JD.com delivered strong first-quarter results with a strong bottom-line beat, but indicated lower second-quarter growth, lower than expected, due to cowardly lockdowns and logistical disruptions. It is important to note that the quarter close to Covid remains the biggest variable for the JD’s growth outlook.
1) JD has continued market share with strong brand awareness and deeper brand / merchant partnerships, thanks to its supply-chain and logistical capabilities; And
2) JD has an elastic profit outlook, despite a [likely] Short-term revenue risks. The recent optimization of its operations and investments enables a weaker and more efficient organization. This potentially promises higher earnings-growth power once the normalized revenue growth returns. JD should be a relatively outperformer in China’s e-commerce space.

Following the strong March-Quarterly reporting and outlook for analog devices, we have restored our outperform rating and লক্ষ্য 210 price target. The company echoed the comments we heard from its peers a month ago, it points out [computer chip] Demand is strong and supply is tight, despite strong market sentiment. Looking ahead, the extra capacity that comes online in the second half of this year should benefit revenue and allow the company to catch an incomplete backlog, as long as there is demand. In addition, we think that one of the biggest things that distinguishes analog devices from their peers is the ability to turn the foundry power up or down and change the power during a recession – in contrast.

We are unanimously lowering our estimates because of the epidemics in Asia, especially China, and because of the geopolitics in Europe, as well as the overall softness in North America, especially in the United States. The rise of the dollar against most foreign currencies. In addition, we believe that negative sales leverage and broad-based cost inflation will have a disproportionate impact due to Tupperware’s global manufacturing footprint, which requires a larger fixed-cost component than the other companies we follow.
However, we believe that the company is still in the very early stages of its efforts to properly monetize the Tupperware brand, and in the current assessment, even on our unanimous assumptions, patient investors may look back on this period. Very interesting entry point in stock. Price target: $ 12.50.
