V.F. Corp - Investor Day 2022
If you own $VFC or it's on your watchlist, don't forget to take a look at their last investor presentations. A lot of great pieces of info: new guidance and FY2027 target 🎯

I link it here
post media
Abbott $ABT is a dividend aristocrat in the healthcare space. When they chose to spin off Abbvie $ABBV in 2013, the investment community considered the company a dividend aristocrat.

VF Corp $VFC spun off its denim business Kontoor Brands $KTB in 2019, I rarely hear people talk about the business like it was also a dividend aristocrat when it went public. Because of the dividend cuts during the pandemic, I can understand why any talk about the business being a dividend aristocrat was short-lived.

Overall, I do think that Kontoor Brands is a business worth paying attention to in the apparel space. $LEVI is a major denim brand and Kontoor Brands could see a similar level of success as Levi Strauss Co.
Always love looking at these Joel Greenblatt-style "unloved businesses" left behind after spinoffs. Forced selling in a lot of cases creates incredible buying opportunities.

Insiders are buying the dip on VF Corp $VFC
According to OpenInsider, insiders are warming up to the dip on VF Corp. With a dividend yield near 5% and having a dividend aristocrat status, I wouldn't be surprised if more people were choosing to capitalize on the deal that's being presented to them.

Meanwhile, there has been little insider buying on $KTB, the denim clothing spin-off of VF Corp.
$WMT earnings highlights
Looking at both Walmart and Sam's Club merchandise highlights, I gain a better gauge on which retail niches are doing well and which aren't.

Here are Walmart's quarterly merchandise highlights:

And here are Sam's Club's merchandise highlights:

From looking at the two brands, here are a few highlights we can gather:
  • grocery sales grew by low double digits
  • health and wellness products grew by single digits (people prefer to buy smaller containers of those products than in bulk)
  • technology, office and entertainment product sales continue to see declining sales
  • back to school spending has provided some growth for retailers in areas like merchandise and apparel

Overall, this earnings report makes me slightly bullish on $NKE $VFC $FL $DKS $JNJ $ABT while making me bearish on $WSM $BBY $ETD $RH $W $YETI $MLKN.

Being the bellwether of the retail sector, $WMT tells us what consumers are shopping for and what they aren't in the market for.

When you say you are bearish/bullish on these adjacent companies, is that more of a short to medium term outlook?

Portfolio Update πŸ“Š MARCH 2022
Hello fellow investors πŸ‘‹
Here is my portfolio update for March 2022.


⚠️ download it cause online view is not very nice

As you can see, I am suffering some losses in portfolio value, which is quite normal considering last month's situation. However, I am not worried, dividends are flowing in constantly and are keep increasing, so my income is intact.

Recently I increased my position in the following stocks:

πŸ”Έ $KHC
πŸ”Έ $VZ
πŸ”Έ $LMT
πŸ”Έ $VFC
πŸ”Έ $SJM

Unfortunately, on my portfolio page here on CS, such trades are not shown due to the faulty integration with IBKR. 😀

If you have any questions, let me know in the comments. πŸ‘‡
Have a nice day 😊

Dividend Stock #5 πŸ₯Ύ $VFC
Hello fellow investors
this is post #5 out of #50, where I introduce you to all the dividend stocks in my portfolio

Today VF Corporation $VFC is in the spotlight πŸ”¦

VF stands for Vanity Fair, and I expect many of you know approximately what we are talking about. It is a kind of company that is not well-known by name, but there is a strong possibility that one or more people in your family is now dressing with one of the brands they own.

By the way, it is not Vanity Fair the Magazine πŸ˜‚

We are talking about:

The company is a $23B corporation managing production and distribution worldwide. Unfortunately, the stock price is still trading very low after the Covid crash of 2020, and I believe this is not justified.

Revenues are flat from around eight years, with no major increase/decrease, but we need to appreciate the strong increase of +10% in the gross profit, sign that the business model is solid and working well.

⚠️
To be honest, $VFC spun off $KTB (Wrangler + Lee brands) in May 2019, and that represented around $2.5B revenue, so it is not properly correct to say that $VFC revenues were flat, but anyway...

During the last period, the company also experienced strong online sales growth, which partially offset the stores' closure due to covid.

Important for me is also the dividend status: $VFC is a Dividend King πŸ‘‘, increasing the dividend continuously from 48 years

At the moment, $VFC represents less than 1% of my dividend portfolio, but I plan to increase my position by about +25%.

Upcoming Earnings Calendar (Jan 24-28th) - BIG week ahead!
Hey guys! Here's the upcoming earnings calendar! Definitely a very busy week ahead. Here's what I'll be looking at:

  • $MSFT - Can Azure keep its growth rate? Will a slowdown cause a sell-off similar to the one $NFLX had?
  • $TSLA - Post earnings reaction. This is one of the few high-growth stocks that has shown relative strength. Let's see if this changes post ER.
  • $LOGI - Is demand for gaming peripherals still strong? May be an early indicator of videogaming strength.
  • $AAPL - It's always interesting to hear what Apple is doing.
  • $V - Data on consumer spending.
  • $CVX - General comments on the energy market.

If you'd like an easier way to track earnings dates, you can automatically sync your portfolio's earning dates to your personal calendar with just a couple of clicks here.

Featured earnings for the week of Oct 18
Earnings season (finally) getting into full gear!

So many interesting companies announcing earnings next week. Here are is the Fincredible Featured list. View all here.

Here are some I own / or particularly interested in

$JNJ - very interested to see results in the medical devices segment. Specifically are their signs of closing the gap with $ISRG with their new platform and are elective surgeries coming back

$ISRG - flip side of the $JNJ narrative. I love it when competitors announce close to each other :)

$NFLX - international subscriber numbers

$T - update on discovery spin-off, dividend and 5G capex

$XM - $MNTV is my top 3 holding based on thesis they are making inroads in enterprise market, which $XM dominates. Big enough market for both but want some context.

A few companies like $PG on inflation numbers, but I suspect @awallis will be kinda enough to provide a MacroTalk update on this topic again
