For the past two years you have been right about the trend. During the past month or so, however, the trend has been up. Management has been taking action to cut costs, eliminate unprofitable stores, etc. but hasn't yet followed your advice to eliminate half the stores. I believe management is moving in the right direction, doing what they can in a challenging macro-economy.I'm betting the short-term trend up will continue. Should get more answers/direction when earnings are announced on February 29.
