    QUIK will hit 25 by end of quarter.$30 t

    There is no reason for quik to have the low price
    earnings ratio it has currently. This company has had
    consistent, tremendous growth for the last couple years and
    there is no end in sight. Their ROXY line for women has
    caught on BIG!! Also, in the past their profits have
    been weekened a bit by Europe's declining currency
    values. Their IR dept. said that the snowboarding
    division is doing better than expected. Lastly PACIFIC
    SUNWEAR, their largest account in the U.S. is adding 70
    NEW STORES THIS YEAR. I bought more of this one with
    full confidence we have a nice steady rise of 50%
    gains by next year. If anyone has more info please
    post, whether it be bad or good, as long as it is true.

    • i see little talk here of their snowsports
      division. it's a small part, percentage-wise (5-10
      million?) of a what, 200 million company? nonetheless, it
      must affect them seasonally. news: they just hired a
      respected designer from another snowboard company for their
      winter clothing. the board company they bought is
      producing on time and should ship on time. but the market
      is still soft in my estimation. if they stick it out
      (i feel good that they will) they will be one of the
      10 or 12 brands still standing. they are still
      trying to sell a unique boot/binding system that has not
      been proven in the marketplace.. they have shown it at
      trade shows and to dealers for 2 years, but have yet to
      ship it. they CLAIM it is the 3rd most popular in the
      world, based on orders - but of course LAST based on
      shipping/sell-through. again, this is a small part of the whole picture,
      but i wonder how long they will stick with this idea.

      • yes the snowboard market is soft but the industry
        is consolidating. snow division will not be big on
        the bottom line
        for a few years to come. the
        ARCANE boot and binding system is AWESOME. the first
        batch of ARCANE was delayed because of a problem in the
        mold. i received a new production set in april,
        to vail and had a blast. i've tried just about every
        on the market and its the BEST. management is
        focused and determined to make this division

        RE earnings; quik is shipping better than ever!! new
        large shipping facility, great products, and no
        exposure to asia = earnings suprise??
