morgan Endorsement Won’t Help Under Armour Stock

    Even a JP Morgan Endorsement Won’t Help Under Armour Stock

    Shares of Under Armour (NYSE:UAA) traded significantly higher in mid-May on a bullish note from JP Morgan, who upgraded Under Armour stock to Overweight with a $29 price target, implying ~30% upside over the next twelve months.Source: Shutterstock The bull thesis from JP Morgan is pretty simple. Under Armour has struggled significantly over the past several years with its product assortment and that has led to building inventories amid stagnant sales.In order to clear that inventory, Under Armour has had to run deep discounts on its merchandise, sell into lower-priced channels, and slow new product roll-out. Those moves stabilized sales, but they also diluted brand equity and dragged on margins. Net result? Profits were wiped out.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Stocks to Buy for Over 20% Upside Potential Inventory levels are dropping fast and now sit at their lowest level in several years. Management thinks this "down-sizing" era is over. Inventory levels are now appropriately low. Discounting will stop. Lower-priced sell-through will stop, too. The company can now put out new premium product, which should lift brand equity and margins. Net result? Profits should come soaring back.Consequently, while Under Armour is still in the early stages of this pivot, JP Morgan thinks now is the time to buy into Under Armour stock.But, this argument misses two critical risks: competition and valuation. Ultimately, those two risks will cap near to medium term upside in Under Armour stock. Competition Risks Are SizableBroadly speaking, the big growth niche in the athletic apparel space is in the convergence of athletic and leisure styles, and Under Armour has failed to keep pace with peers on the athleisure front.The rise of the internet and specifically visual-first social media has made consumers more aware of their image, health, and fitness than ever before. Consequently, consumers are increasingly trying to lead more healthy and fit lifestyles, and a big part of the image associated with that lifestyle is wearing athletic-style clothes that are simultaneously comfortable and can be worn anywhere, all the time. The fix? Athleisure styles.Under Armour completely missed the boat on this athleisure trend and continues to miss it today. While brands like Nike (NYSE:NKE), Adidas (OTCMKTS:ADDYY), and Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU) really focused on becoming lifestyle brands with a product assortment that applies to all consumers, Under Armour has consistently doubled down on performance. That was the wrong move.Consequently, while the other three players have consistently grown at a double-digit rate over the past few quarters, Under Armour's growth has fallen flat.Falling inventories won't solve that problem. Sure, now Under Armour can roll out new premium product and stop discounting stuff, which will help margins. But the company also needs to fix its image by becoming more of a lifestyle brand. As of today, it doesn't seem like there is anything in the growth pipeline which will do that.Further, even if Under Armour does pivot into lifestyle, they have a lot of catching up to do. Nike, Lululemon, and Adidas are firing on all cylinders right now, and all three are only gaining momentum. Under Armour will have a tough time gaining share against that backdrop. Valuation Risks Cap UpsideConsidering the competitive backdrop and Under Armour's recent inability to gain share in that competitive landscape, today's valuation on Under Armour stock seems stretched.Under Armour stock trades at nearly 60-times forward earnings. Everyone else in this industry trades roughly between 20- and 35-times forward earnings and everyone else is growing much more quickly. As such, relative to current growth rates, Under Armour's 60 forward multiple seems absurd.Sure, the bulls keep touting the long term profit growth potential. Yes, this company does sit at low single digit operating margins, versus mid-teens operating margins over at Nike. Thus, if the company does fix its inventory and discount problems, margins have lots of runway to move higher, and that will provide fuel for robust profit growth.But, if you model all that out, the valuation still seems stretched. Realistically, the global athletic apparel market will grow at a 4-6% annualized pace over the next several years. Best case scenario, Under Armour maintains share in that market.Thus, revenue growth runs around 5% per year. Operating margins move significantly higher to above 10% with inventories cleared and discounting in the rear-view mirror.Under all those aggressive assumptions, Under Armour can realistically do about $1.50 in earnings per share by fiscal 2025. Based on a Nike-average 25x forward multiple, that implies a reasonable fiscal 2024 price target for UAA of $37.50. Using a 10% discount rate, that equates to a fiscal 2019 price target of just over $23. Bottom Line on Under Armour StockUnder Armour's inventories are falling. That's good. It means the company does have runway to stabilize growth over the next several years, and push margins significantly higher. But, all that news is already priced into the stock, and the growth narrative is still riddled with competition risks. Thus, near term upside in UAA stock seems capped at $25 by competition and valuation risks.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long NKE and LULU.

