Here is what Greenlight Capital has to say about Capri Holdings Limited (NYSE:CPRI) in its Q3 2023 investor letter:
“In August, CPRI agreed to be sold to Tapestry for $57 per share and we promptly exited the position. Beginning with the 2022 holiday season, CPRI’s fundamentals turned increasingly negative and the company has since announced a string of earnings disappointments. When CPRI released poor fiscal year-end results in May, but insisted on maintaining overly optimistic guidance, we considered selling in frustration. With a forward bar that was set too high, we believed that further disappointments were likely. There was much hand wringing amongst investors and analysts about the earnings guidance of $6.40 per share. With the stock in the low $30s, why not lower the bar?”
