    By AnnaLisa Kraft - August 16, 2013 | Tickers: CROX, DECK, SHOO

    If you read financial headlines at all you know Macy's and Wal-Mart took hits after lowering guidance, sending the market down two days in a row. On their conference call, Macy's stressed they were pushing boots aggressively and a good boot season was of utmost importance.

    This is especially important for shoe makers Deckers Outdoor (NASDAQ: DECK), Steve Madden (NASDAQ: SHOO), and Crox (NASDAQ: CROX), all of whom more »

  • Is There Upside for This Footwear Business?

    By Anh HOANG - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: CROX, DECK, NKE

    Recently, shares of Crocs (NASDAQ: CROX) dropped significantly, from $17.30 per share to only around $13.70 per share. The recent decline in its share price was due to the sluggish second quarter earnings results, which were much lower than management’s guidance. At the current trading price, Crocs seems to be quite cheap at only 5.5 times its trailing EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization more »

  • Skechers’ Turnaround Is On Track

    By Dusan Jovanic - August 2, 2013 | Tickers: DECK, NKE, SKX

    Skechers (NYSE: SKX) delivered a substantial earnings beat when it reported second-quarter earnings in late July. The company continues to recover from the toning shoes disaster in 2011, which caused a steep fall in its revenue and profitability. The strong recovery is a result of the company’s overall efforts to develop new products and diversify its product line. The changes are evident in Skechers’ top and bottom lines, which more »

  • Crikey! Crocs Isn’t a Crock

    By Dan Moskowitz - August 1, 2013 | Tickers: CROX, DECK, SKX

    Not too long ago, Crocs (NASDAQ: CROX) took the world by storm. Clogs became a household name, and the stock sprinted higher. Unfortunately for Crocs, that kind of momentum is now a distant memory. For example, the stock has depreciated 11% over the past year. And clogs aren’t the hottest thing in footwear anymore. On the surface, it looks like the stock should be avoided at all costs, but more »

  • Take Advantage of This Overreaction

    By Timothy Green - August 1, 2013 | Tickers: CROX, DECK, NKE

    When shoe maker Crocs (NASDAQ: CROX) reported second quarter earnings last week the stock got destroyed, falling 20% on the following day. While revenue grew substantially earnings came in well below analyst estimates, which the company blamed on a colder-than-normal spring season. The stock now trades for around $13.50 per share after approaching $18 earlier this year, and Barron's believes that there is significant upside going forward. I more »

  • Speciality Shoes Took a Decking

    By Marshall Hargrave - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: DECK, NKE, SKX

    The maker of the famous UGG boots, Deckers Outdoor (NASDAQ: DECK), nosedived 9% last week despite posting better-than-expected EPS. The big news was an $0.85 per-share loss, which happened to be $0.21 less than consensus. 

    But its UGG brand saw sales down 6.9% year-over-year. Deckers relies heavily on its UGG brand, which is not a hot topic given that it's currently the middle of the summer more »

  • A Cold Winter Could Take This Company to the Next Level

    By Matthew Frankel - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: COH, DECK, KORS

    I have been a big fan of Deckers Outdoor Corp (NASDAQ: DECK) for some time now. They produce a great product and have excellent brand recognition, especially with their UGG and Teva brands. However, the last time I wrote about Deckers was in February when shares were trading at just over $40 per share and looked like a screaming buy. Well, it looks like I was right. Fast-forward a few more »

    By Sarfaraz Khan - July 17, 2013 | Tickers: DECK, NKE, UA

    The world’s leading sports goods company Nike (NYSE: NKE) recently released quarterly results that topped analysts’ estimates. But the company is now expecting a decline in China in the next two quarters, and it has lowered its annual revenue and income estimates. Nike’s strengths come from good revenue and income growth, reasonable fundamentals and a stock that has outperformed the S&P 500 this year. But its current more »

  • Are Shorts Finally Leaving These Stocks?

