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.
algorithmicx: hTTps:// When is Boohoo’s results date? Boohoo will unveil its half-year results on September 25. Boohoo’s results preview: What does the City expect? Boohoo is one of UK’s top performing stocks, with its strong performance helping its share price climb higher since the online fashion retailer listed back in March 2014. The company’s low-cost collections remain popular with consumers which has helped it record strong sales growth, with first quarter group revenues up 39% to £253.3 million. ‘An exclusively online presence means the group can stock small quantities of lots of different styles and ramp up marketing and stock for the most popular,’ Hargreaves Lansdowne equity analyst George Salmon said. ‘This 'test and repeat' model means boohoo is ideally placed to keep up with the frantic pace of fast fashion.’ ‘An online model also means expansion is easier than a bricks and mortar retailer, which helps boohoo pursue growth at a snappy pace,’ he added. City analysts certainly agree with Salmon, with Liberum Capital and Peel Hunt both reiterating buy ratings for the stock in September, giving Boohoo a target share price of 320p and 350p respectively. Boohoo stock soars after boosting full-year guidance Boohoo upgraded its full-year guidance on Thursday after seeing stronger-than-expected sales growth, with the online fashion retailer expecting sales to increase by between 33% and 38% (against previous guidance of 25% to 30%). The company anticipates EBITDA margins for the financial year to remain at around 10% - in line with previous guidance - reflecting recent M&A activity over the first-half of the financial year, with it acquiring Miss Pap in March and more recently snapping up Karen Millen and Coast out of administration. The online fashion retailer also acquired PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal in 2017. Boohoo saw its stock climb as much as 20% on in early-September after upgrading its full-year guidance, with the stock trading at an all-time high of 285p a share. The online fashion retailer has benefitted from consumers shift to online, with its stock up more than 50% since January and high street rivals becoming attractive targets. Boohoo’s recent run of form has seen it outpace online rival ASOS in terms of market value after the latter was hit by two consecutive profit warnings. The former boasting a market cap of £3.15 billion compared to its competitor’s £2.30 billion.
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
christh: Here’s why Boohoo shares are climbing higher By Graeme Evans from interactive investor. Thursday 2 May 2019 11:39 am Stock markets are struggling on boohoo's results day, but the retailer is defying the gloom. Fast fashion is back in vogue on the London market, with well-received results from Boohoo adding to euphoria over a spectacular 2019 for shares in AIM-listed rival ASOS (LSE:ASC). Their recent turnaround follows an uncertain couple of years for both stocks, with margin worries and increased competition raising question marks over their lofty valuations. For Manchester-based Boohoo (LSE:BOO), which trades as, PrettyLittleThing and NastyGal, last week's annual results addressed some of those fears after a strong end to its financial year boosted optimism that it can achieve a 10 per cent operating margin going forward. Shares climbed 4%to take this year's improvement to 35%, although the stock is still short of the 266p peak of just under two years ago. Analysts at Peel Hunt think that Boohoo – under its new CEO, the former Primark boss John Lyttle – can fill that gap and go on to reach 300p. That's despite Boohoo's annual sales of £856.9 million being dwarfed by its current £2.5 billion market capitalisation. Until recently it had been neck-and-neck with ASOS, but its rival is now worth £3.3 billion after soaring in recent weeks despite a disappointing second quarter update. The momentum at Boohoo reflects the exceptional performance of PrettyLittleThing, which doubled full-year revenues to £374.4 million after growing its number of active customers by 70 per cent to five million. The trend-setting brand originated as an accessories-only website when it was founded in 2012, before Boohoo paid £3.3 million for 66 per cent of the business in January 2017. Its offer is clearly resonating with consumers, with high profile celebrity associations driving traffic and international expansion, particularly in the United States. PrettyLittleThing sales now appear to be on course to overtake the core brand, which grew revenues by a more modest 16 per cent to £434.6 million from a base of seven million active customers. Across the group, revenues for the year to February 28 were up 48% and stronger than the company's 43%-45% guidance at the time of the post-Christmas trading update. Adjusted profits rose 49% to £76.3 million, which was about 8%stronger than City forecasts. The strong end to the financial year means guidance for 2020 is now towards the top end of current forecasts, with anticipated revenues growth of between 25 per cent and 30 per cent within reach if the recent performance continues. The company thinks an adjusted operating margin of around 10 per cent is achievable over the medium term, having reached 9.9 per cent last year. Analysts will be relieved at Boohoo's margin outlook and the company's confidence to sell at full prices at a time when the clothing market is so competitive. The gross margin for last year increased to 54.7% from 52.8%, with PrettyLittleThing achieving a figure of 56.6%. The company's focus on key international markets has also been successful, producing growth of 64% and increasing international revenues to 43% of the group total. Substantial investments have been completed to secure warehouse capacity for growth and improve the future efficiency of its Burnley warehouse with automation. Cash flow generation has been strong, with free cash flow up 118% to £65.1 million. Lyttle, who spent eight years as Primark's chief operating officer, has been at the helm since mid-March. He said investment in brands and infrastructure meant the group was "well-positioned to disrupt, gain market share and capitalise on what is a truly global opportunity." -------------------------------------------------------------------- My Comments ------------------------ Comparing the results last month and Wednesdays trading update the growth has prevailed and trading is grown beyond belief with global sales mainly Europe to hit record levels. BOOHOO is now a brand and will outgrow most of its peers such as Asos, Next etc. The new ceo has set out to treble the shareprice with many incentives. Most of the brokers have noticed the figures and set the target prices for the share price to 300p-325p Buying at the current price it is a bargain for big profits.
