Recent News & Updates
Columbia Sportswear: Valuation Improving After The Drop
Columbia Sportswear released its Q3 results in October, reporting a 15% increase in revenue year-over-year, but a double-digit decline on a two-year basis. This was impacted by supply chain headwinds which led to delayed receipts, and freight costs could impact margins next year despite planned price increases. The good news is that Columbia expected robust sales growth next year, and a combination of margin expansion and a lower share count is contributing to steady annual EPS growth. While I don't see enough of a margin of safety just yet, I would view pullbacks below $84.50 as low-risk buying opportunities.

Columbia Sportswear: Undervalued As Pandemic Habits Turn Mainstream
Columbia Sportswear has been growing its market share with new and diverse product offerings around the globe. As they do so, they are also increasing their gross margins which allows for a higher cash generating environment resulting in better shareholder value. As a result, I am bullish on the company's 2-3 year prospects and believe they are undervalued by as much as 20% for the coming 18 months.
