Vipshop Holdings Ltd was caught up in the massive Archegos margin call resulting in the forced unwinding of stocks for a $2 billion loss for the over-leveraged hedge fund. The particulars of the margin call aren’t important, although its unclear if more selling is imminent. However the resulting value left behind in the Archegos wake presents a buying opportunity. And among my favorites is VIPS. I’ve been following VIPS since it was trading below $10.00 per share. Currently trading with a trailing P/E of 21.81 and a forward P/E of 16.31, analysts are expecting some serious growth in the next 12 months. The company has $795m in debt and are sitting on $2.96b in cash. VIPS is still likely in oversold territory. The stock stood up fairly well amid all of the recent sell offs as a result of rising bond yields, but the price couldn’t stand up to the forced liquidation of billions in Archegos stock amid a margin call. From March 23rd to March 26th VIPS dumped from over $45 per share to $26 per share. In short, the fundamentals of VIPS today remain the same as before March 23rd, with no news, no bad PR, and no change in their finances to justify such a harsh drop. As a result there is plenty of money to be made here at her new discounted price. Particularly if company finances continue to perform as indicated below! Additionally VIPS recently announced a $500,000,000 share buyback (Which I believe is their way of saying “hey, we’re fine.”) which should narrow the float quite a bit, by roughly 3-4%, resulting in even more value per share. This is a strong buy if there ever was one but I highly recommend taking it slow as indicated by THIS STRATEGY.
Remember as a Chinese based company VIPS isn’t beholden to the same reporting requirements as US based companies. Although I’ll be the first to admit they have perhaps one of the best investor relations webpages I’ve seen! And when dealing in international investments, particularly those in China, there are a whole other set of risks you’ll need to pay attention to. Communist Party regulatory issues, international trade disputes, currency devaluation, human rights issues, tension in the South China Sea, possibilities for sanctions, and other geopolitical issues (among the unforeseen), all add an extra layer of risk to investing in Chinese companies.
