Wow - some numbers and outlook, not sure why the stock got such whacking %^&*()!
The VP SC is replacement, not new position. Looks they moved the previous VP SC guy (J. Vernacchio) into the global product VP role, which was vacated recently by the guy (P. Hamilton) they hired from NIKE a while back who drove the Flashdry, ABS vest, Summit Series etc. stories mentioned in the analyst call transcript. They're stating strong consumer response. That, the increase mktg spend, and the cold weather's coming and the dividend increase and Romney/Ryan wearing their stuff on TV should have them back to over $170 in no time?!?
