    • Have you really done any research? ODP and OMX are LOSING market share to SPLS. Based on your post, you are also thinking SPLS is only in the US and not in other countries. I have never seen or heard from a sales rep. for Target or Costco. You also don't know SPLS has huge dotcom sales...second to AMZN. Research my friend...research. Never mind the upgrades today from the anals? Expand? What was Corp Ex?

    • Yes, I was off a little bit. None is perfect. But, it will close in the 23's today. The competition is very strong. SPLS will lose market shares. It cannot continue on cutting cost. It needs to expand and grow revenues. However, it is very tough due to economic condition and strong competition from Office Depot, OfficeMax, Target, most importantly COSTCO. Many small business owners turn to Costco. I have seen it happening everyday. SPLS will likely warn in the next in a few months. It will be in the teens when it happens.

    • Well it looks like you were off by 40 cents on the 24.04 close. I agree it will come back down after profit taking though, but not by a whole lot.

      Also, you can't base your assumptions on retail alone. The delivery service is holding up well and traffic was up at most stores maybe just not yours. For example, I went to my local store on black friday for a PC and the line was easily 50 people long at 4am. Should I start buying at any price now? Of course not. My point is that retail doesn't even make up 50% of the Staples business anymore, so you need to look at all the indicators not just what you saw at black friday or the last time you visited the store.

      BTW, got my PC online from them anyways... that's one hell of a deal... get the door buster without walking in the door and get it delivered for free!

      Anyways, if you really think it's going to $18 then you should be shorting like mad. Otherwise you better start posting as much doom and gloom as possible as we all know the SP500 performs based on Yahoo Message Board posts. If you post enough doubt and worry you just might bring the stock down single handedly. Good luck with that.

    • Yes, this increase is temporary. The report is not that great. Profit taking in the next few days. I see $18 by March next year before the next earning report.

    • Good call
