Came across Cannon, Royal Velvet, or Fieldcrest while in the market for towels? This diverse range of brands has one thing in common: They're all owned by Iconix Brand Group (NASDAQ: ICON).

    By Brian Nichols - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: EOG, FOSL, TAP, Z

    Last week, the market witnessed its biggest three-day loss in months. Post-earnings movers have attracted investors' eyes as a place to find value. However, are any of these post-earnings movers presenting upside after earnings?

    A point of excessive expectations
    Zillow (NASDAQ: Z) has seen an incredible 200% rally in 2013, but last week, it fell 9% after missing on the bottom line and barely beating expectations on the top line more »

    By BA McKenna - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: FOSL, KORS, MOV, SWGAY.PK

    Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) shares popped 19% on August 6 after the watch and accessory maker released second-quarter earnings before the market open. If you're a "watch person," you might not be surprised that Fossil didn't give analysts the time of day as it once again beat revenue and earnings estimates.

    A brief recap of the results before we dig further:

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: FOSL, MOV, SWGAY.PK

    Macy's and Fossil Group (NASDAQ: FOSL) both reported good quarters but the takeaway is the strength in watches. One would have thought that watch wearing was on a downtrend, but not so. On Macy's Q1 conference call watches were listed as one of  their strongest categories. Fossil's earnings were great too, speaking to the powerful fashion statement that watches still make.

  • An Uncommonly Undervalued Large Cap

    By Marshall Hargrave - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: COH, FOSL, TIF

    It can be tough to find a truly undervalued stock in the large-cap space. With tons of analyst coverage and daily news updates, the market tends to get the pricing for these stocks right. But it's really exciting when the market gets it wrong, such as the case with Coach (NYSE: COH)

    Coach tumbled nealry 10% last week as the fear that competitors in the North American market are more »

  • These Specialty Retailers Have Proven Their Worth

    By Bob Ciura - July 24, 2013 | Tickers: DKS, FL, FOSL | Editor's Choice

    The resilience of the American consumer is truly a thing to marvel. With the unemployment rate still stubbornly high, the ongoing sequester, and the payroll tax hike, you’d think the consumer in the United States would be down for the count.

    Quite the contrary: in fact, although this month’s retail sales unexpectedly declined, it’s been an overall solid year for retail sales. And, when you consider that more »

    By Marshall Hargrave - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: COH, FOSL, TIF

    Although they aren't always considered as defensive as major consumer-staple stocks, such as Coca-Cola or Philip Morris, the stocks that cater to the high-end markets have proven to be resilient during tough economic times, while also excelling in a bustling economy. I've long felt that either either Tiffany (NYSE: TIF) or Coach (NYSE: COH) would be great buyout candidates.

  • The Wristwatch: Reports of My Death Are Greatly Exaggerated!

    By BA McKenna - July 8, 2013 | Tickers: FOSL, MOV, SWGAY.PK

    For well over a decade, many have been declaring the watch industry dead. Apparently, watches have not gotten the memo that they're an extinct species. I know mine haven't – they're face up and ticking – and, given the sales at Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL), it seems multitudes of their brethren also missed that memo.

    Let's dispute the "cell phones will kill the watch industry" argument. Then, we'll more »

  • Watch Out for This Company

    By Chad Henage - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: FOSL, KORS, PVH, RL

    Sometimes companies have problems just sticking to what they know. It seems that this is the case with Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL), and their different divisions that are not necessarily contributing to the company's image or profits. The truth of the matter is, Fossil is a great watch manufacturer, this division is growing faster than the rest, and the company needs to make the smart decision and reward their shareholders more »

  • Two "Buys" After Reporting Earnings on Tuesday

    By Brian Nichols - May 9, 2013 | Tickers: FSLR, FOSL

    The post-earning reaction of a stock should not dictate your decision as to whether or not to invest in a company. Sometimes my greatest plays are those that trade lower after earnings, and then sometimes it is those that pop huge after earnings. When it’s all said and done, value is what drives long-term performance, and in this piece I am looking at two stocks that trended differently but more »

  • Is it Time to Invest in this Watchmaker?

    By Leo Sun - May 9, 2013 | Tickers: FOSL, KORS, MOV

    Shares of Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) recently rallied strongly, after the Richardson, Texas-based watch and accessory retailer reported first quarter earnings that showed robust double-digit top and bottom line growth from the previous year.

    By Matthew Frankel - May 6, 2013 | Tickers: FOSL, KORS, MOV

    Fossil (NASDAQ: FOSL) has grown tremendously in the 29 years since its founding.  Even over the past decade, the company’s revenues have more than tripled from $781 million to over $3 billion expected this year.  What stood out to me when researching Fossil was the low valuation relative to the growth rate of the company, so I decided to investigate a little more and see if Fossil might be more »

    Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF) is the famous "blue box" specialty jeweler, but it's also heavily tied to the economy. However, with a rebounding economy, is now a good time to invest in the jewelry company? The other big tailwind to the stock could be a potential buyout.
