On CAPS, 94% of the 2,800 members who have rated Coach believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
[Coach] missed [earnings estimates], so that's obviously a big disappointment, but a 15% sell-off seems overdone to me. Gross margins are still over 70%! Sales in China increased by 40%. It's not ALL bad news.
If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Coach may not be your top choice.
