Ralph Lauren’s Brand and Merchandising Investments Support Its Margins and Narrow Moat

David Swartz Senior Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| David Swartz |

In our view, narrow-moat Ralph Lauren's restructuring over the past few years puts it on solid footing as it navigates macroeconomic challenges. In response to poor inventory control and heavy discounting in years past, Ralph Lauren has closed more than 75 stores, reduced exposure to U.S. department store and off-price channels, and cut product lead times. These and other changes have resulted in strong gross margin increases. Although sales have declined in North America from peak levels, we believe the restructuring, including new merchandise and better pricing for core products, has positioned Ralph Lauren for low-single-digit sales growth and mid-60s gross margins. Further, we forecast advertising support as a percentage of sales in the mid-single digits in the long term and anticipate its direct-to-consumer sales will rise to 74% of sales in fiscal 2033 from 63% in fiscal 2023, thereby reducing the brand’s dependence on U.S. physical retail and providing better control over pricing and positioning. We view an increasing direct-to-consumer business as essential as customer visitation is declining in many retail stores and malls.
