Hudson Group CEO: Our retail business is 'completely insulated' from e-commerce
The rise of e-commerce, in particular giants like Amazon have threatened many brick-and-mortar retailers as more shoppers continue to purchase from the convenience of their home.
Hudson Group, a specialty retailer, operates nearly 1,000 stores, mostly found in airports and train stations. The company is anchored by its Hudson and Hudson News stores, which sells books, magazines, snacks, beverages, and other travel necessities.
Analysis: Hudson Group is valued at a nice price of about 8x profits. Airport terminal stores are insulated from ecommerce competition - Agreed, the growth in Hudson Group's revenue has been growing year on year since 2014 - 2015 - 2016 - 2017 .
Conclusion: Decent investment, keep an eye on this newly IPO'd company. Debt not very large either.
