Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research

EPS of 74c beat estimates of 71c; revenue of $869M beat estimates by 3%. GIL actually lowered guidance but the stock rose anyway as the degree of adjustment was less than expected. RBC raised its target. EPS is now expected at the low end of the prior $2.55 to $2.65 range. Margins dipped, but this is a case of 'investors were expecting worse' and the stock has staged a very nice rally this week.

Trevor Rose’s Insights - Trevor’s most-liked answers from 5i Research.

 GIL has performed well amid a challenging macro outlook, and is now trading at a 10.5x forward P/E. In the 4Q, GIL’s revenue declined 8% to $720M, missing estimates of $761M and EPS of $0.65 slightly missing estimates of $0.68. 
GIL’s management expects margin pressure in the first part of 2023 but expects to deliver strong margin performance for the rest of the year. 
The company has executed well on its long-term growth strategy by taking advantage of the vertically integrated models as a low-cost manufacturer to expand production to low-cost labour areas such as Bangladesh. 
It does so while continuing to expand its margins and returns on net assets (RONA). 
Overall, the company has been executing well on its growth plans, has been increasing dividends, and plans on repurchasing shares over the next few years.

High quality. Manufacturing is in lower-cost geographies, which results in higher operating profit margins and higher ROEs. Strong balance sheet, well managed. Very good time to add. Nice dividend yield.

He's passed on this after reviewing it many times. They depend on retail sales in clothes, and face a lot of competition. They grew very quickly but have been plateauing. It craters on high cotton prices, though. It's a trade at best.

This is a staple – apparel. It is one of the largest basic apparel manufacturers in the world now. Their manufacturing foot print is in the Caribbean. COVID-19 is ravaging these countries right now. The governments' ability there to lead is not what it is here in Canada. Probably it is going to be higher in a year's time, but you might get a chance to pick it up lower.

He thought the long term sustainably and growth of the dividend as solid. He was surprised when they eliminated the dividend as quickly as they did. It makes him wonder about the company's commitment to the dividend going forward. The stock price now reflects that, adding to the volatility of the stock. He does not own it. He prefers owing real assets, like utilities and infrastructure. For a young investor with time, it is worth a look.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick May 17/19, Down 63%) Its earnings estimates have been slashed. Most recent quarterly sales were down 23% on the year and earnings were down 82%. There is still a relatively high PE ratio. Unfortunately sales are being impacted by COVID-19.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Mar 29/19, Down 28%) Their shares got hurt recently after a poor guidance update. They have been through this before. He thinks they will do fine. He would see this as a long term hold.

The drop last fall was a shock. They've done a lot of research on it, and are positive on it. This quarter's earnings are OK, increased the dividend. Likes it.

She's never been interested in this; not a strong growth name and it's in a competitive space. There are better growth names in secular growth industries. Doesn't know why it pulled back lately.
