If 99% of the FDO the analysts give FDO the thumbs up (Buy) and all the big guys ('The Street', Barclays', etc.) it as an 'Out Perform' and consumer descresionaries (sp?) are at the top of the list for where to be during (all) up coming midterm elections in history, and some analysts think Wal-Mart might just buy them out and the list goes on and on, why would anyone (in their right mind of course) sell this particular stock? (when they should be betting the farm on it based on facts).
Usually I don't get any sober responses to my posts because no one can give me a decent answer!.
NPR reported yesterday that WALMARK is considering opening a chain of stores using the FDO business model. Seems to me that FDO must be doing something right if it attracts the Goliath. I believe FDO is still small enought to run faster and smarter than WALMARK in these changing market conditions.
Yes but different ballgame. What type of customers do Starbucks cater to versus these stores? You may be right. Again I keep thinking 45 in 03 with lesser earnings and this grew 10% again top line. I don't know.
I don't know. I intended this to be a short trade for me, but now that I'm looking at it, this thing could actually gap down to $30's in 2011. Major pressure from competitors and they opened an awful lot of stores. Look at what happened to starbucks a few years back opening too many stores.
