Turnaround Letter
Out-of-Favor Stocks with Real Value
Thank you for subscribing to the Cabot Turnaround Letter. We hope you enjoy reading the March 2023 issue.

While large restaurant companies cruised through the pandemic, smaller companies struggled. Some, however, are now undertaking promising turnarounds. We highlight four new ideas and provide updates on two previously discussed small-cap restaurants.

For struggling companies, free cash flow is their lifeblood. By using free cash flow yield, we can identify undervalued companies with plenty of cash flow that provides a margin of safety. We discuss three interesting stocks.

Our feature recommendation this month is a high free cash flow yield situation. Retailer Kohl’s (KSS) is viewed by investors as a broken company left behind by time, trends and technology, with unsettled leadership, further pressured by bloated inventory, a possible recession, and rising labor and goods costs. We see a company with a history of stable revenues and cash flows, that now has a highly capable operator at the helm, whose shares have a free cash flow yield of 13%. The generous dividend pays out close to half of this cash flow, producing a 6.2% dividend yield.
This week, we comment on the full earnings report from Volkswagen, which wraps up this earnings season. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) is an off-cycle company and reports on March 28.
