toffeeman: Tears are drying up at Boohoo The fall in Boohoo’s share price was halted after a leading investor insisted that the online fashion retailer remained en vogue, despite the best efforts of Amazon. Boohoo owns brands including Nasty Gal and Pretty Little Thing Boohoo owns brands including Nasty Gal and Pretty Little Thing Shares in the group have slipped by 12 per cent since Amazon launched Prime Wardrobe, its try-before-you-buy service, last month. City observers had expressed concern that the move could spell trouble for Boohoo, whose shares floated on Aim at 50p in 2014 and surged to 266p last month. Richard Watts, of Old Mutual Global Investors, sought to allay such fears, suggesting that Boohoo could benefit as more consumers chose to shop online. “This idea that everyone’s going to buy all of their clothes off Amazon, I just don’t believe it,” he said. Old Mutual is Boohoo’s largest institutional investor, with a 14 per cent stake. The family of Mahmud Kamani, who co-founded the company in 2006, holds more than a third of shares, while Carol Kane, the other co-founder, has a 4 per cent holding. Shares in Boohoo, which owns brands including Nasty Gal and Pretty Little Thing, closed flat at 220½p. Boohoo is one of Aim’s biggest companies, with a
jamesto2: re KOOVS - i don't think it'll take much for Mcap to pass through the £1 billion mark once things really start hotting up, which they will sooner or later. And with considerably fewer shares in issue than Boohoo, even with further placings shares in issue is still likely to remain considerably less than Boohoo, so i do think share price potential here is greater than that of Boohoo over the long term. I think it's a case of stock up now while the share price is cheap (and Mcap is miniscule) and hopefully we'll see a Boohoo style rise upto £5 to £10+ over the coming 1-3 years or so (Mcap £1b to £2b+)
cycle2: Sogoesit - true, Icahn forced the initial share buyback for Apple. However, Icahn has been out for ages and they still continue to buy back. It seems to me that the great thing about share buybacks from a company's point of view is that, unlike dividends, you can vary them without the investment community getting stressed when they're reduced. Plus, you can use dips in your share price to buy back more aggressively (Apple often do this). For us holders, we get a sort of 'dividend proxy' without the company indicating that it has reached that stage where dividends are appropriate (i.e. not high growth). The company is just saying that it has more spare cash than it can use for growth (wonderful position!) and that it sees buying itself as the best possible investment for that extra cash. In other words, the company itself is now planning to support the share price. I don't know about other holders but I've been surprised at how resilient BOO has been to share price dips, especially after the huge rise preceding the most recent results. What other growth company has had a maximum share price dip over the past 12 months of just 10% on a daily closing price basis (that was Nov 2016) and even less on a weekly basis? Anyone who has tried to trade the shares and buy on a pullback (yes, I tried once and ended up buying back higher) knows how difficult that has been. That would usually indicate the presence of: 1. Tightly held shares by long-term investors 2. Large buyers who are prepared to buy more aggressively when they see it dip Now the company is effectively telling us that they'll buy the dips too...
toffeeman: If it does get to £5 it will (probably) have a bigger market cap than NXT and with no stores to rent and run £5 may well be exceeded, and if they get international cracked you can use ASOS as a leading indicator (current M cap = £4.73bn or about £4.50 in Boo share price) - Are they better than ASOS? Key will be how they grow the management team.....
