Just last month, SapphireSeas tapped Skechers as a particularly timely pick: "Major consumer brand with multiple successful product lines suffering from failure of 'Toner Sneakers' fad. Temporary setback and overselling sets this stock up for a nice comeback."
In fact, Skechers currently sports a cheapish forward P/E of 10.4. That represents a clear discount to other footwear stocks such as Crocs (15.3), Deckers Outdoor
CAPS member taylor4u elaborates on the bargain opportunity:
Skechers has some problems it needs to work through but there is still demand for the product. The company seems to be in good financial standing and is at a compelling valuation. The CEO is 70 years old so maybe some new management can shake things up a bit.
