As Home Furnishing Demand Slows, Wayfair Shares Require a Wider Margin of Safety

Jaime M. Katz, CFA Senior Equity Analyst

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Jaime M. Katz, CFA |

Wayfair should be able to continue to take share in the fragmented home goods market, which it believes represents a more than $800 billion global opportunity between North America and Europe. The firm’s differentiation comes by way of product breadth and its logistics network, which permits faster delivery of both small and large parcels than most of its peers. Faster delivery is a function of fewer touch points, reducing damage and improving Wayfair’s brand equity with each positive delivery experience. However, we think peers will continue to attempt faster delivery, spurring rising competition. Targeting a wide consumer base with a customer age 20-64 years old (200 million domestic households) with income of $25,000-$250,000 also means Wayfair is competing with mass-market retailers, specialty retail, and low-cost providers, making it harder to stay top of mind. This, along with no switching costs, underlies our no-moat rating.