grahamburn: Short, but interesting, analysis of the company in 10 years time on Motley Fool today: _______________________ Where will plc be in 10 years? G A Chester | Thursday, 23rd February, 2017 | More on: ASCBOO Investors have been flocking to fast-fashion e-tailer (LSE: BOO). The company has shown tremendous growth to date. But where will it be in 10 years and is the stock a top pick for growth investors today? Fashioning comparisons Boohoo listed on AIM in March 2014 at 50p a share. After a stumble, which saw the shares fall to a low of 22p in January 2015, the company hasn’t looked back. The shares closed yesterday at a new high of 147.25p. With 1.12bn shares in issue, the market is valuing the business at £1.65bn. Revenue for Boohoo’s financial year ending 28 February is expected to come in at £290m. This provides a useful starting point for where Boohoo might be in 10 years. If we go back to 1998, Primark posted a similar revenue of £295m that year. Ten years later, this hugely successful fast-fashion retailer had increased its top line to just shy of £2bn. This represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.7%. Primark’s growth has been impressive but it’s a bricks-and-mortar chain and a better comparator for Boohoo may be online-only pioneer ASOS (LSE: ASC). ASOS posted revenue of £299m in calendar 2010 (again similar to Boohoo’s current revenue) and increased this to £1.6bn in calendar 2016. This gives a CAGR of 32.4% over six years. Analysts expect growth to moderate somewhat over the next few years, so that the 10-year CAGR would fall to about 27% (revenue near to £3.3bn). Projected valuation If Boohoo were to match ASOS’s projected 10-year revenue growth, we’d be looking at Boohoo delivering revenue of around £3.2bn come 2027. But what of valuation? ASOS currently trades at 2.75 times trailing 12-month revenue, while Boohoo — at the earlier higher-growth stage — trades at 5.7 times. If, by 2027, Boohoo is trading closer to ASOS’s 2.75 rating, we’d be looking at a market cap of £8.8bn, compared with today’s £1.65bn. ASOS’s shares in issue have increased by 15.5% over 10 years, due to director and employee incentive plans and so on. Assuming a similar increase for Boohoo, the current 1.12bn shares would increase to 1.29bn. So, at the mooted 2027 market cap of £8.8bn this would give a share price of 682p — a 363% increase from today, or a 10-year CAGR of 16.6%. Is Boohoo good value today? Given that some top FTSE 100 companies, such as Reckitt Benckiser, have done CAGRs into double digits in the last 10 years, does my projected 16.6% for Boohoo offer sufficient reward for the risk of a relatively young company compared with a mature blue chip. I think I’d be looking for a CAGR of 20% for a greater margin of safety. To get that, I’d need Boohoo’s shares to be trading at 110p today — about 25% below their actual level. Of course, Boohoo may turn out to be an even bigger success than ASOS and more than justify its current premium price. Reasons for optimism on this score include the company’s recent acquisitions of PrettyLittleThing and certain assets of collapsed US firm Nasty Gal and also the fact that Boohoo’s retail gross margin is running at 57% compared with 47% for ASOS when it was at the same stage of revenue generation. So, I can understand investors bidding up the price. But I feel Boohoo will have to deliver nothing short of stunning growth over 10 years to justify it.
harebridge: From Paul Scott (Paulypilot) on stockopedia.Boohoo.Com (LON:BOO)Share price: 99.25p (up 1.5% today)No. shares: 1,123.3mMarket cap: £1,114.9m(at the time of writing, I hold a long position in this share)Interim results, 6m to 31 Aug 2016 - excellent reporting timeliness - publishing interim figures just 27 days after the period end is good stuff - clearly the FD and his team have good internal controls in place.Why am I still reporting on this share, now it's over £1bn market cap? Well, partly to crow about one of my biggest successes in the last couple of years! Also because I know that a lot of readers followed me into this share after the market threw us a bargain in Jan 2015 at a quarter of the current price.The interim figures today are excellent, and well ahead of forecasts. Brokers are upgrading full year forecasts as a result. Peel Hunt puts out the best research I've seen on BooHoo, so those are worth asking your broker to source for you. PH has raised this year (ending 28 Feb 2017) to EPS of 1.8p. Although personally I think 2p EPS could be on the cards.In valuation terms, that gives