christh: Data is the reason why I think Boohoo shares have much further to go Michael Baxter | Thursday, 16th January, 2020 Data is the new oil, or so they say. If that is right, then Boohoo (LSE:BOO) has been striking new oil with a frequency that other companies can only envy. It was the Economist magazine that first described data as the new oil. Ever since then, the phrase has gained popularity. Digital technologies lie behind the development and digital-related working practices are closely linked. Boohoo is a master of all. The Boohoo share price has been on quite a ride. The shares are up 15% over the last month, by 80% over the last year and have increased 12-fold over the last five years. Some question whether it can continue, whether Boohoo, with its whopping great P/E ratio of 75 is overpriced. This point of view gained more support when it emerged recently that Booboo, with net assets worth around £300m, had a higher market valuation than Marks and Spencer with net assets worth £2.6bn, I don’t agree with this view though, because I don’t think the critics understand the value of data. Boohoo’s big opportunity lies overseas. It holds a tiny 0.4% market share of the US and EU online apparel market. With brands such as Karen Millen, Nasty Gal, BoohooMAN, PrettyLittleThing, Coast, and MissPap as well as the Boohoo label itself, its opportunity to gather data, test data and draw insights from that data grows. Add to the mix its mastery of digital marketing, in particular social media, and its business model remains compelling. One of the important points about data is that size really does matter. The optimal size of a data company is one that entails market monopoly. That’s why there is only one Facebook-type service. I am not saying Boohoo will grow to have a market monopoly, but I am saying that its optimal size is much greater than its current size, which is why I think the share price has got a lot more growth left in it. A top stock with enormous growth potential more over here..... hTtps://
guruofcanada: 2 months old article, but the situation is now even more risky for boo share On Wednesday, ASOS (LSE: ASC) reported a 68% crash in pre-tax profit and a 70% slump in earnings per share. Yet its share price climbed 20% on the day of the announcement. Welcome to the upside-down world of growth investing. For years, I’ve been warning readers against the dangers of buying into soaring stocks when they’re on super-high valuations as, time and time again, I’ve seen such growth stories inflate and then burst. ASOS has been a textbook example, with the shares soaring to almost £78 in March 2018, since when they’ve crashed back to current levels of around £30. The shares, incidentally, were on a P/E of 79 at their peak, based on that year’s eventual EPS figure. Worth it? How many shares have I seen that I’ve ever thought were worth such a high valuation? I really can’t think of a single one I’ve ever bought at anything close to that level. You might point out that ASOS’s current woes are down to unpredictable warehouse problems, with the company saying it had “underestimated the impacts of large scale operational change being executed on two continents simultaneously”; and that “with the benefit of hindsight, we were not adequately prepared for the additional complexities.” But yes, that’s exactly it. Every new company will experience unanticipated problems. That simple fact is possibly about the only reliably predictable thing we can say about growth stocks. Oh, and that when such problems crop up, the share price will be hammered. Bitten twice? In the case of ASOS, the problems were known and the crash happened long before its full-year results were out. But could the same happen to online fashion rival Boohoo (LSE: BOO) now? Well, Boohoo has the distinct advantage of not being a first mover and not testing untrodden ground — it’s often not the first movers in a new direction who have all the success. So Boohoo can, in theory at least, learn from the mistakes ASOS has made and endeavour not to make the same ones. But there are other mistakes. Boohoo is also performing exceptionally well this year too, with first-half revenue up 43% and adjusted EPS up 46%. Global expansion is going well, with international trade now accounting for 44% of total revenues. Sentiment is very much in the company’s favour and keeping its name trending on social media can only help draw attention to it as an investment proposition. Big valuation But the problem I see is that share price valuation, with the stock on a P/E of 52 based on full-year forecasts. If those predictions prove accurate, Boohoo would need to see earnings per share multiply 3.7-fold in the coming years for the P/E to drop to around the FTSE 100 average — and that’s only if the share price doesn’t rise any further. Now, that might well happen, and current brokers’ price targets for up to 350p (around 25% higher than current levels) might come good. But I think I’m seeing a lot of optimism already in the share price, and against that possible 25% upside I’m seeing no safety margin to offset the downside risk. And when something goes wrong, which it inevitably will (even if it’s not of the same order of magnitude as ASOS’s problems this year), I think we could see a share price crunch.
