Stephen Dodson of Bretton Fund presented his in-depth investment thesis on Carter’s (US: CRI) at Best Ideas 2019.

Thesis Summary:

Carter’s is the largest children’s apparel maker in the U.S. Founded 150+ years ago, the company has consistently and steadily grown, establishing a dominant position in baby clothes, counting 80% of new families as customers. Recently hurt by the closings of Toys R Us and Bon-Ton, the brand remains strong and customers will find other ways to buy Carter’s goods.

Trading at ~12x earnings (the lowest multiple since 2010), Stephen believes this consistent grower is a bargain.
