This is just one of many examples of how reflation is affecting the commodities market. This is a chain of consequences: commodities are more expensive, so prices of raw materials are higher, which means that michael kors canada profit margins get squeezed. CanRalph Lauren set higher prices for their products?I would say it is not a viable alternative. Retailers and manufacturers were already wondering if they still had certain pricing power and now they have to face the rise of commodities prices. The problem is that their products' prices must be adjusted, however this is not an easy task.
They need to understand which percentage of their products' final price is affected by commodities prices and then, in a meticulous way, change customers' prices so as not to affect too much their demand. Fortunately michael kors canada's problem is a bit less complicated. The reason is that this company is a big retailer, so it can negotiate with its manufacturer's and so get a bigger profit by reducing manufacturer's margin. Moreover,Ralph Lauren have different brands for different targets of the society. This is very important because it is probable that people who buy clothes in Champs will not suffer the increase in prices as will do people who buy in Purple Label.
This company depends on independent third parties that manufacture most of its products. We can find in Anchors's form 10K that over 98% of the products were produced in Asia, Europe and South America in FY12. As it is well known, this industry is subject to significant pricing pressure. In my opinion is important to remark the secular uptrend of several commodities, such as cotton, which could impactRalph Lauren margins. This chart shows clearly that cotton's price has been increasing.
michael kors outlet online stock looks quite overvalued compared to Phillips Van Heusen and Maidenform Brands. While Ralph Lauren has a much higer Return on Equity and Profit Margin than PVH and Maidenform, the stock trades at P/S an P/BV multiples that are 2 times and 4 times the ones from PVH and Maidenform. Yes, I agree that Ralph Lauren has better profitability metrics, but that does not deserve such higher valuation ratios when compared to other companies. In addition Ralph Laurens exposure to Europe is high and could be a risk if macro conditions deteriorate.
