Coach, Inc (NYSE: COH, $40) O/S: 278.8m; Market cap: $11.07bn; EV: $10.52bn; P/E: 12; EV/EBITDA: 7
Coach is a luxury goods retailer and has been in the business for > 70 years. Company sells premium leather handbags, footwear, watches and accessories for women (80% of sales), men (10%) and other (10%). Coach sells its products in North America (70% of sales) and internationally (30%) including Japan and China.
Investment thesis:
After its recent free-fall (YTD-28%) due to weak Q3 results (SS sales down -13% q/q in 2Q and -21% q/q in 3Q in NA) and lower guidance, Coach offers a compelling long-term investment opportunity.
1. First, Coach is led by the one of the best management team in retail. 2004-2013, sales grew from $1.3b to $5.0b (CAGR 20%); FCF/share up from $0.99 to $4.10 (CAGR 17%)
2. Coach has strong moat (in terms of emotional attachment with customer); evidenced by ROC of ~35% consistently over the last 10 years.
3. Despite, stiff competition from Michael Kors, Coach achieves gross margins of 70%; best margins in the luxury retail sector
4. Growth prospects are robust as new product line (focused on Men) and geographic expansion (China sales up 25%) working well
5. Huge operating leverage
6. No debt; cash balance of ~$800m
All good, but why the market is punishing the stock/ bear hug?
1. NA sales decline intensified in Q3
2. Guidance lowered (management expects NA sales decline in 2015 also)
3. Dual sales (factory outlet and direct stores) channel might dilute the brand value
4. International sales might drag gross margins as competition intensifies
5. Market has recently seen many retail turnarounds failing (JC Penny)
Argument: Sales decline; management is
- NA gross margins are at (68% to 63%) and International gross margins are at (80%) - effects of foreign currency translation should be noted.
- International expansion should boost sales growth
- Huge margin of safety
- Intrinsic value in different scenario
- Bull Case: $74 (upside 84%); Bear Case: $52 (upside 30%); Base case:$62(upside 54%)