algorithmicx: hTTps:// Boohoo shares just popped to a new all-time high. What’s the best move now? Blue-sky territory For starters, with the stock now in ‘blue-sky territory’, there’s no overhead resistance to hold it back. You see, when a stock is trading below a previous high (as Boohoo was for a while), you’ll always have disgruntled shareholders who are sitting on unrealised losses and are looking to sell out when the stock rises just to break-even (this is classic behavioural finance). This kind of behaviour creates a drag on upwards share price momentum. Yet once that overhead resistance has gone, there’s nothing to stop the stock rocketing higher. I think that’s what we’re seeing right now with Boohoo. It’s also worth pointing out that Boohoo shares spent around two years consolidating past gains between mid-2017 and mid-2019, while earnings continued to rise. This will have built up a fair bit of pressure. Broker price targets Next, it’s worth noting that a number of brokers have price targets for Boohoo that are higher than the current share price. For example, Goldman Sachs, which initiated coverage of the stock in late October, has a price target of 330p for the stock. Meanwhile, Peel Hunt and Jefferies have price targets of 350p and 325p respectively. So, brokers expect the stock to keep rising. Analyst upgrades In addition, analysts have been upgrading their earnings forecasts for Boohoo in recent months. According to Stockopedia, over the last three months, the consensus earnings per share (EPS) forecast for the year to February 2020 has risen from 4.98p to 5.27p. This is a positive for Boohoo’s share price as upgrades and downgrades are a key driver of share price movements. Earnings growth Finally, looking at the company’s popularity on social media, I’m expecting another strong set of results to come out next year. Given that the group generated adjusted diluted EPS of 2.91p in the first half of its financial year, I think there’s a good chance the company will beat the full-year consensus estimate of 5.27p. Overall, I remain quite bullish on Boohoo. Yes, the valuation is high (the forward-looking P/E is nearly 60), but this is a company that is growing at an extraordinary rate so it deserves a premium valuation. If you own the shares, as I do, I’d hold onto them. The trend is your friend.
algorithmicx: What are you on about. Labour on for its biggest defeat in history, they ain't going to win full stop. BOO share price isn't being driven by labour policy because they're never going to win. Your posts add negative value.
christh: Boohoo shares: here’s why I think they can keep rising Edward Sheldon, CFA | Wednesday, 2nd October, 2019 Businessman leading a chart upwards When I last covered online fashion retailer Boohoo (LSE: BOO) in late August, its share price was 228p. At the time, I noted that a number of directors were loading up on shares themselves (which is generally a bullish signal) and I said that, in my view, the risk/reward proposition of the stock was “favourable.” Fast forward to today, and Boohoo shares trade at 270p, meaning they’ve surged around 18% in less than six weeks – a great result for investors. However, looking at the growth story, I believe that there could be more upside on the cards. Here’s why. Excellent half-year results --------------------------------- Since my last report on Boohoo, the group has issued a two excellent updates. First, in early September, the company announced that its performance had been ahead of expectations and that it was upgrading its full-year revenue growth guidance to 33%-38%. Then, last week, the company issued fantastic interim results. For the six months to 31 August, revenue jumped 43%, while adjusted diluted earnings per share climbed 46%. The company also advised that international revenues are now 44% of total revenues. These updates show that Boohoo has significant momentum at the moment, both in the UK and internationally. If it can keep generating this kind of revenue and profit growth, I think the share price is likely to continue rising. Strong social media game -------------------------------------------------- One reason that I believe Boohoo is enjoying so much success right now is that it has a very effective social media strategy. By getting social media ‘influencers’ such as Love Island 2019 runner-up Molly-Mae Hague – who has over 3m Instagram followers – to promote its clothes, the group is able to generate a lot of interest among its target market. Looking at Instagram numbers, this strategy is working well. Currently, Boohoo