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

ASO is cheap at 7.7x forward earnings, however, results have been lagging year-to-date down 22%  driven by a weak first quarter. ASO is also flat over the prior twelve months. The company has displayed a declining sales trend over the last few years. There are some marketing initiatives that the company is engaged in that could help drive sales in the latter half of the year, but the first quarter was quite weak. Debt has come down nicely over the last few years and while not low, it appears to be more managable now. We are not overly intrigued by ASO, but it is cheap and does pay a small dividend which gives it some appeal. In an upward sales cycle it could do better but the recent weakness shows otherwise.

Is very cheap, but also since the spring. The stock has done little very little. You can stwart buying it here, but not whole hog, because the stock is getting clubbed.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We again reiterate ASO, a US regional sports and outdoor activity retailer, as a TOP PICK. Recently reported earnings beat analyst expectations, supporting a ROE of 40% and management has now raised earnings guidance above analyst forecasts. Its E-commerce sales are just getting going as sales were up 30% over pre-pandemic levels. It trades at under 8x earnings, compared to peers at 12x. We recommend trailing up the stop-loss (from $40) to $44, looking to achieve $64.00 -- upside potential over 20%. Yield 0.5% (Analysts’ price target is $64.36)
