K-Swiss () was featured prominently last week on Jim Cramer's Mad Money and on the Motley Fool's website. Cramer was bearish and the author of the Fool article, Selena Maranjian, was bullish. Who will prove to be right?
An audio podcast of this article is available at:
Jim Cramer's argument is K-Swiss is carrying heavier than usual inventory and has lower than usual future orders for its product. He feels this condition will ultimately lead to lower sales and quarterly earnings.
The nuts and bolts of his argument went something like this: Domestically advanced retailer orders were down 32% last quarter and the company's inventory was up 21%. He went on to criticize the shoemaker for failing to cut prices to lower inventory. The thought may be if they embrace lower prices it will weaken the prestige of the brand.
Selena Maranjian writing for the Motley Fool in his January 3 article argues K-Swiss is a value because of its low 14 price to earnings ratio, a solid 21% earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization, and an 18% return on assets.
K-Swiss may be a fine value for the long term. However, the numbers Jim Cramer is talking about will be reflected in the company's earning report due out on February 5th; giving us solid reason to suspect a short term decline.
Jim Cramer's pessimism may have already been priced in the stock; it dipped nearly 1 percent after his proclamation. [iressa]
Let's assume Jim Cramer is right and the stock is going to take a short-term downturn. How can we turn this into a profit using options? A good trade to consider is the bear-put debit spread. PowerOptions' easy to use tools make it a snap to find a viable trade.
