Urban Outfitters: McConville says the stock’s current price, around $37, solely values the company on its Anthropologie and Free People segments. The flagship brand comes for free. The Urban Outfitters brand is going through a turnaround, transitioning back to its traditional, slightly older and higher spending target clientele after a stint of targeting the teen demographic through lower pricing. The turnaround has already borne fruit as the namesake store had a good holiday quarter. The company’s May quarter was less stylish, as Anthropologie’s sales growth was lower than expected. McConville says the result was the result of a mistimed drop of the spring catalog and some missed trends that are easily addressable, and the 9% drop since has created a nice entry point.
