I hope you've held this for the last 7 months. It is moving up nicely throughout 2015.
I made like $400 on Ultimate Stock Alerts last nasdaq play. (search em) I like how they only alert nyse and nasdaq companies instead of that junk on the OTC.
My take is that large shorts are theme investing by betting that the American mall is dead. I don't think they're factoring in how well Guess is doing on the net, and in fashion redesign. Short squeeze is on the horizon with GES. I like ANF too.
I haven't looked at this stock in a while, and now I see the short ratio (of float) is 38%. What's the deal? It doesn't seem like the condition is that bad. P/S is only 0.7. The P/E is a little high, but not crazy. I'm usually the one doing the shorting, but I was thinking of buying this long. I must be missing something.
Analyst at Maxim Group rates GES as a buy with target of $24. He is emphasizing the undervaluation of the licensing business, which accounts for the bulk of the operating income - seems like a reasonable call.
Drivel? Because the fashion in your opinion is tacky? Sophomoric rant imo. I suggest you listen to Zacks. Strong buy.
