I recently submitted an article on three stocks that I consider to be undervalued here: 3 Stock Considerations

Before that article was posted, I made a buy of each of those company that can be seen at my website (which can be found on my profile page).

After that article was published one of the stock went down 3.5%. I saw this an opportunity to add more shares to that stock.

I added more shares to my portfolio with the purchase of Williams-Sonoma, Inc. (NYSE:WSM).

25 Shares @ $47.14 on 7/7/2017

My up to date portfolio can be found at my website as well.


Williams-Sonoma, Inc, is a specialty retailer for home goods. This company has retail locations in the USA, Canada, Puerto Rico, Australia and the United Kingdom. It operates through two segments: e-commerce and retail. WSM has numerous brand that it merchandises in. For example, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, West Elm, and Rejuvenation.


WSM has had a revenue growth of $3.945 billion in 2008 to $5.084 billion Jan 2017. That is a CAGR of 2.86%. That is not really impressive but just wait.

As you see in this chart. From the total revenue of $5.1 billion, 52% came from e-commerce. I think this is great considering a lot of people now are buying their home goods online.

This chart shows you how well WSM has been doing in the online space. They are ranked 21 in sales. I think that is pretty amazing considering all the online stores there are.
