If so, you came to the right place. In this stock guide, we will share with you 7 reasons to buy and 4 reasons to sell VFC stock. You’ll get a perspective on what the bulls and the bears say about it.

The analysis below may be also helpful to you if you have any of the following questions about VFC stock:

  • Is VFC a buy or a sell?
  • Should I sell or hold VFC stock today?
  • Is VFC a good buy / investment?
  • What are VFC analyst opinions, recommendations and ratings?

Let’s start with the bull case. Here are the reasons to buy VFC stock:

1. The outdoor and action sports coalition represents more than half of VF revenue and is a high-margin, quickly growing category with significant room for innovation. At 16.3% in 2016 (pre-LSG exit), EBIT margins were about 230 basis points higher than the consolidated VF EBIT margin.

2. International expansion and direct-to-consumer growth opportunities indicate that most existing brands have further market expansion opportunities.

3. Mix shifts resulting from the execution of strategic goals should lead to annual margin expansion of about 30-60 basis points in constant currency.

4. VFC quarterly revenue growth was 5.50%, higher than the industry and sector average revenue growth (4.83% and 4.40%, respectively). See VFC revenue growth chart.

5. VFC profitability is improving. The YoY profit margin change was 3.09percentage points. See VFC profitability chart.

6. VFC forward dividend yield is 2.16%, higher than the industry (0.48%) and sector (0.51%) forward dividend yields. See VFC forward dividend chart.

7. VFC average analyst rating is Buy. See VFC analyst rating chart.

Now that you understand the bull case, let’s look at the reasons to sell VFC stock (i.e., the bear case):

1. The firm's businesses, including sportswear, carry a high degree of fashion risk and are discretionary. These could weigh on both top-line and margin performance.

2. Significant international exposure could provide near-term margin pressure, given current foreign exchange rates.

3. Further acquisitions may be difficult to find or to integrate. Acquisition valuations may be at a premium and take longer to close than expected.

4. VFC Price/Book ratio is 7.56, and it’s high compared to its industry peers’ P/B ratios. See VFC forward Price/Book ratio chart.

Now let's look at the key statistics for VFC:
