"I want to talk about DUFRY (DUFN-CH) or (DFRYF-USA). This is the mother of all reopening plays. 

What is DUFRY? In a nutshell, the primary business is Duty Free in airports. 90% of the business is tied to airports and airport sales. If you take a 10,000 foot view, find me any other brick-and-mortar retailer where the customer is literally land-locked in the store for an hour, there's zero Amazon competition, and the company is a globally diversified monopolist in every market that it operates.. the simple answer is you can't find one. 

It doesn't exist.

Anyone investing in DUFRY today has to look through a lot of turmoil in the current numbers, given it's a travel-oriented company.

But here's a number of underappreciated angles.

  • It only has roughly 10% of the global Duty Free market.
  • We're seeing an accelerating trend where private operators are taking over airports, and trying to upscale the shopping experience.
  • This is a company that's going the route of luxury and evolving into a boutique model.
  • There are a number of key strategic partners to grow their luxury portfolio, who are investing and will be adding a ton of value for DUFRY.

This is very much a story of the entire Duty Free experience changing. This is a multi-year, multibagger."
