Aritzia has demonstrated a robust growth outlook with expected annual revenue increases of 8% to 12%, reaching up to CAD 2.62 billion in fiscal 2025. Despite a recent dip in net profit from CAD 187.59 million to CAD 78.78 million, the company's strategic share buybacks and high forecasted return on equity (24.7%) suggest confidence in future profitability and shareholder value enhancement. However, current trading levels significantly below estimated fair value indicate potential undervaluation, presenting an intriguing aspect for growth-focused investors with an eye on insider-owned firms.

However, it faces challenges with insider transactions where selling outweighed buying significantly over the last quarter, hinting at potential concerns among insiders about the company's short-term prospects.