christh: PANMURE Boohoo has reported impressive Q1 growth with strong gains across all regions. We believe the business is strategically well positioned for long term expansion and that current run-rate growth is undervalued. Strong Q1 performance. boohoo continues to deliver exceptional growth with revenue +39% to £254m. A 27% uptick in UK revenue -the most mature region, representing 57% of revenue in 2019A –strikes us as particularly impressive given the challenging UK consumer environment. Gross margin maintained at c55%. No change to forecasts. The business looks to be running ahead of our estimates (2020E FY revenue growth +31%) however we consider it too early to push through upgrades. Management guidance also remains unchanged. Powerful platform for expansion. boohoo is delivering impressive growth across all brands (boohoo +27%, PrettyLittleThing +42%, Nasty Gal +153%) and all regions (UK +27%, EU +72%, US +64%, RoW +26%). We believe this demonstrates the effectiveness of the model with its fast fashion, value-led offering winning market share. High stock turn and limited software development spend results in substantial cash generation (net cash increased to £194m), providing the resources to self-fund further expansion. Reiterate BUY recommendation. With a multi-brand, international strategy we believe boohoo is well positioned for long term expansion and that the current run-rate of growth is being fundamentally undervalued. Benchmarking against Inditex we see upside of over 30% to the current share price. PEEL HUNT Relevance wins. Despite the weak High Street and industry data, boohoo has enjoyed one if its strongest weeks outside of peak in May, as the group’s brands continue to resonate strongly with customers across all markets. Group revenue growth of 39% for Q1 came ahead of consensus (+35%) but behind our top-of-the range 43.8%. Group gross margin was down 20bps in the quarter, in line with our expectations. Combined group performance put boohoo at the top of the UK Hitwise rankings in May, for the first time. By territory, the group continues to make strong progress across all markets, with UK +27%, Europe +72% and the US +64%. boohoo brand momentum continues. boohoo brands continued the strong momentum shown in P4 (Jan/Feb 2019), with sales up 27% to £123.5m, coming in ahead of consensus (18%) and PHe (25%). Strong gross margin performance, +210bps illustrates the strength of the offer. Nasty Gal starting to resonate in the UK. Nasty Gal also performed strongly, with the brand is running ahead of PLT at the same stage in its lifecycle. Sales increased by 153% to £18.2m, ahead of PHe (+132%) and consensus (74%). Medium term growth assumptions for Nasty Gal are relatively modest (50%-60% for the next two years) against the aggressive historical growth profiles of boohoo and PLT, suggesting medium term upside if Nasty Gal can develop into a similar scale business as the lead two brands. PLT sales +42%, but below consensus. The gap to our numbers was on PLT, with sales up 42% – consensus was looking for 53% growth, PHe assumptions were set at 60%. Coming up against c+160% comparatives, we are very relaxed on performance, as PLT continues to deliver strong growth and customer KPIs. Both the market and our growth profile assumes a slowing growth rate over 2019/20. PLT margins were also down 280bps over Q1, coming up against tough comparatives. Looking ahead, PLT comparatives fall sharply in Q2 against last year’s warehouse move, suggesting the growth rate should pick up. Forecasts unchanged, reiterate Buy. The Buy case for boohoo is built on the foundation of global relevance and significant medium term potential across all markets, rather than quarterly targets. The resurgence of boohoo brand and the development of Nasty Gal both score highly on this front. PLT’s growth rate against tough comparatives remains impressive, albeit below market expectations this quarter. Overall, this another strong performance against a weakened High Street backdrop. Trades on 42x PER, 21x EV/EBITDA, 2x sales the shares trade on a deserved premium to peers
guruofcanada: Seems like I’m not alone in my thoughts, or will you say every analyst that says anything negative must be a “meany sourpuss”! The Boohoo Group (LSE: BOO) share price motored ahead on Wednesday after the firm said pre-tax profit rose by 38% to £59.9m last year. The fast fashion group has been a stunning success for investors — the shares have risen by nearly 400% over the last three years. But can this momentum continue? I’m not so sure. Today I want to explain my view on Boohoo and suggest a FTSE 100 growth stock I’d consider instead. Insider ownership I normally see family ownership of listed businesses as an attraction for stock market investors. As a general rule, I believe that such owners tend to have a long-term, conservative focus that helps to avoid mishaps and provide reliable shareholder returns. Boohoo certainly ticks the boxes here. Co-founders Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane control more than 20% of the group’s shares. Other members of Mr Kamani’s family appear to own a further 17.1% of BOO stock. However, I’m less keen on the ownership structure of Boohoo’s star brand PrettyLittleThing. Sales at this young fashion brand rose by 107% to £374m last year. This meteoric growth means that PrettyLittleThing now rivals core Brand boohoo, where sales rose by just 16% to £435m. I don’t know why Boohoo is growing so slowly compared to PrettyLittleThing. But I do know that PrettyLittleThing was founded by Umar and Adam Kamani, the sons of Boohoo co-founder Mahmud Kamani. When Boohoo acquired PrettyLittleThing in 2017, it only took a 66% stake. The remaining 34% of PrettyLittleThing is held by other investors, presumably the original founders. Why this matters Boohoo Group’s after-tax profit for 2018/19 was £47.4m. But BOO shareholders are only entitled to £37.7m of this income. The remaining £9.7m goes to outside shareholders in Boohoo’s subsidiaries. I suspect that most of this relates to PrettyLittleThing. What this means is that more than 20% of Boohoo’s profits went to outside investors last year. Earnings for Boohoo shareholders only rose by 19% to 3.22p per share. With the shares trading above 230p, that prices the stock at roughly 70 times earnings. This valuation is too high for me, especially as shareholders aren’t getting the full benefit of strong growth at PrettyLittleThing. I’d avoid the shares at this level.
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 😇
