stewar06: Citi tells investors to take a punt on Boohoo after recent share price slide 2018-01-16 10:36:00 Shares are off some 30% from the highs they hit over summer, and Citi feels the market has now more than factored in Boohoo’s reinvestment costs over the next couple of years boohoo advert Boohoo expects revenues to almost double in this current financial year Shares in online fashion retailer PLC (LON:BOO) have lost almost 30% since last summer’s highs and Citi bank reckons they’re now worth a punt. Analysts at the bank’s London branch previously felt the stock was too pricey but think the shares now “better reflect downside risk on margins as [the] company invests for long-term growth”. READ: Boohoo reports record revenues after best ever Black Friday As is the way for a lot of growth companies, Boohoo has reached a point where it is beginning to outgrow its current production and distribution facilities due to its rising popularity. Citi’s Dan Hofman said the market wasn’t taking into account just how much the AIM giant needed to reinvest, although he believes consensus estimates are now more reasonable. He has trimmed future years’ pre-tax profits forecasts by between 6% and 9% “to better capture planned reinvestment in all group brands”. READ: drops amid margin pressures as it raises full-year revenue outlook again as first-half profits surge Speaking of brands, Hofman really likes the potential of PrettyLittleThing and Nasty Gal, as evidenced by their massive social media reaches. “On Instagram and Youtube, PrettyLittleThing has greater than twice the engagement of ASOS or Boohoo brands, highlighting that sales have yet to scale to potential and underpinning near term growth forecasts. Nasty Gal has similar social media presence as PLT despite 1/6th of the sales base.” The analyst has upgraded Boohoo to a ‘buy’, with a price target of 235p. On Tuesday afternoon, shares fell 2.2% to 181p.
cycle2: @meijiman Can I point out that nobody actually knows that it's margin loss that has caused the share price to behave as poorly as it has in the last 6 months. Yes, that's what analysts will say but then they have to have a reason to explain everything otherwise they look stupid (easy when looking backwards, not so easy looking forwards ;-)). I prefer a simpler explanation: we've had two things occurring: 1. A large seller or sellers who have been dumping stock. We're aware of Carol Kane's sale and now Jalaludin Kamani having passed a reportable threshold but we don't know of who else might be offloading stock. It takes large players a very long time to do so. 2. It seems that buying pressure from institutions has dried up or reduced considerably. We've not had a threshold RNS from Old Mutual in a while, who were the ones loading up 12 months ago. We kid ourselves if we think that PI purchases make much difference with a market cap this high. Does moving from 10% to 9.5% margin really matter when you have 100% annual growth? I think not, particularly when BOO's management can simply choose what margin they want by adjusting marketing spending (they've actually said that in the past). At the moment they judge it more prudent to go for market share growth and let the margin slip a tiny bit to 9.5% - good for them! Remember, they are very experienced in this field. Is that the reason for the share price dropping 40% from highs? I don't think so. For whatever reason the big players are buying less aggressively or have reached a quota or something like that. As the company continues to grow at an astounding rate, the forward P/E and figures will look increasingly attractive and at some point institutional buying will ramp up again. Or perhaps Jalaludin Kamani will have sold enough for a nice yacht. Once that happens there will be no stopping the share price.
trendtrader89: New to the forum but as a holder been reading this thread for a while now with interest. As someone who will admit to shopping at next, asos & boohoo, reading your comparisons between these 'rivals' I'm not sure some of you are aware that next and asos each sell hundreds of boohoo products and lines. This might also explain the bump in boo share price upon next increased online sales plus broker buy ratings.
knowing: Boohoo.Com PLC 53.4% Potential Upside Indicated by Deutsche Bank Posted by: Amilia Stone 2nd January 2018 Boohoo.Com PLC using EPIC/TICKER code (LON:BOO) had its stock rating noted as ‘Reiterates217; with the recommendation being set at ‘BUY’ this morning by analysts at Deutsche Bank. Boohoo.Com PLC are listed in the Consumer Services sector within AIM. Deutsche Bank have set their target price at 290 GBX on its stock. This would imply the analyst believes there is now a potential upside of 53.4% from the opening price of 189 GBX. Over the last 30 and 90 trading days the company share price has increased 5 points and decreased 22.75 points respectively. The 1 year high for the stock price is 328.93 GBX while the 52 week low for the share price is 1.89 GBX.
