Urban Outfitters: The Expectations Are Low
Urban Outfitters (URBN) might consider changing its name to Anthropologie. I was surprised that sometimes small changes like changing the corporation's name to the most profitable of its brands can help to improve the perception of a company. A good example is Fifth & Pacific, which changed its name to Kate Spade (KATE). In fact, as my pendulum analysis implies, as the pendulum swings too far to the pessimistic side, there is a good chance that patient investors can gain a good return when the pendulum swings back to the optimistic side. After today's decline, I believe that too much bad news have been reflected in the current share price. In the bullish scenario, URBN can return back to $48, implying more than 50% upside potential.
