The good news is that the footwear company’s revenue nearly doubled compared to last year’s earnings. According to reports, 60% sales growth is estimated in the on-going quarter.

“They are so cheap relative to other retailers, particularly footwear. They’re trading at 20 times forward PE, 22 times trailing which is to say that they’re expecting great growth, and that growth is not yet priced into the stock.”

In the same interview, calling it an interesting stock, she reiterated not to “underestimate this stock.”

According to reports, the stock is expected to register a $5.80 share profit for the year, 80% higher than last year.

Crocs, Inc. stock doing well post-pandemic

Crocs stock is beyond any doubt doing well after the pandemic. Seconding this opinion is President of Blue Line Capital Bill Baruch, who said:

“The company has done everything right – everything from celebrity sponsors, they’ve done a great e-commerce pivot during the pandemic and another great earnings report here with accelerating growth. I do think that there is a place to buy here. I’m looking at the technicals.”

According to him, the best time to add this stock to your portfolio will be when the stock value falls as low as $92. Crocs, Inc.’s stock closed at $131.93 on Thursday.
