Wrapping up Q1 earnings, we look at the numbers and key takeaways for the apparel, accessories and luxury goods stocks, including Guess (NYSE:GES) and its peers.

Within apparel and accessories, not only do styles change more frequently today than decades past as fads travel through social media and the internet but consumers are also shifting the way they buy their goods, favoring omnichannel and e-commerce experiences. Some apparel, accessories, and luxury goods companies have made concerted efforts to adapt while those who are slower to move may fall behind.

The 17 apparel, accessories and luxury goods stocks we track reported a mixed Q1; on average, revenues beat analyst consensus estimates by 0.5%. while next quarter's revenue guidance was 2.2% below consensus. Stocks, especially growth stocks where cash flows further in the future are more important to the story, had a good end of 2023. But the beginning of 2024 has seen more volatile stock performance due to mixed inflation data, and apparel, accessories and luxury goods stocks have held roughly steady amidst all this, with share prices up 4.1% on average since the previous earnings results.

Guess reported revenues of $591.9 million, up 3.9% year on year, topping analysts' expectations by 3%. It was a mixed quarter for the company, with an impressive beat of analysts' earnings estimates but a miss of analysts' operating margin estimates.

Carlos Alberini, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are very pleased with our first quarter results, which exceeded our expectations for revenues and earnings per share. We delivered revenue growth of 4% in US dollars and 7% in constant currency, driven by a remarkable performance of our Licensing and Americas wholesale businesses and strong results in Europe and Asia. Revenues in our Americas retail business finished flat for the quarter, as we continued to experience softness in certain of our businesses in the region due to slower customer traffic. I believe our strong results this quarter once again highlight the power of our diversified business model and the strength of our brand and our global distribution.”
