Wolverine World Wide’s stock (NYSE: WWW), a designer, manufacturer, and marketer of casual shoes, rugged outdoor, and work footwear, has declined around 8% over the last twenty-one trading days (one month) and currently stands at near $33. It should be noted that the broader S&P500 returned a flat growth during the same period. We expect the company’s stock to continue to decline going forward, based on a stellar revenue and earnings beat in Q2 and a raised full-year guidance. Wolverine World Wide’s operations have recovered to pretty much pre-pandemic levels. The company saw direct-to-consumer revenue grow 69% from the 2019 level. Also, its owned e-commerce revenue was up 91% and owned store revenues grew 19% from the two years ago level. This improved operational performance inspired the company to make a sizable deal with Sweaty Betty, a global fitness and lifestyle brand for women. The acquisition is expected to provide more exposure in the EMEA region and a larger direct-to-consumer and e-commerce angle as well.

Looking ahead, Wolverine World Wide guides for full-year revenue to range between $2.34 billion to $2.40 billion, compared to a prior forecast of $2.24 billion to $2.30 billion. The company also sees EPS to range between $2.20 to $2.30 compared to $1.95 to $2.10 previous estimates. We believe that the company’s stock looks undervalued after this strong performance and could see gains in the near term.
