Top Canadian Stocks To Buy Right Now

Unlike many low-priced stocks that surge on news, Naked Brands Group (NASDAQ:NAKD) has a large business. For the 12 months ending January 2018, Naked Brands racked up ~$90 million in revenues.

Unfortunately, like all too many low-priced stocks, NAKD stock is likely to slump as the initial hype fades. In Wednesday’s trading, traders dumped NAKD stock, and losses could continue.

That’s because while Naked Brands brings in plenty of revenues, its costs are out of control. The company has consistently lost major sums of money over the years, and if anything, the rate of losses has been trending in the wrong direction. While NAKD stock isn’t a typical penny play, its business model still leaves much to be desired.

A Pattern of Losses

Naked Brands recently came into its present being via a merger. Naked, itself, got its big break in 2009. It appeared on Dragon’s Den, a Canadian equivalent to Shark Tank where businesses pitch themselves to venture capitalist investors. As a result of that publicity, Naked’s business took off. The company brought in more prominent management and moved to New York.