    10 Baby Boomer Stocks to Buy

    Editor's note: This story was previously published in January 2018. It has since been updated and republishedWe don't hear as much about baby boomer stocks to buy these days since the conversation has turned to millennials, the new topic du jour. However, with bond yields moving higher and more experts suggesting the secular bull market in bonds is over, it's time baby boomers nearing retirement reconsider how much they de-risk their portfolios."Measured against interest rates, stocks actually are on the cheap side compared to historic valuations," Warren Buffett said in a recent interview. "But the risk always is that interest rates go up, and that brings stocks down."InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsYes, you've got to keep an eye on not putting too much into stocks, but for my money, they're still a better investment for baby boomers than heavily investing in bonds, especially if bond yields move considerably higher.Regardless of millennials taking the spotlight away from the baby boomers, it's still important to factor in the aging population in some of your stock picks. * 6 Chinese Stocks That Could Pop On a Trade Deal Here then are my ten baby boomer stocks to buy to get you to and through retirement.Source: Shutterstock Royal Caribbean Cruises (RCL)Most people with significant savings tend to travel a lot more in the first ten years of retirement than the next ten years. The oldest baby boomers are now 72 years of age meaning they probably have a few years of travel still left before they put away the suitcases away.One company that will benefit from the changing demographics is Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (NYSE:RCL). Cruises have always been of interest to retirees but now have also become a favorite travel activity of millennials, which means that business could continue to get better and better for the Miami-based company."ASTA [American Society of Travel Agents] polled 1,522 people in the U.S. aged 25 to 70 on their travel habits and preferences for The 2017 ASTA How America Travels National Study conducted by PSB," wrote Skift Magazine in a May 2017 article. "This is the real shocker from the report: more millennials 'strongly like' cruising than boomers or Gen Xers. More than four in five millennials who have cruised had a good time, which is truly surprising."Boomers might be growing bored of cruising but millennials appear willing to pick up the slack. RCL stock is up 31% annually over the past five years and already up 27% this year. I'd expect that this momentum will carry on for a few more years.Source: Shutterstock Vail Resorts (MTN)For every baby boomer who might be into cruising, there's another one who still keeps fit by skiing down a mountain. I can remember my aunt and uncle skiing well into their late 60's and early 70's in Quebec until their bodies could no longer take the stress.Many of today's boomers are in excellent shape, making it possible to ski into their 80's and possibly beyond. Also, many have chosen to work past 65, not necessarily because they have to, but because it beats thinking about what to do every day to pass the time. * 10 Retirement Stocks That Won't Wilt in a Bear Market "When Social Security was introduced, the average life expectancy was only 61 years, so most people who made it to retirement were only retired for a very short time." wrote Scott Hanson in Kiplinger. "Today, a healthy 65-year-old man has a 25% chance of living to be 89 (90, for a woman). If you retire at 65, you might have a 24-year (or more) retirement."Therefore, a company like Vail Resorts, Inc. (NYSE:MTN), one of the world's largest operator of ski resorts, is going to get a lot of business from baby boomer retirees in the future that it wouldn't have gotten ten or even five years ago.The chairlift that is MTN stock has got a long way to go before investors need to get off.Source: Shutterstock Ameriprise Financial (AMP)I long have recommended investors buy Ameriprise Financial, Inc. (NYSE:AMP) stock because it was being valued as an insurance company even though over half its operating income was from asset management activities.Since then, AMP stock is up 316%, more than two-and-a-half times the S&P 500.That recommendation didn't even consider the financial planning needs of the large group of baby boomers that would be turning 65 over the next 20 years.Ameriprise currently has $131.8 billion assets under management at the