Looking at it… interesting…
Nice timing. I just posted a short trading thesis for SKX on the premium boards: http://discussion.fool.com/4056/skx-trade-for-next-6-18-months-3…
I’m also going to post it on the PB: Investing Strategies because it’s a stock that Tom E. follows closely.
I figured since its growth rate has dipped to 15-20% (which is great for its comparables - Nike and UA growing at 6% but have 2-3x higher multiples than SKX), it is not a hyper-growth stock for this board anymore. But happy to talk more about SKX on those other boards.
Either way, I think it’s a great risk/reward at these prices because its mix of: strong fundamentals, cyclically low valuation, and short-term FUD (q2 orders are being pushed to q3). The trifecta for value investing! And thus, I’ve built a sizeable position from $27.50-$29, in the 20% trading portion of my account (those trades typically target a 3-12 month time horizon and involve a mix of stock and call options).
Important to note, in my opinion, SKX is not a candidate to 3-4x like FOSL. Or something I plan to hold extremely long-term. This is a 30-50% target for me within 6-12 months.
Also, I’ve been wrong many times, and will be wrong many more times, so please do your own research.
Who is Tom E.?
