KATE: Adding Kate Spade to Investing Ideas - z ks

According to Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough:

 

I've been waiting, very patiently, for a risk management signal to line up with Brian McGough's research view on Kate Spade. 

 

KATE is finally signaling immediate-term TRADE oversold.

 

Here's Brian's latest research view:

 

Conclusion. We’re all-in on KATE at current levels. All along, we’ve pointed to a $70-$80 value. The stock is off 26% over the past month, due to sentiment concerns around 'the space' (KORS is off 27%), but our fundamental outlook has not changed one bit. The business remains very strong, we think that comps are accelerating into the double digits in 2Q, and we think that KATE’s margin guidance for this year will prove conservative. Ultimately we think that numbers this year are 15% too low – a delta that widens to 35% next year, and to 50%+ by 2018 when we think KATE has $3.00 in earnings power. Using decelerating multiples as growth accelerates and the P&L matures gets us 55% upside in a year and a 2-3-bagger by 2018. If we see the typical 'peak multiple on peak earnings' that retail knows so well, then a $100+ stock by year 3 is not out of the question.
