Crocs Inc. (NASDAQ: CROX) shares increased more than 12% in trade on July 5 following a recommendation from Wall Street analysts. The CROX share corrected to $52.33 in trading on July 6.
Loop Capital analysts cut their target price for Crocs Inc. (CROX) shares in April by nearly half, from $150 to $80. Simultaneously, they formed a recommendation to “hold” shares. However, experts’ opinions shifted a few months later. They now propose purchasing CROX stock, expecting that the firm will make a significant profit this year. The goal price has been established at $75.
It is worth noting that CROX shares have been on a downward trend for some months. Quotes have dropped by about 60% since the beginning of the year. Investors were undoubtedly dissatisfied with the company’s rate of sales and earnings growth in the previous two quarters when it failed to meet Wall Street’s predictions.
Furthermore, Wall Street discounted the $2.5 billion acquisition of HEYDUDE in February 2022. Crocs Inc. (CROX) intended to considerably extend the distribution of the newly acquired brand’s items through its powerful marketing and strong wholesale ties.
According to management projections, HEYDUDE brand sales will total $750-$800 million in 2022, indicating that this brand has the potential to approach $1 billion in the near future.
Crocs Inc. (CROX) will most likely be unable to totally shield themselves from present macroeconomic concerns. Rising pricing and fewer discretionary costs may result in lower sales. Furthermore, the price of materials used to make the company’s well-known shoes may climb.
Crocs Inc. (CROX) is supported by a strong brand and a high level of consumer loyalty. Because the company’s shoes are frequently worn at work, it is doubtful that buyers will simply quit such a purchase, especially in times of inflation.
