Overall, Skechers stock appears to be a promising recovery play right now. SKX’s revenues and net income are still down significantly compared to its pre-pandemic levels. However, had previously reported multiple years of consistent revenue and net income growth, suggesting that the company’s fundamentals are solid. Furthermore, SKX’s forward price-earnings ratio is estimated to come in at 21.41, which is a massive improvement compared to Skechers stock's current price-earnings ratio of 50.52.

Now actually looks like a nice time to buy premium on the security, too. This is per the stock's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 32%, which ranks in the 4th annual percentile, hinting at low volatility expectations at the moment.