has 6.1m followers, while its subsidiary Pretty Little Thing has 11.4m followers. By contrast, Next has 1.3m followers, while Superdry has 0.52m. Clearly, Boohoo has a strong online presence and this leads me to believe that the company should be able to continue to capture market share. Broker price targets --------------------------------------- Finally, I’ll point out that a number of brokers have price targets for Boohoo that are considerably higher than the current share price. For example, Jefferies has a price target of 325p, while Peel Hunt has a target of 350p – 30% above the current share price. Of the seven brokers covering the stock, six rate it as a ‘strong buy,’ which is a good sign. Additionally, brokers have been upgrading their earnings forecasts over the last month, which should also support the share price. I’d buy ----------------------------------- Now, I’ll point out that Boohoo shares aren’t cheap. With analysts forecasting earnings per share of 5.22p for the current financial year, they trade on a forward-looking P/E of 51. At that valuation, I wouldn’t want to be over-exposed to the stock. However, given the growth that the company is generating, I think a small allocation to Boohoo could be a good move. The company in question may have flown under your investment radar until now, but could help you to build a great income from your investments and retire early, pay off the mortgage, or simply enjoy a more abundant lifestyle. hTtps://
guruofcanada: Today’s muted stock market reaction to fashion retailer Boohoo’s (LSE: BOO) stonking half-year figures suggests the outcome was already in the price. And that’s the dilemma faced by investors with well-known growth stories. Although the firm’s operational progress is compelling, the valuation looks full to my eyes. Today’s share price close to 263p puts the forward-looking earnings multiple for the trading year to February 2021 at just above 40. Great results But I can’t deny the ‘awesomeness’ of these results. In the first half of the trading year, revenue rose 43% compared to the equivalent period the year before, adjusted diluted earnings per share shot up 46% and the company’s net cash position increased just over 33% to a little over £207m – Boohoo is raking it in, to use the vernacular, and the balance sheet is robust. Since starting up in Manchester in 2006, the company has been a rip-roaring success, growing rapidly in the UK and abroad with its offering for 16 to 40-year-olds. Today’s report reveals to us that strong revenue growth in the period was achieved “across all brands and geographies.” The firm has moved beyond its Boohoo brand and acquired PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal along the way. And in further extension of the strategy, the company acquired more brands in the period in the form of MissPap, Karen Millen and Coast, which it sees as complementary additions to its “scalable multi-brand platform.” Looking ahead, Boohoo expects revenue growth for the full year to come in between 33% and 38%, suggesting the company’s expansion programme remains in the fast lane. The directors exude confidence and predict that over the medium term they expect revenue to grow “at least” by 25% per year. Chief executive John Lyttle said in the report that Boohoo had achieved “significant” gains in market share, and he pointed out that revenue has exceeded £1bn over the past 12 months “for the first time in our history.” He anticipates further gains ahead, underpinned by the company’s “well-invested infrastructure”; and prowess in the execution of the service. A potential drag on share price performance I can’t help but share his enthusiasm and expectations for Boohoo’s operational growth, but whether the stock will make a decent investment from here is another question entirely. A glance at the share price chart makes it obvious that the best gains for shareholders occurred between early 2015 and mid-2017. Driven, no doubt, by the emergence of the growth story and a valuation re-rating upwards. However, the share first hit current levels around two years ago and has sagged in between. Meanwhile, with the market capitalisation now above £3bn, Boohoo is no longer a small-cap share. As all companies continue to grow, the larger they become, the more pressure there is for rates of growth to slow. When that happens, valuations can shrink too, which often puts a drag on the progress of a share price. I think such a scenario could play out with Boohoo now, so I’m looking for the next up-and-coming smaller-cap growth stocks instead.
