As the countdown continues to the next quarterly report filing deadline (Friday January 29), Stockhead recaps the best performers – today’s best was fashion retailer Mosaic Brands (ASX:MOZ).


Mosaic Brands (ASX:MOZ)

While this company’s update was a half yearly rather than a quarterly, it was a significant gainer this morning.

12 months ago, the company (which was until 2019 known as Noni B) reported a drop in sales over the 2019 Christmas period, for which it blamed the bushfires.

COVID-19 was a further hit, forcing the company to ponder shutting hundreds of stores, but it has announced a significant turnaround.

Mosaic first half earnings are expected to be between $40 million and $45 million and Black Friday sales doubled compared to last year.

The company told shareholders it was well positioned for the second half and also that it expected “a large number of our frontline team, vaccinated (against COVID-19) by the middle of the year”.

Mosaic shares rose over 33 per cent today but are still in negative territory in 12-month terms.

It also hit 5 million users, up 35 per cent from the prior corresponding period.