a current year PER of about 50. So clearly this share is now expensive. The question is whether the growth & future potential of the business is worth paying up for. That's a decision each investor has to make for themself, based on their risk tolerance. Personally, I've top-sliced my holding on the way up, which is a nice compromise, as that way you've banked some of the profit, but still benefit from any further upside.Market sentiment could change of course. We've seen lots of growth company shares go through the roof this year. So if something has gone from a PER of 20 to a PER of 50, then that's a bit of a one-off gain. It could of course quite easily reverse, if the market has a big correction.Mind you, when you look at the highlights from today's figures (see below), there are some fantastic growth trends underway here. Remember this is all organic growth too, and it's international, not just UK;Very strong top line growth, up 40% year on year.Note there's a sharp fall in gross margin. The company has been rather clever here. What they've done is to deliberately plan for lower selling prices (which were already under-cutting most of the High Street). At the same time, they reduced marketing spend (which was enormous, at over 10% of turnover). This makes complete sense to me - after all, there are only so many ads which customers will respond to - the law of diminishing returns kicks in beyond a certain point. Much better to lower prices, and drive growth that way, as obviously if customers see bargains, they buy more.Hence the profit line and EPS are up triple digit percentages, proving that accepting a lower gross margin results in a better overall result in profit terms.Growth in overseas territories is encouraging, particularly 93% growth in the USA. That would be a rather good market to crack, given its size.Balance sheet is excellent, with £67.1m of net cash (rising). Note that continuous capex is needed, to increase warehouse capacity. Some quite chunky forex derivatives losses have popped up.Outlook - this is all self-explanatory;My opinion - this is a fantastic company. I've been saying for a while that it's actually better than Asos - because it's delivering strong growth, and decent profitability. Whereas Asos has seen its profit margin relentlessly falling, and is really now very low.On conventional valuation grounds, BOO may look expensive now. However, PER is not a good valuation method to use for rapid growth companies. Also note that BOO has seen earnings expectations constantly rising - e.g. a year ago it was expected to do 1.35p EPS this year. I reckon the final outcome is probably more likely to be about 50% higher than that, around the 2p EPS level. This is why people have been buying the shares - they've worked out that the company is on a roll.Online is doing serious damage to the High Street retailers now. Companies like BOO have cut out the middlemen. The people behind BooHoo used to be the biggest supplier to my old employer, Pilot - we had a chain of about 150 shops mostly in the UK, which we built up in the 1990s. Sadly, Pilot is no more, in terms of a High Street presence anyway, but our former supplier has now morphed into BooHoo, and supplies the young female end customers direct, via their smartphones & tablets. The product is so cheap that it's almost disposable fashion, to wear once or twice, then throw away. It's really difficult to see how High Street competitors, with their enormous overheads of a large branch network, can compete at the cheap end of the market.As regards BOO, yes the shares look pricey now. However, I think the growth, and international potential, means this valuation of almost 100p per share can be justified. Providing nothing goes wrong of course.In my view, management here are exceptionally talented, experienced, ambitious & hard-working. So that also justifies something of a premium. So it remains one of my favourite shares, although I'm mindful that the price is looking a bit on the high side now.Also, note that the company appears to be inching towards doing a deal to integrate which is operated by one of the sons of BooHoo's founder. It's always been an uncomfortable conflict of interest, so I feel that BooHoo really has to exercise its £5m Call Option. Peel Hunt says it's "fairly certain" that BOO will indeed decide to acquire PLT before the Mar 2017 deadline.Longer term, I believe that BOO is likely to create new brands, and standalone websites, targeting different demographics. So the growth could continue for the foreseeable future.