guruofcanada: Greco I think your assessment is quite correct. ASOS took charge in creating new facilities. The headwinds here are the focus on environmental issues, the younger age group are highly sensitive to changing their opinions. As soon as they start to believe that fast fashion is bad they will turn against the brand rather than support it. Boo needs to get environmentally aware super fast! Americans still like outlet malls and shopping centres, there’s still plenty of scope for ASOS there. The article from fool is very accurate I believe because boo share price could fall out of “fashion”; quite easily and the share price would drop dramatically. It’s not like a blue chip stock at all, there is no dividend to support it and the multiples are way to high.
algorithmicx: At 3 yr highs.... hTTps:// ASOS’s share price has plummeted this year as profit warnings, bungled international expansion and fierce competition from rival Boohoo [BOO] weigh on the stock. To make matters worse, analysts think that there’s more downside to come. Small wonder that the former stock market darling is now one of the most shorted stocks on the FTSE 100. According to the Financial Times roughly 10% of ASOS' [ASC] stock is out on loan as traders try to profit from the online clothing retailer’s misfortune, a significant contrast to Boohoo's negligible short interest. One of those looking to benefit is Gladstone Capital Management who have been betting against ASOS since the start of last year. George Michelakis, founder of Gladstone Capital Management, wrote in a letter to investors: “Asos has demonstrated increasing signs of a strained business model.” Why is Boohoo so dominant? This year Boohoo’s market cap eclipsed ASOS’s, and now stands at £2.75 billion compared to ASOS’s £1.90 billion. Boohoo's success is its ability to acquire distinct brands to serve different audiences, often at knockdown prices. These include Nasty Gal, Karen Millen and Coast. For example, Nasty Gal appeals to a younger audience who will buy cheaper items in bulk. While Karen Millan will offer higher priced individual items aimed at an older, moneyed audience. This has helped Boohoo record quarterly revenue growth of 45.7% (TTM), well above ASOS's 13.5%. Things get even worse for ASOS when you compare its -87.8% quarterly earnings growth to Booboo’s 22.6%. Boohoo appears to have the rivalry sewn up, with this year’s profits forecast to be double that of ASOS. How do the share prices compare? Back in late April, ASOS and Boohoo's share price were both trending upwards for the year. Since then, the two stocks have experienced vastly different fortunes. ASOS stock is up just 0.42%, which compares poorly with Boohoo's huge 50% gain. A particularly bleak moment was 17 July when ASOS stock dropped a massive 23% following its second profit warning in the space of seven months. The warning revealed ASOS expected to make between £30 million and £35 million in 2019, a third of last year’s take and well below the City’s forecasted £55 million.
guruofcanada: The share price has risen since 56! That was when Mr Lyttle joined! Just search google for boo share price. It live updates. Showing 75! Still far too expensive for today’s market. ASOS is 1/3 the price and they already have new facilities setup in other countries
apad: Some v. large BOO-BUYS exposed late in the day and after hours. I think I'll keep my trading buys a little longer. Pity that BOO's success has rubbed off on SOS as I was looking to increase. Lyttle (Primark man) gets a bonus of £50million if the BOO share price rises to about £6.50 by 2023. So, how can this be achieved? Clearly the two Ks now have much more time to plan for multi-brand growth. I suppose SOS could be a target, but I suspect it isn't for sale. So, I am expecting a new in-house brand, say BOOKIDS. We need patience as the improvements in software and associated systems abroad will take time, as will the warehouse projects. The change in sentiment might well support/increase the share price in the near term, but maybe there needs to be some new news to provide a real stimulus. Anyroadup, the company now has a reputation for being independent from the overall sector sentiment, so I don't see a share price retracement - particularly as growth shares are now back in favour. apad 😇
