Boohoo.com BOO came out with Interim Results today and I thought they were superb. Of course, the Market thinks completely differently and the Shares got beat up 15% - it is my Biggest Holding so it did make me wince a little. Anyway, you can read the RNS for the Interims here:
The big stand out for me is the Growth Rate of the Revenues - up 106% over the 6 months (up 101% in Constant Currencies). Of course, many will trot out the “Revenue is Vanity, Profit is Sanity” adage and this is fair enough - but as often is the case, such simplistic phrases may not always be appropriate (bit like the “Never buy an IPO” which I think is just garbage). My take on this is that BOO is quite simply a Growth Company in the Hottest Growth Sector most of us will probably ever have the good fortune to trip over in our lifetimes - I cannot stress enough how unusual it is to have a Company that can grow at such a stellar pace - from recent memory, only Fevertree FEVR gets even remotely close (bored Readers might want to apply the kind of principles/modelling that I use in this Blog to FEVR and see what pops out at the end).
