A Trio of Stocks Growing Revenue per Share

Over the past 5 years, they have topped the US market

September 16, 2020 | About:

The S&P 500 stocks have seen their collective yearly sales per share jumped by about 4% on average every year over the past five years. The share price of the index and benchmark for the U.S. stock market ($3,401.20 as of Tuesday) gained 73.7% over the past five years through Sept. 15.

Thus, investors may want to consider the following stocks, as they have performed better than the S&P 500 in terms of a superior five-year revenue per share growth rate.

The Estee Lauder Companies Inc

The first company that meets the criteria is The Estee Lauder Companies Inc (NYSE:EL).

The New York-based personal care products manufacturer and marketer saw its revenue per share advance 8% on average every year over the past five years.

This catalyst also contributed to the 176% stock price soar over the past five years, which is up to $217.76 per share at close on Tuesday for a market capitalization of $78.57 billion and a 52-week range of $137.01 to $224.23 per share.

GuruFocus assigned the company a positive financial strength rating of 5 out of 10 and a remarkably high profitability rating of 9 out of 10.

Wall Street sell-side analysts recommend an overweight rating for this stock and have established an average target price of $220.62 per share.

Nike Inc

The second company that qualifies is Nike Inc (NYSE:NKE).

The Beaverton, Oregon-based designer and seller of athletic footwear and accessories saw its revenue per share increase by 7.1% on average every year over the past five years.

Following this, the share price rose by 107% over the past five years, closing at $119.27 on Tuesday for a market capitalization of $186.05 billion and a 52-week range of $60 to $120.48.

GuruFocus assigned the company a positive financial strength rating of 6 out of 10 and a remarkably high profitability rating of 9 out of 10.

Wall Street sell-side analysts issued a buy recommendation rating for this stock and have set an average target price of $119.47 per share.

Lamb Weston Holdings Inc

The third company that makes the cut is Lamb Weston Holdings Inc (NYSE:LW).

The Eagle, Idaho-based producer and distributor of Lamb Weston branded frozen foods, sweet potatoes and various other commercial ingredients and antipasti worldwide saw its revenue per share increase by nearly 6% on average every year over the past five years.

As a result, the stock price has increased 98% over the prior five years, reaching $67.25 per share at close on Tuesday for a market capitalization of $9.77 billion and a 52-week range of $39.06 to $96.32.

GuruFocus assigned the company a moderate financial strength rating of 4 out of 10 and a good profitability rating of 7 out of 10.

Wall Street sell-side analysts recommend an overweight rating for this stock and have produced an average target price of $68 per share.
