Bath & Body Works

Bath & Body Works stock (NYSE: BBWI), the largest specialty home fragrance & body care product retailer in the U.S, formerly known as L Brands before the spin-off of Victoria’s Secret (NYSE: VSCO) into a stand-alone company, has increased by 15% over the last twenty-one trading days (one month) and currently stands at around $57. It should be noted that the broader S&P500 returned a flat growth over the last month. The company posted full-year 2021 revenues of $7.8 billion, which rose a solid 22% year-over-year (y-o-y), and full-year adjusted earnings of $4.51 per share, up 45% y-o-y. However, the company guides for modest earnings declines in the first quarter, and the full-year earnings guidance for 2022 is set to come in between $4.30 and $4.70 per share. Also, given the near-term underlying macro uncertainty on the inflationary environment, the retailer’s stock looks appropriately priced at the current price.

Going by our BBWI’s Valuation, with adjusted earnings per share estimate of around $4.32 and a P/E multiple of 13.4x in fiscal 2022, this translates into a price of around $58, only 2% higher than the current market price.
