Zumiez Inc. (NASDAQ:ZUMZ) is an American specialty clothing retailer that operates under the names Zumiez, Blue Tomato, and Fast Times. The retail company offers apparel, footwear, and accessories worldwide. ZUMZ primarily markets clothing for sports, especially skateboarding, snowboarding, and motocross. This afternoon, ZUMZ is trading down 1.1% at $45.27.

Zumiez announced on Nov. 18 that the senior leadership team will report on its third-quarter results after the close on Thursday, Dec. 2.  Analysts on Wall Street anticipate that Zumiez will report earnings of $1.09 in the upcoming report.

Zumiez stock has increased about 21% year-over-year and is up 30% since bottoming at a 52-week low of $34.77 last December. Additionally, shares of ZUMZ have grown 23% year-to-date, but Zumiez stock is currently pulled back 17% from its all-time high of $55.10, reached in late-November. Emerging as support in recent weeks has been both the 200-day moving average and $45 level.


From a fundamental point of view, Zumiez stock is in great standing. At a market capitalization of $1.15 billion, the retail brand has an intriguing valuation. Zumiez stock trades at an attractive price-earnings ratio of 9.52 and price-sales ratio of 1.06.

Short interest has been on the rise, up 5.6% during the past two reporting periods. This accounts for more than 9% of the stock's total available float, or more than six days' worth of pent-up buying power. Meanwhile, analysts are split on the security, with 50% sporting a "hold" and the other 50% carrying a "strong buy."

In addition, the company has maintained strong and consistent bottom-line growth in recent years. Zumiez also holds a decent balance sheet with $412 million in cash and $289 million in total debt, making ZUMZ' long-term outlook very promising.
