  • Michael Kors - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Aug 13, 2013 3:50 PM | about stocks: KORS

    The Chart of the Day is Michael Kors (NYSE:KORS). I found the stock when I sorted the New High List for frequency. The stock is up 42.39% year to date and has a Weighted Alpha of 47.90+.

    They are a global accessories, footwear and apparel company. They offer two primary collections: the Michael Kors luxury collection and the MICHAEL - Michael Kors accessible luxury collection. They also offer select footwear and outerwear through their KORS - Michael Kors accessible luxury collection. They operate their business in three segments-retail, wholesale and licensing-and have a global distribution network focused on company-operated retail stores, leading department stores, specialty stores and select licensing partners.

    Barchart technical indicators:

    • Barchart computes a technical support level at 70.99
    • Recently traded at 72.64 with a 50 day moving average of 63.73

    Fundamental factors:


    • Market Cap $14.70 billion
    • P/E 32.17
    • Revenue projected to grow 35.60% this year and another 24.40% next year
    • Earnings estimated to increase 39.60% this year, an additional 22.50% next year and continue to increase by 26.53% annually for the next 5 years
    • 20 Wall Street analysts from 18 firms issued 10 strong buy, 6 buy, 3 hold and an under perform recommendation for their clients

    The stock still seems to have steam left but make sure the price doesn't get too far ahead of its earnings. Watch the 50 day moving average to gauge sign of weakness.