kuss1: chopshs, I didn't say they were irrelevant just not as relevant as many think when you have a company riding the wave of social change. If the company is successful and generating cash the metrics will follow in due course. I recall when Amazon was on a pe of 3000, now it's around 400. Asc a pe of 80 and the share price still going up. ocdo 350. As for the competition, there will always be competition in any market and with any product. Doesn't matter what you make. The question is who's got the advantage. Boo are ahead of the game is all. The youth market buy Boo because they have what they want at a cheap price with good quality. Boo have extended their brands to Nasty Gal and PLT, too. Nacent growth into the USA and Europe. Margins still twice those of asc. Think amazon's margins are 1%. Boos are predicted to settle around 10% once benefits of scale and gearing kick in. If you think Boo will grow to 3 billion revenue on 10% margins then they are worth the investment. If Boo can make 50 million net profit this year the pe will have fallen to around 40, dropping to 20 the following year on 100% growth. NG used to generate 300 million in revenue. Boo should be able to get this to 30 million in just 9 months with growth a 100% per quarter. At that rate they should be back to 300 million in around 14 months... Broker forecasts all 260 plus up to 300. I'm sure they can do the eps and p/e sums. So why so high?
cycle2: As a long term holder here (I bought my first BOO shares at 25.5pence and have topped up several times since), I've been surprised and perplexed by the extent of the drop. Unlike other posters, I don't think it's just to do with the market punishing growth stocks, or the P/E being too high since in my opinion BOO justifies its metrics. Rather, there seems to have been a shift in short-term retail investor sentiment. I suspect that many of us long-term holders don't have a lot of spare extra cash to put into BOO right now and that we've seen the reaction of predominantly short-term traders who took profits quickly, or longer term investors who hit stop losses when the share price continued to plummet. So, what to make of it? Should we all just sell up? To answer that with more than personal opinions (of which there have been quite enough on this board in the last 2 days) I took time today to listen to and take notes from the company conference call, which I highly recommend. As fuji99 wisely counselled (post 7922), really good investors 'Never follow the herd. Trust yourself and DYOR and keep calm in your convinctions. ' Several things really stood out from the conference call: 1. As someone involved in running an internet business myself, I was astounded by the figure they gave that 28% of their customers share photos of their recent purchases on social media. Carol Kane said this engagement is growing and is great free marketing. That's incredible - I really wish 28% of the customers in the business I work for would do that! What an incredible relationship they're building with millions of customers! Also of note on social is that they have 9 million Instagram followers, compared to 5 million on Facebook. For those in the know this is very good: Instagram is where the young audience are and photos you post on it are shown more widely to your circle of friends than Facebook's algorithms that prioritise adverts. It's perfect for peer-influencers. 2. They see BoohooMAN as a 4th brand. I don't recall them talking about it this way before but they now firmly see it as a major future contributor to growth. It currently carries only 4,000 lines (cf Boohoo's 36,000) and they see massive growth opportunities and are engaging celebrities etc. So we are now dealing with a 4 brand company, not 3 (and I'd be surprised if more aren't added in the future). 3. They've invested heavily in moving all websites to the Demandware platform. English language ones are now migrated and foreign language ones will be by the end of this year. The CFO described some pretty great features of this, including the ability to heavily personalise the shopping experience to the customer, even doing things like changing the menu items and recommendations if they know there's a customer who is 'petite' size shopping. The platform can even send out different emails depending on what you did on site and they said they're just at the tip of exploiting the possibilities. Already websites they have migrated have shown increased conversion rates. 4. They have an amazingly fast engagement of new celebrity trends. They mentioned how within 24 hours of the Love Island final they had signed the winner and within 1 week had done photo shoots and had them on the website. Pretty impressive. 