(A Top Pick Aug 25/20, Up 18%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We set $35 as an upper objective for FL as a Top Pick and we have achieved that target. Goldman Sachs just initiated coverage on the company and set a $38 target so we will let our winner run. However, we are suggesting taking 50% of the position off the table. We also recommend trailing up to stop-loss to $26.50. Based on a measured technical move, we would now target $44 as our next upper objective.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly You might not expect a brick and mortar company like FL to be thriving during the pandemic, but we think it is poised for a sizable push higher. Recently released Q2 EPS were up over 7% from a year ago (EPS was $0.71 versus expecations of $0.57). Revenues increased 17%. The company was cautious early on during the pandemic and reduced the dividend, but we think there is good chance it will be increased before year end. We would buy this using $26 as a stop-loss and upper target of $35. Yield 2% (Analysts’ price target is $33.64)

Doesn't see momentum or upside, but capped around $50. Maybe as a trader, $40 is interesting.

(A Top Pick Oct 3/16. Up 14%.) *Short* At the end of the day, all retailers are going to suffer the same fate from the Amazon (AMZN-Q) affect. A cheap stock, but a bit of a value trap. He covered his Short on the earnings disappointment, but would look to re-Short if it bounced materially from here.

This has free cash flow growth. Against their competition, they have actually been doing quite well. You’re getting a 10-year growth rate and CapX at 50%, cash from operations of 110%, and dividend growth of 184% over the last 10 years. The free cash flow has grown at about a 3rd over that time frame. A brick-and-mortar company that knows what they are doing.

*SHORT* The challenge is that their biggest customer is Nike (NKE-N), about 70% of their business. Nike is making a very strong push direct to the consumer, a lot of it through the e-commerce program. Footlocker has got their #1 customer reducing their emphasis on mall and store sales. Their competitive response is that they’ll either have to find other suppliers, which costs money, or develop their own the e-commerce business. For them to make the necessary investments in either case, their cost of sales is far too low. This Short is for the next 2-3 years. Dividend yield of 1.63%.

This is 75% Nike distribution, but Nike has an online platform now where you can order customized running shoes online. This is a terrific Short here, and thinks it is going substantially lower.

(A Top Pick June 26/13. Up 50.71%.) Sold his holdings when it hit his target. They have been able to remodel their stores to achieve better economics. Expanded in Europe through an acquisition. Thinks there is still upside on this. He would be looking to enter again on a pullback.

Would Christmas be the catalyst to move the share price up? Had a disappointing quarter and the stock traded down to a level where he aggressively added more. Likes the athletic trends and their exposure to it. This area will continue to grow and improve with new exciting products. Mainly exposed to running and basketball, which are 2 trends that have been driving the growth of the shoe market. Well managed company that focuses not just on store growth, but on fixing up stores that don’t work and the return of capital. Generating 12%-15% returns on all the stores they are fixing. Expecting a reacceleration of earnings going forward. Trades at 12-13 times earnings. $1 billion of cash on the balance sheet and doesn’t know what to do with it.

Extremely cheap trading at less than 12X earnings. This is a $6 billion company with $1 billion of cash on hand. There are 2 things that could happen. They could actively start using the cash themselves to buy back stock and increase dividends and if they don’t do it, somebody else could come along and help them do it. Continues to look positive in the athletic product cycle of basketball and running. Yield of 2.33%. Target price of $37-$40.

Look at recent quarter and had a 36% eps increase with a half decent dividend, more than $5 in cash per share. They raised guidance. These retailers out perform in years of the Olympics, so it is a very cheap stock.
