  • The company flexed mix towards athleisure wear, now accounting for ~50% of products as opposed to ~35% in 2019 in a bet on continued "casualization".
  • I believe this has immensely paid off in the past quarter.
  • Expectations into the print may be pessimistic owing to a number of recent factors/news.
  • However, it's more difficult to evaluate DSW's future in the long term.

I'm a current undergraduate at NYU Stern. My focus is on international equities, both long and short ideas. I tend to utilize a top-down approach, expanding from economic and consumer trends to create general trade ideas, and then seeking value and growth picks with strong capital structure, potential/increasing cash flows, and competitive advantages. I then model the company’s statements and forecast future revenue, EPS, and cash flows over the next few years, with the goal of determining if it is currently trading at discount to its intrinsic value using valuation methods that include DCF, P/S, PEG, or EV/EBITDA. In my research process and articles, I address risks, red flags, drivers/catalysts, revenue generation, costs, and basic technical analysis–among other factors.
