Over the past 3 days Fossil Inc. sky-rocketed from $8.26 to $17.07 per share, outperforming the market by more than 100%. The reasonable question that most probably buzzes your mind now – what did happen to that stock and why didn’t I buy it at $8? The reason is that the company released the results for Q4 2017 with the following highlights:

  • Adjusted EPS are $0.64 on revenue of $921 million – estimates are beat up by some
  • Transition to wearables technology and achieving their sales of $300 million being 20% of the total company’s watch sales

In the context of the above, one can see that the company chases up the wearables market and aim to compete with the trend setters such as Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Fitbit (NYSE: FIT). However, as per the Yahoo Finance, 7 out of 11 analysts took the hold position with regards to Fossil’s stock, some of them note that there are fundamental changes in the way the company started to realize its strategic movement towards wearables technology which is on the rise now and have significant potential for further development and market expansion. According to Forbes, the industry analyst forecasts 125.5 million wearable devices to be shipped to customers just this year and the comparable figure for 2021 should hit 240.1 million.

In line with the above the market and shareholders were addressed by the company’s management team with projected increase in wearables sales, although net sales are expected to decline in the range of 6-14%, and expected gross profit margin of 51-53% in 2018. Pursuing the company’s strategic plan for restructuring its business it also expects to incur some $50 million of related charges and arrive at EBITDA figures of $150-200 million in 2018.