end of 2018 in an industry that's expected to grow assets 5% annually on a global basis to $90 trillion by the end of 2020 with a significant chunk of that in the U.S. and Europe where AMP has a major presence.Ameriprise's asset management business generates more than $80 billion in annual gross sales. Over the last six years, the company's managed to grow its earnings per share by 15% compounded annually, 500 basis points higher than its asset manager peers and 600 basis points higher than its financial planning peers.Younger boomers like myself are especially in need of the services Ameriprise provides. Why not buy its stock and get back some of the fees you'll pay for financial planning?Source: Yuriy Trubitsyn via Unsplash Howard Hughes (HHC)Bill Ackman was the largest shareholder in Howard Hughes Corp (NYSE:HHC) until he sold 2.5 million shares in late December and early January. Now holding 5.1% of the real estate investment trust that got its start way back in 1950 when Howard Hughes acquired the lands that would become the Summerlin master-planned community (MPC), Ackman's likely headed for the exit.But that doesn't mean you shouldn't buy and hold. HHC has an excellent group of assets that provide it with a three-pronged plan for growth. * 7 Cloud Stocks to Buy on Overcast Days First, we have the MPCs, something that will be very popular with baby boomers looking to slow down a little. HHCs five MPCs have 11,000 acres of saleable residential and commercial land at prices between $200,000 and $1 million an acre which puts the MPCs uninflated value at $4.6 billion.Secondly, it has 50 million square feet of future developments that are paid for, in part, by the sale of land at its MPCs.Finally, it owns 7.6 million square feet of retail and office space, multifamily apartment buildings with 2,600 units and approximately 1,000 hotel rooms. These are all operating assets that provide cash flow to the business to spur future development.It's a trifecta of growth that's hard to beat.Source: Shutterstock Lululemon (LULU)As I said in the piece about Vail Resorts, baby boomers are getting a lot healthier than people the same age from 20 years ago, so it's only natural that they are doing all kinds of things to keep fit, including yoga.Lululemon Athletica Inc. (NASDAQ:LULU) continue to capture a big chunk of the yoga apparel market, but anyone who follows the stock knows that it's become more than just a place for yoga enthusiasts to buy their workout gear. It's become a top choice for athletes of both sexes because it manufactures clothing that is both innovative and comfortable while providing a higher price point for investors.Perhaps the biggest compliment that LULU could get as the premier athleisure company in the world is Nike (NYSE:NKE) opened 5,000 women-focused "pants studios." Some experts see Nike as a category killer; I view it as a giant company reacting to the competition. Nike's a great business but it's not going to kick LULU off its perch by assigning space to pants studios.If you believe in exercise, LULU is the stock for baby boomers to own, not Nike.Source: Shutterstock Aphria (APHQF)There's no way I'd leave off at least one stock from one of the most promising industries and opportunities to come around in many a decade.Aphria Inc (OTCMKTS:APHQF) has a $1.75 billion market cap and happens to be one of the industry's lowest-cost producers and that's going to be critical for provincial governments looking to reduce the amount of pot sold on the black market. * 7 Dangerous Dividend Stocks to Stay Far Away From I'm not necessarily even thinking about the recreational use by baby boomers, but rather all the medicinal uses for pain issues that will continue to drive marijuana sales higher. I fully expect the top-line revenue from marijuana and marijuana-related products such as gummy bears to be considerable.Canopy Growth Corp (OTCMKTS:TWMJF) might be the biggest, but in my books, Aphria is the best of the Canadian cannabis stocks.Source: Priceline (PCLN)Baby boomers are going to do some traveling, whether it's before they retire or after they've called it quits at work. The question becomes which travel stocks to bet on.I've already highlighted cruises and skiing. Airlines typically are the ones that would get boomers to their final destination if they're not driving, but hotels, casinos and various other industries also come to mind.However, I'm going to go with the Priceline (NASDAQ:PCLN), the company that wants "to help people experience the world."Many consumers remember Priceline specifically for its "Name Your Own Price" proposition where you'd say you want to pay $150 for a hotel in Chicago and it would give you an option whose name would remain a secret until after you had accepted and paid for your room. I myself once used it to get a cheap fare to Destin, Florida from Toronto, not an easy undertaking.Priceline's revenues have grown every year for the past decade with free cash flow up by 41% compounded annually to $4.3 billion. My bet is on boomers continuing to make travel arrangements through Priceline. All the other things are just the details.Source: Shutterstock Vanguard Health Care ETF (VHT)We can't forget traditional healthcare companies when we're talking about the baby boomers but given how many stocks there are in the sector -- including 155 which are over $2 billion in market cap according to -- I think the prudent thing to do to cover the healthcare sector is to buy an exchange-traded fund..Cheap is better in this instance because I'm just suggesting that you give yourself a little blanket coverage; I'm not suggesting you go with something tactical. * 10 Great Stocks to Buy on Dips Therefore, with that in mind, I'd go with the Vanguard Health Care ETF (NYSEARCA:VHT), a portfolio of 372 healthcare stocks, all U.S.-listed large companies with a median market cap of $76 billion. The ETF itself has $7.2 billion in total assets, making it one of the largest 100 ETFs in the country, and its expenses are 0.1%, or $10 per $10,000 invested.Source: Rich Mitchell via Flickr Madison Square Garden (MSG)Baby boomers like to be entertained. Who doesn't for that matter?How they will spend their time over the next couple of decades includes attending live concerts and sporting events of their favorite performers or teams.There are several publicly traded options to get your fix but the biggest pure-play entertainment company other than Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS), which don't own any sports-related properties except ESPN, is Madison Square Garden Co (NYSE:MSG).MSG owns Madison Square Garden itself; the New York Knicks and New York Rangers; Radio City Music Hall; and several other theaters as well as a few other entertainment properties. MSG was split-off from MSG Networks Inc (NYSE:MSGN), the company's regional sports network, so that it could focus on its valuable sports and entertainment properties.Majority owner James Dolan has got a bit of a bad reputation that didn't get any better by having Charles Oakley thrown out of Madison Square Garden, but the assets themselves will continue to appreciate.Source: Governor Earl Ray Tomblin via Flickr Brookfield Asset Management (BAM)You would think I'd include a bank in a group of ten baby boomer stocks, but I'm more interested in providing ideas that will make you money than pumping Jamie Dimon's tires.Initially, I thought about Blackstone Group LP (NYSE:BX), one of the world's leading alternative asset managers, but decided to go for a slightly smaller version in Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (NYSE:BAM).CEO Bruce Flatt has expertly guided the company since 2002, building it into one of Canada's biggest companies with approximately $250 billion in assets under management in many parts of the world. * 7 Strong Buy Stocks That Tick All the Boxes In 2017, Canada's national newspaper named Flatt its CEO of the year. Frankly, he could be one of the world's best. Over the past 15 years, BAM's stock's averaged an annual total return of 17.4%, almost double the S&P 500.I prefer BAM over BX, but both stocks will make you money over the next 15 years.As of this writing, Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Members only: U.S. retailers revamp loyalty schemes for Amazon era

    Over the past two years, major U.S. retailers, including Macy's, Nordstrom, Kohls Corp and others, have spent billions of dollars to overhaul existing programs or launch new loyalty schemes. According to estimates compiled by market intelligence firm Beroe, the U.S. loyalty program market was worth between $47 billion and $55 billion in 2018 in terms of spending by companies and sector analysts expect it to keep growing by 2 percent to 4 percent a year between 2018-2020. Data from research firm LoyaltyOne showed retailers now invest at least 2 percent of their total revenue on loyalty programs and double that or more on related customer targeting and analytics.
