American Eagle Outfitters’ stock (NYSE: AEO), which sells men’s and women’s apparel and accessories under the American Eagle, Tailgate, Todd Snyder, and Aerie brands, has declined 16% over the last twenty-one trading days (one month) and currently stands at around $26. It should be noted that the broader S&P500 returned a flat growth during the same period. In Q2, the company saw a slight earnings beat and revenue miss. While the retailer’s revenue was the highest it has been in a second-quarter at $1.2 billion, and up 34.7% year-over-year (y-o-y), it still missed the analyst consensus slightly by $30 million. To break down the revenue growth, AEO’s store revenue grew by 73% y-o-y but digital revenue fell 5% during the same period. It looks like some investors might have liked to see the company perform a little better on the digital front, but it should also be noted that the company was up against a tough comparison when digital demand surged 48% y-o-y in fiscal Q2 last year. Compared to the pre-Covid quarter, the company’s store revenue increased 4% and digital revenue grew 66%.
We believe that after such strong financials the company’s stock looks undervalued and could see gains in the long term. However, the company’s stock could continue to decline further in the near term, due to the new Delta variant outbreaks likely threatening to stall the customer traffic surge it enjoyed in the early summer weeks. Specifically, there is an 80% chance of a fall for AEO stock over the next month (twenty-one trading days) based on our machine learning analysis of trends in the stock price over the last ten years.
