$BGRY $NLCP $FIGS Earnings: What I'm Looking For
Earnings season is coming to a close for me. I may have a few more of these posts but they'll become a bit more spread apart (I'll probably do one for $DOCS, $RSKD, $SNOW, $PATH, $OKTA, and $CRWD in the next couple weeks before they report. Follow if you want to see them and comment about what I'm overlooking or getting wrong!
Berkshire Grey, Inc. ($BGRY) - Reporting earnings this morning (5/12)
This is a loooong term play on the robotics automation market. I think there's very little that could make me sell this position before it hits the 5-year mark in my portfolio. Not that I think it'll be a market-beater by then. I just don't think the company's execution can be properly evaluated before then. For Berkshire Grey, I am looking at three things:
  • Revenue growth - Obvious
  • Balance sheet - Don't be on the verge of bankruptcy
  • Backlog - The indicator of whether or not companies are buying into the product
Current position:
Total cost basis: 73rd highest in my portfolio
Time since first buy: 1.09 years
Number of purchases since initial position: 2
Annualized return: (84.4%)
Annualized $SPY return: (9.6%)
Annualized $QQQ return: (19.7)
NewLake Capital Partners, Inc. ($NLCP) - Reporting earnings this afternoon (5/12)
Is this a mini-$IIPR? They are certainly tracking that way, at least early on.
Here's what I'm looking for:
  • It'd be great if management began breaking out Property Expenses in their Operating Expense breakdown (like IIPR does).
  • Can revenue keep growing >100%?
  • Property count and rentable square feet needs to keep growing.
  • Stay at or really close to 100% leased.
Current position:
Total cost basis: 37th highest in my portfolio
Time since first buy: 0.55 years
Number of purchases since initial position: 1
Annualized return: (55.8%)
Annualized $SPY return: (22.1%)
Annualized $QQQ return: (34.5%)
FIGS, Inc. ($FIGS) - Reporting earnings this afternoon (5/12)
I love what this brand is doing. My wife is in the medical industry and anecdotally confirmed how loves FIGS clothes are.
Here's what I'm looking for:
  • Management is guiding for 32% full year revenue growth, which would be a deceleration. Getting a good jump in Q1 will hopefully be an indicator of a full year beat.
  • Gotta stay FCF positive.
  • Can international revenue keep growing at triple digits?
  • I know the demand for scrubs will continue to be there. What about non-scrubs revenue? It accounted for 13.5% of 2021 revenue (an all-time high) and grew at 61% in 2021. Can that continue?
  • I really wish management would updated investors CAC.
  • I also wish management would update investors on Net Revenue per Active Customer and Average Order Value on a quarterly basis instead of annually.
Current position:
Total cost basis: 23rd highest in my portfolio
Time since first buy: 0.93 years
Number of purchases since initial position: 3
Annualized return: (63.1%)
Annualized $SPY return: (10.4%)
Annualized $QQQ return: (17.8%)
