KOHL'S; victim of COVID-19 or just cheap

Long
NYSE:KSS   Kohl's Corporation
5/7 factors of KOHL'S corporation fell under what Graham would name as a value stock
- BBB rating as of may 2019
- Current ratio >1,5 with 1,67
- P/E ratio --> 3,6
- P/ BV ---> 0,45 (Attention here because Assets such as apperal is likely to be subject to lose value as time passes)
- Dividends --> as of FY 2019 the DPS was 2,86--> giving a yield of 18% with the current price
2/7 factors do not qualify
- EPS do not show a significant growth over the last five years
- total debt to current assets is higher than 1,1--> 1,33

Despite the risks of a substantial loss in EPS this year due to closure of malls and shops, and the inevitable devaluation of the companies current assets (and also tangible such as PPE ), the company does still have a tangible book value double of its current price, which is highly important after COVID-19. It's also likely that people come back to shops after COvid-19 and that earnings reach a level similar to the previous years.

Therefore:
Entry price: 14,25
holding period: 3-4 years
Stop profit: 28,50
Stop loss: 10,00

Trade active: 01/04/2020 --> bought at $ 13,02