    By Brian Nichols - July 8, 2013 | Tickers: DECK, JCP, OUTR, QCOR, SPPI

    For the last several years, certain stocks have remained cheap as the overwhelming presence of short sellers have made it more difficult for shares to break out. On July 4, Bespoke Investment Group’s list of the most heavily shorted S&P 500 stocks was released, showing data as of June 15. A comparison of data from late February shows that short sellers might finally be leaving some of the more »

  • This Footwear Company Remains a Bargain Despite the Industry’s Recent Surge

    By Colin Tweel - June 19, 2013 | Tickers: DECK, NKE, WWW

    American consumer confidence rose to a five-year high in May according to the Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index. A soaring stock market and growing strength in the housing industry has Americans feeling wealthier and more willing to return to their historical consumerism despite intractable unemployment figures.

    With Americans reporting renewed confidence in the economy, the stocks of many of the corporations who thrive on American consumerism have surged. One more »

  • A Rigged Market? It's OK With Me

    By Bob Chandler - June 18, 2013 | Tickers: DECK, HUM, WLP | Editor's Choice

    There seems to be plenty of evidence suggesting that some players in the market have a significant advantage when compared to the average investor. While it’s legal, it also implies the market is hardly a level playing field. But this is OK. Individual investors can still profit from this rigged game, and they can even capitalize on big players' advantages.

  • How to Profit From the Upcoming M&A Boom?

    By RJ Towner - June 5, 2013 | Tickers: SAM, DECK, MDLZ, PEP, TIF

    In spite of low interest rates, rising equity prices, and general economic improvement, mergers and acquisition activity has remained relatively weak for the past few years. Although we have seen a few deals surface this week, we, at Valuentum, believe activity could accelerate in the coming months, especially if companies begin to recognize the possibility of rising interest rates, as outlined in the following piece: “The Impact of the US more »

  • Two Fad Footwear Stocks to Avoid and One to Buy

    By Leo Sun - May 14, 2013 | Tickers: CROX, DECK, SKX

    Short-term traders love fad stocks. The public’s temporary infatuation with a hot product often causes investors to turn a blind eye to basic stock fundamentals, which often causes big rallies that can translate into big profits for traders. However, long-term investors should be wary of top-heavy fad stocks, which could unexpectedly fall off a cliff once the public tires of a product, or if it becomes commoditized through imitation more »

    By Dusan Jovanic - May 6, 2013 | Tickers: CROX, DECK, NKE, SKX

    Skechers (NYSE: SKX) is recovering from a disastrous fall the company faced in 2011. The fallout in toning shoes brought earnings into negative territory with a 20% drop in revenue.

    The Value Investing Congress is the go-to event for value investors on a par with Berkshire Hathaway's annual lovefest (also called the shareholder meeting). But Buffettpalooza is not the market mover for individual stocks that the VIC is.

  • Are Ugg Boots Back in Style?

    By Fani Kelesidou - May 1, 2013 | Tickers: DECK, SHOO, WWW

    Deckers Outdoor (NASDAQ: DECK), the company behind the Ugg brand, was sort of left up the creek last October when its shares reached rock-bottom levels. Everyone assumed that Uggs had gone out of style. But a cold winter, a turn lower in fleece prices, and a couple of analysts' upgrades were enough to jump-start the stock price. Deckers is up by almost 35% year-to-date. Not only that, but last Thursday more »

  • These Are the Most Interesting Earnings Releases Next Week

    By Sam Mattera - April 19, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, CAT, DECK, OUTR, ZNGA

    Earnings results are, over the long-term, the most fundamental factors behind a stock’s performance. That said, for some companies, certain quarters are more noteworthy than others.

    With earnings season in full swing, it is an impossible task for most to track every release. If investors pay attention to only five earnings releases next week, they should be those from: Caterpillar (NYSE: CAT), Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA), Coinstar more »
