Callaway Analyst: Topgolf Worth More Than Previously Thought

"In addition to record sales and operating profit, we made great progress executing our corporate strategy of transforming Callaway into a premium golf equipment and active lifestyle company," said Chip Brewer, CEO of Callaway Golf. "The acquisition of Jack Wolfskin in early 2019 was an important part of that strategy and our TravisMathew business continues to grow at double digit rates. All the while, we remained steadfast in our focus on the golf equipment business which grew over 7%, outpacing the overall golf market and further strengthening our brand positions."

Callaway Golf's stock was trading down 7.3% to $19.10 per share in Monday's after-hours session. The stock has a 52-week high of $22.33 and a 52-week low of $14.50.
