Just last week, CAPS All-Star Staka offered a balanced take on the Inter Parfums opportunity:

Positive:-"Confusion over the Burberry transaction's impact on EPS leaves IPAR shares undervalued" (Bishop Research, I agree)-Solid cash generator, solid growth

Negative:-Based on sustainable earnings the P/E is somewhat high and they still have to growth into it. There is a risk of them failing to achieve this.
