Farfetch($NYSE:FTCH)’s reported second-quarter results were decidedly middle of the road. Revenue and earnings beat expectations, but guidance for the rest of the year was lackluster. And yet, its shares took off after the results were announced. Some analysts think this may be due to investors’ relief that the company’s results weren’t worse than expected. Others believe that the market is underestimating Farfetch’s long-term potential. Do you think this middle-of-the-road performance will affect Farfetch’s market and earnings in the long term?
“Our third quarter results demonstrate the significant progress we are making in executing our growth strategy,” said FARFETCH CEO José Neves in a statement. “We are pleased with the momentum in our business and remain focused on executing our long-term plan.” The company’s strong performance was driven by growth in all three of its major markets: the Americas, Europe, and Asia. FARFETCH also announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Stadium Goods, a leading online marketplace for Sneakers and Streetwear.
FARFETCH’s strong growth potential is reflected in its fundamentals, which are made simple to understand by the VI app. The VI Star Chart shows that FARFETCH has an intermediate health score of 4/10, indicating that it is likely to be able to safely ride out any crisis without the risk of bankruptcy.
However, the company is classified as a ‘cheetah’, a type of company that achieved high revenue or earnings growth but is considered less stable due to lower profitability. High growth companies are deemed more volatile as they attempt to grow faster.
The company is based in London and operates in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the Americas. The company posted mixed results for its first quarter as a public company.
Despite the mixed results, shares of Farfetch rose in after-hours trading on the news. Investors are betting that Farfetch will be able to grow its business and become profitable over time. The company is focused on expanding its reach to more customers and increasing its product offerings. Farfetch is also working on building out its platform to attract more luxury brands. The company recently launched a new program that allows brands to sell directly to consumers on Farfetch’s site. The stock may be a bit pricey at current levels, but investors are betting that Farfetch will be able to grow into its valuation over time.
