Brad Hathaway of Far View Capital Management presented his investment thesis on Westwing (Germany: WEW) at European Investing Summit 2021.
Westwing is a European direct-to-consumer home furnishings retailer. WEW currently has a small share of a very large TAM that is just beginning the shift from offline to online.
Due to a content-led marketing strategy, WEW enjoys large organic traffic share, significant weekly customer engagement, high revenue retention, and attractive cohort economics, which should allow the company to grow rapidly at good margins. The company is led by its co-founders who are focused on long-term value creation.
The stock is mispriced as a result of investor concerns about near-term comps while the company laps strong COVID performance as well as current global supply chain issues. However, Brad believes these near-term concerns provide the opportunity to purchase a business with the potential for significant long-term value creation. The downside should be protected by a large net cash position, sticky customer base, and material near-term cash flow.
