Longleaf manager exits position in popular department store chain

Southeastern Asset Management, the investment firm founded by Mason Hawkins (Trades, Portfolio) in 1975, disclosed it exited its stake in Dillard’s Inc. (DDS) last week.

According to GuruFocus Real-Time Picks, a Premium feature, the firm sold its 1.9 million remaining shares of the Little Rock, Arkansas-based retail company on July 10, impacting the equity portfolio by -1.68%. The stock traded for an average price

Stories of companies that richly rewarded their shareholders, despite being in challenged industries

If you run a multibillion-dollar mutual fund that’s constantly growing, you need many, many ways of finding prospective new investments. For Peter Lynch, the manager of Fidelity’s Magellan Fund between 1977 and 1990, one of those sources of ideas was identifying great companies in lousy industries.

Writing in chapter 11 of his 1993 book, “Beating the Street,” he argued that treasures could be found in junkyards. When industries are lousy, all but the strongest competitors are pushed out, and those that are strong end up with more market share. What’s more, he wrote:

“The greatest companies in lousy industries

Companies have low or no dividend yield

The following companies have recorded losses on the stock market over the past several years and will likely continue to do so as sell-side analysts on Wall Street have issued underweight recommendation ratings.

These companies also either significantly underperform the S&P 500 Index's dividend yield or do not pay a dividend. The S&P 500 index granted 1.92% as of Thursday.

Thus, investors may want to reduce their holdings of the following securities.

Dillard's Inc. (DDS) has declined 1.9% over the last week, 0.72% over the past three months, 6.81% so far this year, 25.10% over the last 52 weeks and

Greenlight Capital releases portfolio

David Einhorn (Trades, Portfolio), chairman of Greenlight Capital Re Ltd. (GLRE), disclosed this week his six new holdings for the fourth quarter of 2018 were Hilton Grand Vacations Inc. (HGV), EchoStar Corp. (SATS), Shutterfly Inc. (SFLY), Dillard’s Inc. (DDS), The Chemours Co. (CC) and CONSOL Energy Inc. (CEIX).

Managing a portfolio of 20 stocks, Einhorn believes that an investment approach emphasizing intrinsic value is capable of achieving positive investment returns and safeguarding capital regardless of market conditions. Unfortunately, this approach led to Einhorn positing a 34% nosedive in 2018, including a 9% decline in

Dollar Tree tops the list

If an economic recession is just around the corner in 2020, then investors better be prepared for the next market downturn by increasing their positions in high-quality companies.

During the financial crisis of 2008-09, which devastated the market with the S&P 500 Index suffering a substantial decline of 20.4% over the two-year period, there were stocks that managed to surge.

Most of them were retailers operating in the department and discount industry of the services sector, producing margins of over 30%. The reason why the market rewarded these players is very easy to understand. Even during an economic

The 2nd edition of 'The Forum Update'

Last week, we introduced “The Forum Update,” a weekly series of articles discussing top posts from the GuruFocus Forum. In the second edition, we will discuss the retail sector, one of the most cyclical market sectors in the U.S.

Retail sector background

Legendary investor Peter Lynch noted that luxury travel companies like Carnival Corp. (CCL) and brand-name companies like Michael Kors Holdings Ltd. (KORS) have cyclical business patterns. Such companies have high earnings near the peak of business cycles, resulting in artificially low price-earnings (P/E) ratios.

The retail sector primarily includes consumer cyclical

Comparative analysis on revenue and earnings for 5 major retailers

In light of the summer shopping season, retail-trade companies can expect high consumer traffic. Despite this five of the top brick-and-mortar companies reported weak second-quarter earnings, driving stock prices down.

JCPenney Co. Inc. (JCP)

On Aug. 11, JCPenney said second-quarter comparable sales declined 1.3% year over year despite total net sales increasing 1.5% year over year. According to CEO Marvin Ellison, the company “liquidated inventory in 127 of [JCPenney’s] closing stores,” which negatively impacted earnings and gross margins. JCPenney reported a net loss of $62 million, approximately $6 million worse than the net loss in the prior-year quarter.

Company has done well due to its locations and customer base

Dillard’s Inc. (DDS) is a department store that has been less affected by Amazon (AMZN) and the internet. The stock is down but has a massive free cash flow yield and management has been buying back stock. It could be a buy at the right time.

Here is a good article from GuruFocus that asks if Dillards is a value trap. The article was written back in January, so the answer is "yes." In another article, Mitchell Maeur opined if the pendulum had swung too far on Dillards. Maybe he was right. The article was written back in

The ability to read the customer is crucial in retail, but having loyal customers does not mean the stock price will fare well

The retail industry is changing due to the rise of e-commerce. And with the closure of the Limited stores, it appears a cycle rotation is going to be occurring. That means investors who put money into these stocks will likely underperform the overall market.

In the last decade, Dillard’s has seen its revenue and earnings decline. While the stock had a 10 times run after the housing crisis, the stock has lost about 60% of its market value since April of 2015.
