What Ever Happened to Adidas Shirts and Corduroy Pants? (TPR)

Posted on January 27, 2021

Coming at you early this week due to the added holiness of Tu B’Shvat.

Tapestry Inc. (NYSE:TPR) is the name of a company that sells overpriced accessories to people who still care about those sorts of things.

And as you can imagine, during the Batflu lockdown the company’s earnings took a hit.

Stores were shuttered, and only after folks returned to the streets did the company’s shares begin once again to climb.

That said, it’s our contention that the climb was overdone and is now complete.  As we’ll demonstrate below, there’s nothing left to squeeze from this old wallet.

Consider –

  • The company posts NO P/E, a function of negative earnings at present,
  • Has a Price to Book ratio of 3.59 (egad!),
  • Pays no dividend,
  • Reported an earnings decline of 207.70% for the year,
  • A 29.30% decline for the last five years,
  • And carries too much debt (debt/equity is 0.91)

The company’s shares were up 16% in 2020, but as the charts below show, it all transpired in the fourth quarter, when a speculative mania combined with a better than expected holiday season to create a demonic wind that swept through across the land, dehydrated the brains of the masses and lifted valuations to extremes we haven’t seen since the occipital breakdown of 2001.

She’s Overbought!

Take a look now at the daily chart since the Batflu bottom –

Maximum gain on the affair is $6.70.

Breakeven arrives at $31.80 (current price is $32.78).

Many happy returns,

Matt McAbby
