Although the company recently reported a loss, the results exceeded expectations. Wells Fargo analysts maintained their overweight equity rating and their C $ 54 price target in an August memo that discusses “Canada Goose’s evolution to a lifestyle brand.”
Canada Goose shares have fallen 16% in the past three months, but are up 21.3% for the year to date. The S&P 500 SPX benchmark,
has gained 14.7% for 2021 so far.
“From a broader perspective, Canada Goose’s consumer-driven model has proven to be particularly resilient last year during the fall / winter months, as product seasonality kicked in despite the disruption caused by store closings, ”Wells Fargo wrote, noting the impact COVID-19 has had on the brand.
“When you look at Canada Goose across the spectrum of other outerwear brands (both mid-range and luxury), it looks like the brand still has a room for growth as it begins to push channels, categories and ancillary geographic areas. “
