Acushnet Holdings: Limited Upside Due To Minimal Growth Drivers

Acushnet Holdings' Titleist brands are among the most valuable in the golf equipment industry. Significant increases in beginner golfers and total rounds played over the past two years bode well for GOLF and other golf equipment providers. GOLF has greater exposure to consumables such as golf balls and golf gloves, giving the company some financial stability in a seasonal industry for many of their geographical markets. Golf equipment market is slowly expanding at a CAGR rate of 2.2% through 2025, which limits top-line growth for GOLF in the future. GOLF is fairly-valued according to relative metrics and slightly undervalued under absolute metrics assuming analyst estimates for free cash flow in FY22 and FY23.
