A quick look at KORS and LULU

March 21, 2013 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: KORS , LULU , CATO

After slight pullbacks in KORS and LULU, I decided to take a quick look at the fundamentals of both.  From a valuation perspective, both companies seem to be pretty similar in regards to PE, ROA, ROE, Gross Margins, Op Margins, net cash, Market Cap.  KORS mostly beats out LULU in these metrics - maybe by a few percentage points or two - but for the most part they are similar.  One metric, however, is vastly different: comparable store sales.  LULU's comp sales are up 10%, while KORS are up 40%.  Having said that, is anybody adding to LULU rather than KORS, here?  Am I missing some other glaring metric?  Despite the fact that one company focuses on sportswear and the other focuses on accessories, both are trendy, popular women's brands that charge way too much for clothes.  [more]

As stock valuations become increasingly richer, I've been trying to look under some rocks to see if I can find any bargains by shifting my focus to more small and micro-cap stocks.  (I’ll let the rest of the investment community bang their heads against the wall as to why Apple isn’t $600/share.)  I've found a few small cap stocks that appear to be interesting, but my due diligence stops after about 15 minutes per company, possibly rendering my analysis worthless – I’ll leave that to you to decide.    [more]
