Anyone with any investing experience wouldn't short Chicos at this price. This company has EXCELLENT fundamentals and a track record to prove it. The catalyst for Chicos to move up is it's current VALUATION! Don't obsess over fear of a recession or any other silly macro economic picture type of thinking. History has shown that it does not pay to try and predict the general economic future but it does pay to buy undervalued stocks. You fear mongers should take a look at the Motley Fool caps rating on Chicos and reassess your thinking.
You obviously don't know what fear is. Fear is about the future whether you be long or short-Fear underlies the opinion of what you believe the movement to be(up or down). Start with facts if you want people to listen.
You would be better off throwing darts at the financial pages than in taking your investment cues from the Motley FOOL.
CHS "excellent fundamentals and track record" are all in the distant past, but TMF still touts them as if they are current. Once a high flyer, CHS is now a cellar dweller, plumbing new depths every day (pun intended and directed at the head plumber - Scotty Edmonds).
No "fear of a recession or any other silly macro economic picture type of thinking" is needed to realize that this ship is sinking.
Actually, the first poster has a better handle on it - if not for this stock, then for the market and investing in general.
The Motley Fool "Hidden Gems" is now and has been for two years now out-performing every single other stock newsletter out there. If they say that CHS is undervalued, I would tend to believe them - if for no other reason than their unreasonable take on the market. It's why they call themselves "Fools"; because most of the self-proclaimed Wall Street gurus can't even beat the S&P 500 index...
