Why This Misunderstood Stock Is Discounted Today


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor Austin Smith discusses topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin talks about a stock that got bruised and bloodied by Mr. Market the other day, but he thinks the beating wasn't justified. Despite weakened guidance and an earnings miss, Austin thinks now is actually a great time to buy. True Religion has a very lululemon-esque stock appeal to it. The company has no debt, commands a premium price, and benefits from a move towards more sales from their bricks-and-mortar locations. What's even better, they trade at a discount to many other retailers with less brand strength.

True Religion looks appealing today, but will they be able to resist the inevitable trend that's altering the face of retail?
