VF Corporation

VF Corp’s stock (NYSE: VFC), an apparel and footwear manufacturer that owns brands such as Vans, Timberland, and The North Face, has declined by about 14% over the last five trading days (one week) and currently stands at around $26. The company posted a surprise dividend cut which led to this dip in the company’s stock. VFC declared a $0.30/share quarterly dividend, down 41% from the prior dividend of $0.51. However, the company cruised past earnings expectations in the recent Q3 2023 (ended December 2022). For the fiscal third quarter, the company notched $1.12, down 17% year-over-year (y-o-y), in adjusted earnings per share while revenue fell 3.5% y-o-y to $3.5 billion. Wall Street analysts were anticipating EPS of $0.99 on $3.49 billion revenue. A strong performance of the North Face brand offset the downbeat performance of the Vans brand, particularly in East Asia.
