Been adding to my position in the 14-14.5 range. It's become pretty sizable. Hard not to be nervous with nothing supporting the stock price but hope. Invested in the company hoping for a LULU -like niche and valuation. I hope it's happening for real.
gotta believe that the early snow storms throughout the country (not just in ski land) will encourage retailers to purchase more inventory...after a number of sub-optimal winters, it looks like this one is starting off pretty sweetly
Just think what would have happened if Kanders could / would have done the Under Armour deal back in 2004 or whatever it was (assuming those rumors were correct). Maybe missing out on that deal is what made BDE take a hard look at growing their apparel line.
Seems like most every person wants to be branded these days, whether it's wearing American Eagle, Hollister, UA, Nike, A&F, Ralph Lauren, Coach, etc. If BDE can make headway in this area, look out.
earnings great but old news maybe someone taking a venture stake of possible merger activity. Probably solid news after close.
In any case, I'm pretty optimistic about earnings, assuming the apparel line is being well received. We have had a couple of crummy reports. I don't think it'll take much to keep us on an upward trajectory. I think a genuine opportunity is here to make a lot of $$$. I'll keep buying every time the chart says so. Pray for snow!
