The footwear retailer has suspended dividends and commenced store openings

The brick-and-mortar retail industry has been among the worst-hit sectors as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Even with the phased lifting of the lockdown and stores opening up, footfalls continue to be slow.

Footwear and sports apparel retailer Foot Locker Inc. (FL) is one such business, and this showed in its most recent results. The company has re-opened about 45% of its stores and expects business to slowly start picking up in the coming quarters.

After the suspension of dividends, the company is not a yield play for the time being, but I think the management is coping well

Companies with little or no debt have staying power when an unexpected emergency pops up

I love low-debt stocks.

Companies with little or no debt have staying power when an unexpected emergency pops up -- the current pandemic, for example. They almost never have to sell a promising division because they need cash. They may be able to launch new initiatives, make acquisitions or increase dividends.

My affection for low debt hasn’t always helped my clients’ returns. There are years when junk companies with high debt thrive, usually because interest rates are falling, making their debt less burdensome. But I think that a low-debt approach helps more often than it hurts.

The history of this

The company’s strategy may boost its financial performance

Foot Locker, Inc. (FL) offers good value for the money, in my view, after its 28% stock price decline in the past year.

After a couple of bad quarters, the retailer has finally delivered a decent result, stabilizing the stock price as its dividend and buyback yield continues to be phenomenal

The apparel retail industry in the U.S. has not had a great 2019 so far as the majority of the stocks of this sector listed on the New York Stock Exchange are in red. It is likely that investors are being extra cautious before investing in this space. In fact, there is a strong possibility that investments in apparel retail stocks are being re-evaluated especially of companies like Foot Locker (FL) whose stock price has taken a beating over the past few months. Foot Locker has been a clear underperformer in terms of its share price after some bad results

Guru stock highlight

Foot Locker (NYSE:FL)(FL - $41.92 – NYSE) is leading athletic shoe and apparel retailer. The company’s stock fell this past quarter after posting disappointing first-quarter earnings, reducing full-year earnings guidance, and issuing below-consensus same-store sales guidance for the second quarter. Foot Locker also bought back little stock in the first quarter, which pressured earnings, as share buybacks are part of its earnings growth algorithm. Despite its less-than-stellar earnings release, Foot Locker has several quarters ahead with easy same-store sales comparisons. Also, the company reaffirmed its guidance of mid-single-digit same-store sales growth for the full year. Furthermore, the turnaround at

A sound strategy could boost the stock’s performance

An increasing focus on improving the customer experience and differentiating itself from peers could lead to a successful recovery for Foot Locker (FL)'s stock price.

Having fallen 26% in the last year, it could be jolted by the impact of an improved shopping experience, as well as the rollout of its loyalty program.

Although tariffs pose a threat to the wider industry, the company’s focus on a broader customer base and improving efficiency may boost its financial outlook.

With a low valuation that suggests it has a wide margin of safety, the stock appears to have investment appeal.

Low debt is a characteristic I love when picking stocks

Low debt is a characteristic I love when picking stocks.

The low-debt stock list you are about to read is the 17th in a series, published pretty much every year in May. My picks in the first 16 low-debt lists have averaged a total return (including dividends) of 28.5% in 12 months, far ahead of the 9.7% average return on the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index for the same periods.

My low-debt choices have beaten the S&P 500 12 times out of 16, and been profitable 14 times.
