Guess is a contemporary apparel company that sits in the mid-range of the clothing market. In its most recent quarterly report, the company revealed $398.54 million in revenue, down from $683.22 million in the previous year. Earnings were -$0.01 per share, beating the analyst prediction of -$0.57 per share. The Coronavirus has limited the company’s revenue potential, but it expects a strong bounceback in the holiday season and in 2021.

This company offers a dividend with a yield of 3.25% today. If earnings continue to decline, the dividend could decrease, but a strong global economic recovery in 2021 could prevent this.

There’s speculation in this pick. Guess? remains one of the most well-known mid-tier clothing brands and it is well-positioned to resume normal performance as the Coronavirus Pandemic is brought under control. Its low price and the (currently) stable dividend make it an option to consider in October.
