Gary Friedman, CEO of RH, said the following in a letter to RH shareholders.

“The emergence of RH as a luxury brand generating luxury margins has arrived years sooner than expected and we now believe we will reach 20% adjusted operating margin in fiscal 2020 with mid single digit revenue growth. If revenues grow at a higher rate in the second half, we would expect adjusted operating margins to expand beyond 20%, and now see a long term path to 25% adjusted operating margins.”

RH doesn’t provide specific numbers in its outlook. However, it does say it expects increased spending on the home to continue in the second half of 2020 and into 2021.

RH stock was up 21.2% as of Thursday afternoon.
