“In the case of Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ:CROX), I had the pleasure of joining the Yet Another Value Blog podcast to discuss our investment here at length. Like most consumer brands today, the market seems concerned about the near-term outlook, and in their case, the recent HeyDude acquisition. Even so, our research suggests the terminal value of the franchise continues to be substantial and capable of generating highly attractive cash flows over a sustained period of time. That a well-managed owner of two, billion-dollar shoe brands, with market leading profitability that are both currently the number-one-selling shoe in their respective categories on Amazon, can be purchased at ~7x earnings speaks to the types of values available in the market today.”
