Tapestry's Improving Trends Despite Challenges Impress This Analyst

  • Telsey Advisory Group analyst Dana Telsey reiterated an Outperform rating on the shares of Tapestry Inc TPR and raised the price target from $52 to $54.
  • TPR’s beat and raise are impressive, especially in light of the COVID disruptions in China for the quarter and following Capri Holdings Limited's CPRI significantly disappointing results yesterday, said the analyst.
  • In addition, the beat was nicely operational, with upside coming from gross margin while sales were only slightly below consensus (and in line with guidance) despite COVID pressures in China through the quarter, added the analyst.

  • Since December, traffic trends have improved meaningfully in China, particularly around the important Lunar New Year period, with store traffic improving sequentially and performance in line YoY quarter-to-date.
  • The analyst adds that domestic travel is improving, notably in Macau and Hainan, and there remains further opportunity as international travel recovers.