5. Warehouse expansion is progressing faster than anticipated - the new Burnley extension will complete by year end and and will then have automation added in the following year. That brings £1 billion net sales capacity which it sounds like they'll need soon. The 'super site' (that they raised equity for earlier in the year) will have plans finalised and land purchased by financial year end. That's a 3 year project which will launch with full automation and add another £2bn net sales capacity. Full automation = lower fulfilment costs which is great from a bottom line point of view. 6. Lots of questions from analysts about the margin drop of course. The company makes a convincing case that the margin drop is due to huge investment in the new brands that have been brought on board this year: PLT (lots of marketing and team expansion, doubling the number of lines etc) and Nasty Gal (new HQ in Manchester, new building in LA, building substantial team in LA, marketing not only in US but internationally). One interesting comment the CFO made was that the margins of these new brands, although not as good as their existing Boohoo brand, were better than for the Boohoo brand when it was at the same growth stage - they put a lot of emphasis on Operational Leverage that you gain when multiple brands share the same fulfilment and website infrastructure. That being said, I don't think the margins will be going back up significantly, but only because they're so fully committed to spending the extra on marketing to make the most of their first-mover advantage in social selling. 7. Nasty Gal used to be selling other brands before they bought it which will have cost them margin, they've turned it into a pure-play brand where they produce everything. That takes time and investment but they said it's going very well with consistent Month-on-month and Year-on-year growth. They expect 80% growth year-on-year, albeit from a low base and are predicting £20m sales for the year. Sounds to me like they're making an excellent job of reviving a brand that was nearly trashed through it's poor previous management. There's your stellar growth for 2020 in my opinion. Overall, they see huge opportunity and are going full-steam-ahead for it. What more could we ask for? So, personally I remain a long-term holder. Anyone who's listed to the conference call have other insights to contribute?
cycle2: A few posts ago I mentioned that BOO has a very reliable record of rallying in the 2 weeks prior to results. I've just done a bit more research and found that this pattern appears to be very reliable. In fact, there has been a positive rally in share price for EVERY result-influencing RNS for the last 2 years (13 to be precise). The last one with a negative return was the Preliminary Results in May 2015 which was just 4 months after the initial profit warning drop. I thought it might be helpful to share these findings below... METHODOLOGY - I have included all 'results-influencing' RNSs which is my definition of news that could change the share price (as opposed to notices of dates etc) - For the comparison, this takes the closing price on the day of the update and compares it with the closing price of the trading day 2 weeks before and 4 weeks before. So, if the trading update was on a Wednesday, I went back to 2 Wednesdays before and 4 Wednesdays before. - This is just a quick set of results - there could be mistakes as it hasn't been double-checked. RESULTS I've formatted this using '...' between columns because tables paste so badly. So the two percentage numbers are for percentage change if you had bought at close 2 weeks before results and percentage change if you had bought at 4 weeks before results. DATE ...

Results and trading update ... +1% ... -1.5% 05/06/2014 ... Comment on share price movement (in-line with expectations) ... +2.8% ... -14.3% DISCUSSION Some of these positive share price rises will just have been the fact that this has been a highly trending stock (in fact by my measure, the best performing stock on the whole of the LSE over much of the period). However, there does still seem to be a significant 'pre-results' rally, presumably caused by traders coming in before the scheduled results to turn a quick profit, or perhaps insiders (employees or their family members?) though I think that's less likely in this particular case (unlike much of AIM). Of course, the question is, what about the share price since the June update when we had the exponential rally followed by a correction? I've already shared that I think the price action since then has formed a nice double-pullback and is looking good. If you look at ratios, the forward P/E ratio is now back to its usual value of 70 (reasonable for a game-changing high growth stock like this) and the share price looks to be back near the lower limits of the trend it has been following. Most importantly, we're now dealing with revenue from 3 brands and the forward guidance looked to be conservative to those of us who have been following this share for some time, particularly for the new brands. It seems to me that it's far more likely this company will surprise to the upside than the downside given what we know of the management, their strategy and the growth prospects. DISCLOSURE Long-term followers will know that I've been long this stock for over 2 years since Paul Scott highlighted it on Stockopedia (remember that?) and have added on numerous occasions on the way up. I have managed to 'find' some more money to top up again today, so I am not an unbiased commentator. I do however appreciate sensible, thoughtful discussion from both sides - long and short and try to keep myself open to hearing all well-researched views.
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.
