2014-06-24 Update

I think that it's telling when a CEO is humble enough to able to step aside and set the atmosphere for younger, hipper folks to drive design choices. That alone gets my attention. The company possesses a twelve months trailing nett income margin of 13.8% and has been consistently cash-flow positive over the last 10 years (with exception to 2007). Share count has reduced from 171m to 149m over the last 5 years. It's also impressive that CEO Hayne has been able to grow Anthropologie and Free People to 55% of the overall sales, with another 1% from new concepts. The namesake Urban Outfitters brand has been lackluster but Antropologie and Free People has been showing remarkable 8% and 25% comp growth respectively. I believe that they have enough to turn around their namesake brand. An attractive value point provides a little margin of safety too.

Big drop today, big potential. Have played this one this way before. Immediate start, no need for DD, no start limit! I'm already familiar with it. Looking for a little more margin of error for a real cash position, in case of CORRECTION . . .

Free People and Anthropologie performing very well. If management can turn the UO stores around we could have some nice upside.

Current reasonable trailing Price to FCF of 20:1.

URBN has an A for financial health and a PEG less than 1 on Morningstar, so it's one of my long picks.

It's got great concepts in Anthropologie and Free People that are carrying the core brand over some slippery areas, and the balance sheet is strong. I like that they're not oversaturating with too many stores.

Urban Outfitters will outperform the market due to a combination of ongoing footprint expansion and the strength of the company's Anthropologie and Free People brands. Here's an article with more on the topic:

A discounted price for a retailer with a strong brand that I believe has staying power. The price has been beaten down as of late providing us a solid entry point. There is positive and sustainable cash flow, and double digit ROIC. There is no debt coupled with a strong history of sales and earnings growth.

Take advantage of the one-day drop here. Very good brands, reinvigorated leadership, both teen and adult shopping destinations and growing online presence. Thumbs up.

Taking a chance on this one, based on recommendations. Strong network of mid-upscale stores, strong cash position. Setting a limit start at $41 (currently $41.76)

Spot on with current trends with ALL 5 distinct stores.
Urban=Hip, cool, quirky clothes, books, records, homegoods etc.Great international growth potential and further penetration possible nationally and online
Anthropologie=Classy clothes and homegoods for the 25+ crowd.
Free People=Modern day hippie bohemian clothing. Girlfriend's favorite brand, sister's favorite brand. Absolutely on fire right now and the brand with the largest potential in my opinion.
BHLDN= Wedding brand. Big margin industry that has huge potential if they can grab market share.
Terrain= Personal favorite of mine. Hip gardening and homegoods. Only two current stores, but could really see this taking off.
Furthermore URBN is very tech savvy and could see them utilizing technology in beneficial ways to increase margins in the coming years.

Outperform.