harebridge: A good write up by respected Paulypilot (Paul Scott)Boohoo.Com (LON:BOO)Share price: 56.1pNo. shares: 1,123.3mMarket cap: £630.2m(At the time of writing, I hold a long position in this share)Q1 trading update - covering the 3 months to 31 May 2016. This is a strong update, with excellent (all organic) growth in all regions. Here are the highlights, highlighted:Forex - is expected to become helpful as the year progresses, helping margins, but it sounds as if this benefit will be recycled into lower prices for customers.Cost efficiencies - longer term, there is scope to improve the net margin, by automating the warehouse. It sounds as if, right now, the company is focused mainly on sales growth.Valuation - this is the tricky bit! Obviously this share has risen considerably, and on any conventional metric, it looks expensive. However, I find with rapid organic growth stocks, it doesn't pay to obsess over what the PER is. Remember that ASOS (LON:ASC) was on a crazily expensive rating for years, and still is - it's rated at 63 times current year forecast earnings - which doesn't make sense to me - ASC looks significantly over-valued.However, Institutions want these stocks, and are prepared to pay up for them. In my view, BOO shares are a far better proposition than Asos. BOO makes a much higher net profit margin, and probably has better growth potential from here (as it's smaller). I'm concerned that Asos may have grown so big that management might not be fully in control.As I've been saying for a while, BOO is expensive now. However, today's update shows us why. Where else can you find this type of very strong organic growth, on high gross margins? - there could be upside from BOO exercising its £5m Call Option, bringing this other family business into the fold. I feel that BOO will have to exercise this option, and remove a major conflict of interest for the family shareholders.An announcement that PLT is coming into the group could trigger a vertical move upwards in the share price, in my view. So the family shareholders will benefit from this too. Therefore I'm very keen to see this happen. PLT is performing very well, per press reports, and online stats.What this also shows though, is that BOO could become a multi-brand online retailer. It has key expertise on sourcing, and has also shown itself to be great at marketing, and pretty good at logistics too. In fact, I think BOO is demonstrating that it's good at everything! (contrary to a ridiculous research note from Panmures a while back).Therefore I think there is additional upside on BOO shares from this developing into a potentially giant group longer-term, operating multiple websites and brands. Management are extremely ambitious. There's loads of international growth to go for too.My opinion - I'm increasingly of the view that this share could just keep going up, much in the way that Asos did during its rapid growth phase. So, although it conflicts with every fibre of my being, I'm trying to look through the expensive rating that the shares are currently on. Although 40 times earnings this year, and 32 times next year, is not into bonkers valuation territory at all. It's probably about right for now, but I think the rating could even go higher potentially, who knows?Another key point is that this share is under-owned by institutions. If they want to own it, and clearly with this type of performance underway they will do, then the only choice is to pay up.Overall then, I'm very happy with today's update, and can't see any reason at all to sell. Mind you, looking at the chart, it's going to have to pause for breath, or retrace somewhat, at some point. I've no idea when though.I keep reminding myself, "Run your winners", as the saying goes!
3rd eye: Thats a good point richjp but Saucepan also makes a good point about the chart. Its all about which is the stronger, overhead supply (stale bulls) OR underlying demand, (eager newbies) wanting to get in and take a share of the pie. VOLUME must be tracked now on a daily basis. This being a democratic thread and sensible discussion taking place between bulls and bears I only feel it is responsible to present the bear argument from the Pros in a counter to Paul who presented or was presented here yesterday. Good set of results from Boohoo, but is the upside now priced in? By Gary Newman | Tuesday 26 April 2016 Online fashion retailer Boohoo (BOO) has undergone a steady recovery over the past 15 months or so, but I would question how much further this run of upwards momentum can extend. A poor trading update at the beginning of 2015 saw its share price plummet to the low 20s, but since then it has maintained an upwards trajectory and at a current share price of around 49p isn’t far off of the highest it has been since it’s IPO back in March 2014, which was very well received by the market at the time. There was certainly nothing in today’s preliminary full year results up to February 29 2016 that would cause me to offload quickly if I held here, but I do think it is starting to look a bit overheated after such a big recovery. Historically the current level of around the 50p mark has provided resistance – although in the past it