KORS shares have taken a hit over the past three months, down 10% vs. S&P’s 3% advance. Investors’ sentiment of a beat-and-raise quarter has shifted to the potential of an earnings miss and soft guidance, which pushed the valuation down to 17x next years earnings compared with its peer average of 20x.Michael Kors bangles I see the pullback before the earnings as a good set up for a positive surprise especially when KORS has beaten consensus by on average $0.16 over the past four quarters despite undergoing an investment cycle. That said, I will be a buyer heading into the quarter as I see KORS’s focus on accessories and handbags allows the company to withstand the structural shift towards cheaper alternative brands (ie. H&M and ZARA) and its investment in ecommerce and international to drive the next leg of revenue and earnings growth.
