Quiksilver, Inc. (ZQK)
A globally diversified company that designs, produces and distributes branded apparel, wintersports and golf equipment, footwear, accessories and related products.

Currently, ZQK is 26% off its 52W high, but still up 250% from its March 2009 low.
My kind of value play.
I also like ZQK's huge jump (30%) on 3/12/10 on huge volume (15 million vs. average volume of 1 mil.).
Since that day, ZQK had no significant (high volume) distribution days.
I like that a lot.

Overvalued Surf/Skate/Snowboard Company: ZQK

Quiksilver (ZQK) stock had a real nice rally from February to May, however I believe that has caused the company to become overvalued fundamentally and now also technically the stock has ran out of upside momentum along with having formed a "head and shoulders pattern" (from April to the middle of May), so the stock can safely be shorted at these levels.

The reason I think fundamentally it's overvalued in it's most simplest aspect: I do not foresee this company ever paying a dividend. So, by discounting these cash flows of $0, we get a present value of ummmm... $0.

I'm not really saying this company is completely worthless, but yes, here is a company with almost a $600 million market cap, that does rougly $2 billion in revenues, but they also have nearly a billion dollars in debt, and have not been profitable for the last few years. Not to mention this is all on top of a decline in revenues over the last few years. Somehow the average estimates by analysts for EPS in 2011 is $0.24, for a forward P/E of 19, but 1.) I don't believe that EPS number will be realized, and 2.) I think even if they did realize it, that is too high of earnings multiple for a company with this much debt.

The company has some great brands such as Quicksilver, Roxy, DC, Lib Tech, and Gnu, but I just can't be bullish on ZQK in it's entirety when they haven't been able to be profitable with these brands over the last few years.

They release earnings after the bell today. Estimates are for $0.03, but whether they meet this or even blow it away, I'm bearish on the long term future for investors in this company, so as of today I'm short the stock at $4.59.

Love the brand. However an earnings report that pretty much reported that they lost LESS MONEY than quarter year ago doesn't warrant this thing shooting up 50% in value in just a week or two. The big picture is that this company is still losing money and in large debt.

I will say it again, and I am certain of this...Bankrupt in 3 years or less...Quiksilver is the epitome of lax corporate governance and a ballooning debt load that will underscore any growth here or abound. I consider this stock grade A junk

1. Quality products. They are more durable than competors.

2. Diversification, they have covered several different areas within the sports clothing market without becoming over expanded.

3. Iconic, Quiksilver is a staple within the sports apperal world. It is an easily identified brand.

4. It will recover from its economic blunder, (purchasing Rossignol) and will beat the market, especially at a depressed price of under $2.50

DC shoes is getting a large amount of pub time on MTV and every action sport on the planet. They are moderately priced shoes, and have a stylistic appeal which is a great combo for a shoe selection in a sour economy. DC Shoes is a large reason I am picking this stock to be highly profitable in the upcoming quarters. High was around 10 over the last 52 and is now priced at 1 1/2

underpriced, long term player in the sporting goods sector. Relatively recession proof.

I go to school at University of Hawaii and just thinking about what my friends and I have been buying lately, and other than beer and food, it has been almost exclusively clothing in the last few months. I've probably spent over a thousand dollars on surf related clothes this semester, and thats just me. While I'm from New Jersey, and this trend is apparent only to me out here, I'm coming home and bringing on this trend at home, even if I don't tell anyone directly, I find I am usually at the head of a fad or trend when it comes to twentysomethings. While I have bought a decent amount of clothes from Stussy and Billabong as well, Quicksilver is really what I have been picking up more than anything else, simply because their clothes and apparel are generally cooler/nicer, and their stores are very welcoming - it's hard not to walk in, at least as a person of my age, and not pick something up. Yesterday for example, on a Sunday, the store closed at 11pm, and me a friend went their because we received coupons. Even at 10:30pm on a Sunday, the cashiers were fairly swamped, many purchases being over $150. Beginning my research today, I immediately was suprised at how inexpensive the stock is valued, especially considering the price of Volcom, which really carries the same demographic, probably even less. I'm putting my money in ZQK, especially with June right around the corner and the heat turning up on the Mainland. Go Quicksilver!
