    Just Look at Yahoo's Key Statistics

    Apparently all you cheerleaders gloss over some of the key numeric corporate metrics for PBY.

    If you don't believe my assessment of this POS stock, see if you believe Yahoo's.

    You will see that PBY lost 5 cents last quarter; yet they are paying 6.8 cents in dividend.

    You will see they have a negative profit margin.

    You will see that there operating margin is a very scant point ninty one percent. That's less than one percent. That is pathetic.

    To widen the operating margin Jef will have to raise prices or lower costs.
    Competition is fierce - no price rises here.
    Labor is cry babies - hates to work harder for their money

    Jef is boxed in by the business model of this company.
    Maybe after a few more months of quiet back door visits to the stores he will finally learn he is in a corner.

    My observation is that he may be a realist soonly and sell the company.

    Everyone of you cheerleaders will eventually respect my sage advice.

    • If they can't make money in this business climate, then they all should be fired or shot.

      Anyone not making profits are using the wrong business model.

      Some new yahoo at the helm won't cut it.

      This firm and its stock is doomed.

      A new owner would straighten the firm out.

      I see X's in the future.

    • everything I own dropped today but thats ok Im having a good year (07 so far) and had a good one in 06 so I can take a hit now & then. Anyhow if you are going to buy in do it this week. I dont think its dropping much more in the near future.

    • I don't want to get into a huge debate over this stock. I am involved elsewhere, but, I have gone so far as to spot check several stores near me. It seem that almost no bussiness is done outside of weekends. The employees seem to hate the place, costomers don't seem very happy to be there either. The service work is bottom skill level for the industry, in short, not much to cheer about.

    • Your opinion is yours, and I respect that but do not agree with it. I know that if I was backed into a corner with someone and needed to get out, Jeff Rachor would be one of my top three guys to lead me. He is tenacious, agressive, competitive and a take the high road guy. I look forward to the next year where I can come back on here and remind all of the PBY naysayers that they were wrong.

      • Hi Sonicauto!

        I don't know who martha is but the post she made is one of her better posts. No mention of Mexicans, Pissants, Wet Backs or the fictional oil changes in the parking lots. Those that doubt PBY because of the numbers are as the old cliche says, "you're looking in the rear view mirror." I took 1/2 off the table Friday to lock in a little profit. Every time I've done this in the past PBY went higher.
        I would have almost enjoyed her post if she'd left the last sentence off. "Everyone of you cheerleaders will eventually respect my sage advice." And if they do sell the company I really hope the don't sell it off in pieces.

        Hey Martha, can't we just be friends?
