  • This Apparel Company Is Crushing Estimates

    By Daniel James - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: KORS, PVH, RL

    Times of economic distress are usually not good for fashion retailers, especially luxury brands, as consumers are left with considerably less money to spend on these types of goods. However, with the economic recovery gaining traction, some of these firms are showing pretty solid numbers. Michael Kors (NYSE: KORS) has a strong history of beating estimates, and recently came out with another excellent quarterly report. While this strong growth comes more »

    By Mark Yagalla - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: PVH, RL, VFC

    We're all familiar with Calvin Klein underwear and Tommy Hilfiger shirts, but most aren't aware that both are part of PVH (NYSE: PVH), a company with a market cap of over $10 billion. In the past year, the stock has been a great performer, handily beating the S&P 500 with a rise of over 45% in the past year. The company also owns iconic brands Van Heusen more »

  • A "Fat" Brand To Help You Live Large

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - August 18, 2013 | Tickers: ICON, PVH, DIS

    This company's global brand portfolio is ranked second only to Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS). Its operating margin is fat at 60.51% and its PEG is low at .63. The market values it at a 2014 earnings multiple of 13.63. Yet you almost never see it on the CNBC scrawl although you or your kids are probably wearing or using one of its brands. It's a more »

  • This Company Owns the World’s Most Well-Known Brands

    By Mark Lin - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: ICON, PVH, RL

    Investors have been often advised to avoid large and prominent listed companies as their investment choices, as most of these stocks would have already been priced to perfection. There are exceptions, such as cases where the company’s products or brands have widespread recognition, but the listed entity behind them is relatively unknown.

    By Vanina Egea - August 2, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, PVH, WHR

    The consumer electronics industry has gone a long way from the introduction of the vacuum tube. Since the 1980`s, the industry has given us the notebook, cellphone, HD Tv, among others. Today, electronic devices have closed the gap between imagination and reality, making The Jetsons a bad dream. But, have consumer electronics giants Phillips Royal (NYSE: PVH), Whirpool (NYSE: WHR), and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) found their way up after more »

  • Should You Invest in One of These Apparel Companies?

    By Ryan Palmer - July 23, 2013 | Tickers: ANF, GIII, PVH

    Fashion is one of the most difficult industries to predict the future of. That means that it is also one of the hardest industries to invest successfully in. What's hip and hot one year almost never is the next, and staying on top of the fashion world is very challenging. That being said, there are still some apparel companies out there that are solid profit-generating businesses; these are the more »

  • Are These Clothiers 'The Emperor's New Clothes?'

    By Marshall Hargrave - July 19, 2013 | Tickers: PVH, RL, VFC

    The Emperor's New Clothes is a nearly two century old fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson about an emperor who pays good money for new "magic" clothes, clothes that can supposedly only be seen by wise people. Everyone pretends to see the clothes, as to not seem stupid, with the moral of the story being that sometimes many people are too afraid to criticize something because everyone else thinks more »

  • This Apparel Giant Looks Quite Expensive Now

    By Anh HOANG - July 12, 2013 | Tickers: PVH, RL, VFC

    I am often worried about companies that have experienced a huge amount of insider sales, as it could indicate that insiders might not be bullish about their own companies anymore. Recently, Emanuel Chirico, Chairman and CEO of PVH Corp (NYSE: PVH), sold 47,296 shares of the company, with the total transaction worth nearly $5.7 million. In addition, COO and CFO, Michael Shaffer, also divested 19,000 shares on more »

  • A Review of the Luxury Apparel Industry

    By Vanina Egea - July 10, 2013 | Tickers: KORS, PVH, RL

    Some analysts view the luxury goods sector as being recession-proof. This has been the case for most of the years after the 2008 financial meltdown. But are these companies really armored against the current economic situation? The decline in China’s sales has been affecting most of the companies on the industry as sales in other regions such as Europe or US have been sluggish. It's important to pick more »

    The US economy seems to be back on track. Jobs are being created faster than a year ago and GDP growth, according to IMF estimates, is expected to be as high as 3% in 2014.

  • 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 »

    To clarify, the Focus List isn't simply stocks that Credit Suisse has a "buy" rating on. Much like Goldman Sachs' Conviction Buy List, the Focus List is a select small number of more »

    By Erin McBride - June 3, 2013 | Tickers: KORS, PERY, PVH, RL

    “In fashion, one day you are in, the next, you are out.” – Heidi Klum

    Luxury brands and high-end fashion are strong earners this season, and some brands and businesses are stronger than others. The fashion bottom line isn't dictated by name recognition or a popularity contest, or about which company makes the coolest commercials. Fashion is a brutal business.

    So who was in this past season? Are any designers more »
