Capri Holdings Shares Rise After It Lifted Fiscal 2022 Guidance; Target Price $67
Capri Holdings shares rose over 3% on Tuesday after the multinational fashion holding company lifted its fiscal 2022 prediction for profit and revenue, primarily driven by better-than-anticipated fiscal first-quarter sales trends.
The global fashion luxury group, Michael Kors parent Capri expects fiscal 2022 revenue to about $5.15 billion, up from the previous guidance of nearly $5.10 billion. As a result of the better than expected first-quarter outlook, the company now expects fiscal 2022 adjusted earnings per share to be in the range of $3.80 and $3.90 as compared to prior guidance of $3.70 to $3.80.
Following this, Capri Holdings shares rose over 3% to $56.485 on Tuesday. The stock surged more than 34% so far this year.
“As the world reopens, we are pleased to be seeing better than expected performance from all three of our iconic fashion luxury houses and are raising our outlook for the year. With greater visibility into the path of the global economic recovery, we now have even more confidence in the future and believe our three luxury houses position Capri Holdings to deliver multiple years of strong revenue and earnings growth,” said John D. Idol, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