hasn’t been hit after such a strong, sustained run upwards – and the PE ratio, of between 44 and 45 currently, also looks on the high side. In terms of the PE growth (PEG ratio) that currently looks about okay at around 0.93, but if the shares prices gets much higher that will move above 1 and would suggest that the share price was starting to get ahead of itself. Of course in isolation these figures are fairly meaningless as they don’t give a complete picture of any company and where it is going, but for this type of outfit which has potential for further growth I find them useful. In terms of the latest accounts, revenue was up a very healthy 40% to £195 million, gross profit rose 33% to £112 million, and pre-tax profit was up to £15.6 million, a rise of 42% on the previous year. Plus the company had plenty of money in the bank with over £58 million at the year end. The customer base has also seen fairly rapid growth, and in particular the Australian and US markets have been strong for the company, with international markets now making up roughly a third of total revenues. It is also encouraging that the company has managed to achieve this in spite of a reduction in marketing spend from 13.2% to 10.2% of revenue generated – although in monetary terms that will now be higher than the previous year, due to revenue now being a lot higher. The company has also been spending on the technology that it needs to carry on the success of the business, including android and iPhone apps, and £7.7 million went on extending its warehouse by 270,000 square feet, with a further expansion of 275,000 square feet currently underway. So in terms of the company itself and what it has achieved, plus where it seems to be heading, I actually quite like it and think that it has potential. What I am less sure about though is its current market cap of over £550 million as I think that prices in a lot of the current good news and therefore doesn’t offer such good risk/return as further upside is all down to continued good news and high levels of growth. We may not see that growth repeated, certainly to the extent that we have over the past year or so when the company has been in recovery mode, plus this is a very crowded market and many companies in this sector reach a ceiling where further growth drops off. I certainly wouldn’t be rushing to short this company – it has been a popular target in the past though, and most of those shorts closing may well have helped contribute to the share price recovery – as there is nothing fundamentally wrong with it that I can see. But for anyone who took advantage of buying anywhere near the lows, it would seem sensible to at least take some of that off of the table now, especially with plenty of companies seemingly offering better risk/reward. - See more at: hxxp://
paulypilot: Hi, Great to see the BOO share price steadily appreciating. I've been invited to attend the analyst meeting on 26 April, so all being well I should be able to get along to that. Looking forward. This is such a fantastic company, I love BooHoo - it's doing all the things we should have done at Pilot in the 1990s, but the market passed us by. Good on 'em! Great to see such a success story, well done to everyone involved, it's a wonderful Manchester success story. People are rightly proud of this team effort. Cheers, Paul.
harebridge: CITY A.MBoohoo's share price rises as revenue and profits jump29 September 2015 7:53amby Clara Guibourg Boohoo has shrugged off its problems from last Christmas (Source: Getty)Boohoo's share price climbed this morning, as the UK online retailer reported a jump in both revenue and profits.The figuresThe fashion etailer's revenue soared by 35 per cent in the first half of 2015, to land at £90.8m. Pre-tax profit was up to £6.3m, a rise of 39 per cent.The FTSE 250-listed company said it was now expecting a full year revenue growth of between 30 to 35 per cent.Boohoo's share price climbed 6.8 per cent on the news, however shares are still down in the year to date, after warm weather and delivery struggles over Christmas resulted in the company's shares tumbling by 40 per cent.Why it's interestingWith both revenue growth and pre-tax profits accelerating, Boohoo has clearly shown it's back on track after last Christmas's woes, when a warm autumn forced it to issue a profit warning sending its share price down over 40 per cent. UK sales are up 30 per cent, but figures in the rest of the world show the company's international expansion on track, as revenue jumped 65 per cent.However it will have to go some way to recover the losses to its share price since its IPO in March 2014, when it opened at 85p - 70 per cent higher than the 50p float price.What they saidCarol Kane and Mahmud Kamani, joint chief executives, said:We are pleased to report a successful first half, with strong revenue growth driven by acquiring new customers through our investments in price, promotions and marketing spend. We continue to invest in our brand internationally and our strategy to focus on key markets where we see the greatest growth potential remains unchanged.In shortBoohoo has released stylish earnings figures which show the company is back in fashion.
