Best Performing Stocks To Invest In 2019

It’s been an interesting few years for T-shirt manufacturer Delta Apparel (NYSEMKT:DLA). A huge spike in cotton prices in 2011 helped turn a near-$2 EPS in FY11 into a loss in FY12. (DLA fiscal years then ended in June; the company moved to September in 2013.) Delta managed to recover in FY13, getting EPS back over $1 – and then the company’s Soffe brand started falling apart, pushing the company back into the red in FY14. Shares fell by more than half between late 2013 and late 2014.

In response, Delta management decided to cut corporate costs to improve margins, and the acquisition of popular brand Salt Life in 2013 added a potential growth engine to complement the relatively stagnant core business. At the beginning of 2015, shares languished around $8; they’d spike to $25 by July 2016, as adjusted earnings improved substantially. After another pullback, a post-election run has moved DLA to just over $20.

Looking forward, I do think there’s more upside, with another round of significant cost savings due to hit the P&L in FY17. The risk is that those cost savings need to be balanced against a core business that still isn’t performing all that well, and a business that over the long-term hasn’t exactly been impressive in either growth or shareholder return:
