Tapestry (NYSE: TPR), a luxury goods retailer of handbags, shoes, and accessories under the Coach, Kate Spade, and Stuart Weitzman brands, is scheduled to report its fiscal second-quarter results on Thursday, February 10. We expect the apparel retailer stock to trade higher post the fiscal Q2 release with revenues and earnings beating market expectations. It is worth mentioning that revenue trends accelerated compared to pre-pandemic levels, driven by continued growth in China as well as the Digital segment in the fiscal first quarter of 2022. These two key drivers represent a long-term growth opportunity going forward and we expect the company to navigate well based on these trends in the upcoming Q2, as well. After just a single quarter in this fiscal year, Tapestry raised its guidance – it increased its sales target from $6.4 billion to $6.6 billion, which would be a record number for the company. On the bottom line, the company increased its projected range for earnings per share from $3.30 to $3.35 up to a range of $3.45 to $3.50.
Our forecast indicates that Tapestry’s valuation is around $47 a share, which is 22% higher than the current market price of $39. Look at our interactive dashboard analysis on Tapestry’s Earnings Preview: What To Expect in Fiscal Q2? for more details.
