Brunswick Corporation (NYSE:BC) is an American company that develops, manufactures, and markets a wide variety of recreational boating products. On June 30, two of Brunswick Corporation’s boating brands, Boston Whaler and Sea Ray, announced the launch of new “MyWhaler” and “Sea Ray+” apps. The two apps, which were officially announced during Brunswick’s Next Wave Investor Day back in May, are designed to improve the boat ownership experience with features like boat wallet, trip recorder, weather, checklists, remote monitoring, and FAQs.

Brunswick stock is up 56% year-over-year and 32% in 2021. Despite a 3.1% pullback in June, the shares found support at their 160-day moving average, a trendline not breached on a closing basis since May 2020. Brunswick stock also has a forward dividend of $1.34 and a dividend yield of 1.35%.

Checking the pulse at the earnings confessional, Brunswick has outdone itself over the past year. BC has outperformed earnings expectations on all four of its most recently released earnings reports. However, this resulted in three of the last four post-earnings moves to the negative, including a 4.4% drop last July. 

Fundamentally, Brunswick Corporation has struggled to maintain consistent top and bottom-line growth, but the stock offers an interesting opportunity at its current valuation. BC currently trades at a decent price-earnings ratio of 16.71, which is well below both the Nasdaq’s and the Dow Jones’ average price-earnings ratios. Additionally, the company has increased its trailing 12-month revenues by 10.7% and its trailing 12-month net income is up by 27% since fiscal 2020. However, it is important to point out that Brunswick did experience an 89% decline in net income and a 20% decrease in revenues for fiscal 2019. Overall, it looks like Brunswick stock offers very little growth potential in exchange for a high level of risk.
