No-Moat Kohl’s CEO Choice Brings Much-Needed Peace With Macellum; Shares Very Undervalued

David Swartz Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| David Swartz |

In two pieces of separate but related news, Kohl’s announced that interim CEO Tom Kingsbury has assumed the position permanently and that it has signed a standstill agreement with 5%-holder Macellum Capital. We had previously speculated that Macellum might wage a third proxy battle this year (which would have been very costly and potentially damaging), but it is satisfied with Kingsbury’s appointment as Kohl’s CEO. Indeed, Kingsbury originally joined Kohl’s board in 2021 on Macellum’s recommendation. This is not to say that Kohl’s chose him merely to mollify its antagonist shareholder, we believe he is well-qualified, with extensive retail experience that includes more than a decade as narrow-moat Burlington’s CEO. Thus, in our view, he was both a logical and a practical choice.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
