Why trade? Levi Strauss stock?

In its latest earnings report for the second quarter of 2022, Levi's released a series of strong results that surprised investors in the current economic climate.

Consolidated revenue rose 15% to $1.47 billion, beating analyst estimates of $1.43 billion. This resulted in a 26% increase in earnings per share from last year's quarter. Direct-to-consumer sales led to a 35% year-over-year increase in sales.

The results surprised investors as recession fears have raised concerns for consumer stocks such as Levi Strauss. However, the company was impacted by supply chain constraints that resulted in lost sales of approximately $60 million.

Data from 203 13F hedge fund reports filed with the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) show that the hedge fund has increased its position in the company in recent quarters.

The San Francisco-based company also announced plans to increase its quarterly dividend payout to 12 cents per share from 10 cents per share. The management team also provides a positive direction for 2022 with revenue growth of 11% to 13%.
