VF Corp (VFC) Received its Third Buy in a Row

After Susquehanna and Robert W. Baird gave VF Corp (NYSE: VFC) a Buy rating last month, the company received another Buy, this time from Guggenheim. Analyst Robert Drbul maintained a Buy rating on VF Corp yesterday and set a price target of $105. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $89.65.

Drbul noted:

“We believe VFC has appropriately managed demand and believe the $5bn revenue target is achievable. We remain BUY-rated on shares as we continue to favor VFC’s strong portfolio of brands, headlined by Vans. With Vans on pace to surpass the 2021 target it introduced in FY19, VFC provided an update to the L-T plans and laid out its goal to grow $5bn business by FY23. At ~$3bn in revenue, Vans has grown at an ~17% CAGR since VFC’s acquisition in 2004 (from ~$360mn). More recently, growth has accelerated into the ~30-40% range over the past 3 quarters, driven by broad-based strength, globally. While ambitious, we believe the $5bn target is achievable as Vans adequately manages consumer demand. Notably, Vans is adding new customers, particularly women, and expanding internationally.”
