Ralph Lauren Expects 32% Market Cap Return Over Next 3 Years

Summary We analysed RL's new plan target. FX volatility will play a crucial role. We are lowering our price target mainly due to a derating multiple within the sector. Ralph Lauren raised the bar over the next three-year plan. But the buy rating is confirmed. Two days ago, Ralph Lauren Corporation (NYSE:RL) presented its updated strategic growth plan thanks to a live investor day event in New York (Conf. call recap in the link). Before analyzing the plan implication, it is important that our readers are well acquainted with the story up to now: 08/03/2022 - Mare Evidence Lab initiation of coverage: The Polo Horse Starts To Gallop. In our first analysis, our buy case recap was based on: 1) a confident view of the luxury sector with a positive pricing delta versus cost inflation, 2) excellent numbers and a solid FCF generation, 3) new platforms to engage a young clientele and to enhance the company's profitability, 4) new launches initiatives such as 'The Lauren Look'; 10/08/2022 - Ralph Lauren: Comments On Q1 Analysis with a positive performance partially offset by currency development. Ralph Lauren's stock price performance was not in line with our expectations; however, we believe that the just-released plan is aligned with our forecasted assumptions. Starting with the CEO's words, he explained that "since RL's last investor day in 2018, we have transformed our business - building a strong foundation with multiple engines of growth that are already showing momentum". He also said that Ralph Lauren's "strategies are expected to drive sustainable long-term growth and value creation - fuelled by operating discipline and a strong balance sheet - as we reinforce our leading position as a luxury lifestyle company." This is music to our ears! We know that RL's price decline was more due to the subdued market environment, however, we hope this plan might raise earnings estimates.
