Is Staples a Secret Growth Story?
Did you know the second biggest online retailer in the world is Staples ?
Keith Goddard, Capital Advisors calls Staples the little Amazon and he thinks it has as much potential as its larger rival.
But he says Staples is a much better value.
“This is a stock that trades at 10 times earnings, 10 times free cash flow and offers a dividend yield of 2.8%.”
“Compare that to Amazon which trades at 70 times earnings and 40 times cash flow and no dividend,” he says.
And he adds that with only 40% of Staple's sales coming from online there's a lot of room to grow.
Also, Staples is every bit as fast as Amazon. "Staples can reach 95% of the North American population within one day," says Goddard.
It’s compelling, adds Fast Money trader Guy Adami. It’s worth a look.
