Destination Maternity: 40% U.S. Market Share, 3% Dividend Yield And Zero Debt

Destination Maternity Corporation (NASDAQ:DEST) is the world's largest designer and retailer of maternity apparel. In the U.S. the company has an approximately 40% market share. The analysis of this stock reveals that thanks to its very favorable valuation, an attractive 3% dividend yield, and especially due to the company's number one position in its segment of apparel and a potential for further North American and international expansion, Destination Maternity Corporation stock is undervalued and investors can expect double-digit total annual returns in the next five years and an increasing dividend yield. At the same time, the non-discretionary nature of the maternity clothing business provides an excellent margin of safety under the current level of sales.
