Here you can find the previous analysis of Gerry Weber

contrarian values of P/E, P/B, ROE as well as dividend for Gerry Weber

The P/E of Gerry Weber is excellent with 13.5 (which comes from a dramatic share price drop due to changes forecast for 2015) and the P/B is great with 2.1. Still we end up slightly too high for Graham to show an interest in this company. The earnings to sales are a but low with only 8% and the ROE is ok with 15.7%. The book to debt ratio is excellent with 2.0.
In the last five years they have had a yearly revenue growth rate of 6.5% which is excellent and it gives us a motivated P/E of 17 to 21 which means that Gerry Weber is today undervalued on the market.
They pay a good dividend in the size of 3.6% (but it has not improved in € for the last three years) and it represents 48% of the earnings which is ok. Due to the forecast change I doubt there will be an increase in dividend next year... maybe even the opposite.

Conclusion: Graham says no to Gerry Weber and I am a bit more interested as I always get when there are dramatic changes happening. The P/E, P/B, ROE and dividend are all fully ok and I could  invest in Gerry Weber.

If this analysis is outdated then you can request a new one.
