+ Watch WSM
on My Watchlist
The Company is a retailer of products for the home.
economy and housing market recovery is too slow
fools news letter
Great company with current miss there is an opportunity
Long term: Most telling is that the top five executives continue to harvest in the neighborhood of 10% of net earnings for themselves. Some companies prosper by tithing to God, others by tithing to Madison Avenue, but not too many prosper for very long paying nearly 10%, year after year, to Top Management. Short term: inventories are too high and the quick ratio is just 0.23.
Sooner or later, people are going to run out of money for snooty luxury crap. Honestly.
This home goods retailer is firing on all cylinders after a better-than-expected and peer-beating holiday season. With West Elm and Pottery Barn growing like gangbusters as well as unexpectedly strong performance in Australia and the Middle East, the only thing left for Williams-Sonoma to do is boost sales at its core brand stores, which it has started to accomplish with baby steps forward.
Changing My Caps to Reflect my investing strategy. I start with a simple screener trying to find undervalued dividend paying stocks. Then because I want to invest in things I understand I eliminate any businesses I have not heard of or in areas I lack knowledge ( Financials, Precious Metals). After that I check the Caps Rating and it gets a thumbs up if it is rated 4 stars or higher. Very few 3 star companies will get a thumbs up but occasionally i will go out on a limb with one like this one, which i chose because my wife said I should...
this stock just report earnings and seems like it's going to explode
I'm going long on WSM. I think in this age of Amazon and online shopping, customer service with face-to-face pleasant interactions and a great shopping experience will keep brick and mortar businesses growing. That will be the key differentiater for me at least, and WSM has that quality when you enter the store of wanting to come back. I use to have that feeling with Best Buy...but now I can't stand to walk into a Best Buy as it now has that WalMart feel.
It is a well known and high quality performer and is just starting to branch out internationally.
I know I can buy the same things elsewhere, but something about the shiny toys and great smells makes a stop at William Sonoma a must when we are at the mall and we always walk away with something.
It has nice valuation and is growing.
Stock is down 12% because of reduced outlook for Q4_12. Announcing increased div and buy back. ValuePro val around $45 with 5% growth, Quicken val around $40 with 10% growth. It should be around $40
My wife and all her friends love these brands. They are expensive brands for a questionable economy but that isnt stopping them
Will grow nicely as the economy bounces back.
People are slowly going back to the excess lifestyle where this company has their feet planted.
Just beat quarterly earnings, but PE and PEG was high relative to the industry average so folks are selling on the good news. Need to wait until it reaches the 50d Moving average (which is right now actually to get back in).
Have to think long-term here. This stock will only increase as the economy improves. Not many people are going for the luxury products that WSM has to offer.
I am definitely late to this party, but there are plenty of drinks and gals left to have a good time. Going up!
Recent earnings reports show this company is recovering from the recession. The stats and charts look good. If you're cautious about buying into retail at this early stage of economic recovery, buy on a pull back from the $21 level as of the 12/4/09 market close. Also note that this is a higher end retailer that doesn't have to compete with the mid stream retailers in the home goods market segment.
