Argosy Investors made the following comment about Burlington Stores, Inc. (NYSE:BURL) in its Q3 2023 investor letter:

"Burlington Stores, Inc. (NYSE:BURL) participates in the off-price retail category and competes against well-known players such as TJ Maxx and Ross Stores. BURL recently suffered from an inventory overhang that dented margins and is also suffering from a slowdown in same store sales. With that said, the company has capacity to double its stores, double its margins to levels consistent with peers, and expand same-store sales growth. On normalized margins, which the company last achieved in fiscal 2019, BURL is trading at ~10x earnings, with potential to grow top-line low double digits, increase bottom line mid-teens, and increase EPS high teens over time."
