FLASHBACK | Long Nautilus $NLS - 8 10 2020 9 03 01 PM


Nautilus (NLS) will report earnings on Monday. We expected the results to be good. Though with the stock hitting new highs this week, so does the market.  The only concern we have is whether the company’s supply chain has been running well enough to satisfy sales relative to expectations. 

We continue to see out of stocks for core NLS products across retail. Sales and earnings expectations should continue to march higher in the coming quarters as we see demand remaining elevated for likely at least another 6 months. As the supply catches up with the demand, fundamentals should beat expectations.


No, I don't like SMALL CAP (IWM) as a Factor Exposure... but my Independent Research team has had plenty of great small cap long ideas that have seen demand #accelerate during the US Jobs Depression...

Long Nautilus Group (NLS) is one of those ideas by Retail analysts Brian McGough & Jeremy McLean. It's down over -4% into the close here on decelerating volume within a Bullish @Hedgeye TREND signal.

Here's a brief recap of the idea from the boys:

  • NLS Nautilus Inc. (Owner of Nautilus, Bowflex, and Schwinn Fitness) makes sense for a trade/trend long play.  The stock recently saw a notable bullish phase transition on accelerating volume within Keith’s quantitative model.
  • The stock move came after the company preannounced sales for 1Q at +11%, the first time sales grew since 3Q18.
  • The incremental demand makes a lot of sense.  The narrative in the market has been all focused on Peloton, but every maker of home fitness equipment is benefitting as people shop for solutions to a closed gym
