undervaluedassets: WOSG mentioned in weekend FT yesterday. The piece highlighted the fact that the company has benefitted from lockdown. Those bored at home have bought watches using personalised one-to-one online video showings. The discretionary spending of the rich, with nowhere else to go during the lockdown, has found an outlet at Watches of Switzerland. Niche stock with little competition.
weemonkey: My nap for 2021 this stock. Just off conference call. Nice simple, well run business. Free cashflow generation struck me as particularly impressive. ROCE going up - now 17% up from 15% last year. Olympics and Bond movie set to be helpful. Plus of course more normal post-COVID trading conditions. So lots to look forward to. Fun fact gleaned from call.. The price of luxury watches has increased by 3% per annum on average for last 20 years.
thomshrike: Maybe a bit too cynical, but LVMH looking for any excuse not to own Tiffany should raise the question why we should own WOSG.
thomshrike: Hi Mach, First of all: coming back to my previous comment, I now presume that indeed the consensus estimates were post IFRS16 (whereas the company guides pre IFRS16), so I stand corrected and it seems that there is indeed an implicit upgrade to FY21 ebitda consensus of around +5%. And I do certainly agree with you with the business being adaptable to some extent to zoom meetings. In fact the company is even talking about experimenting with AR so that customers can remotely see how the watch will look like on their wrists. Additionally, even inside the stores, it is a business that works well with social distancing: low footfall and good conversion. I would even add another positive, which is the fact that luxury watches work well as storage of value, akin to the recent rally of the price of gold. It is difficult to evaluate if those factors are enough to offset the disappearance of the foreign tourist. Yes, their FY21 guidance is above consensus, but longer term comments were more sobering. But clearly I agree with you in that, at least on relative terms, they have the conditions to do much better than the average listed retailer.
mach100: Interesting suppositions there Throm and you may be proved right. Certainly the jump today may tempt profit takers tomorrow. What retail company incidentally that is not tech based or domestic household improvement centred would you expect to match 2019 sales in this Covid environment? I think actually as many retail outlets are just showrooms these days that online is where it is at anyway and WOSG is growing strongly. Cov19 has also increased disposible income as people have less and often no transport costs and no impulse or other buys of sandwiches and other lunches. I think WOSG watches would look particularly good on Zoom or MS Teams as I do an accidental stretch while speaking to inadvertently display my nice watch. May be a dip tomorrow but the company expects to be at the top end of guidance and that is no mean feat when you consider current disruption. Cov19 appears to be unwinding for now so perhaps we just have to adjust our watches to the new normal.
typo56: RFX today bodes well. Statement includes "Sales of premium watch brands such as Rolex and Breitling and our unique second-hand jewellery pieces also achieved strong growth." I think we should expect a secondary placing in WOSG at some point this year, which will suppress the price.
