    from 2007 to 2011

    stockholders equity (deficit)
    in $K from 403,200 to (1,347,099)

    total debt
    in $K from 1,935,618 to 3,354,317

    from 4,056 to 4,832

    net sales per store
    in $K from $1,525 to $1,675

    think about it, per store sales have only increased by $150,000 over a 5 year period aprox. $30K per year or close to 2%.

    Now lets look at the future. Over the next 12 months they need $ 1,038,291 to keep the lights on, that does not include neither new store capital requirements nor share repurchases.

    Best case cash flow will be a but higher than 2011 of $ 1,291,538 on average they buy 6M shares per year,at current share price that would mean $1.9B, that ain't happening.

    Some trivia, please name 5 publicly traded retailers with negative shareholder value, negative working capital and above 100% accounts payable to inventory. Maybe if these techniques were so good more corporations would follow them?

    Enjoy the ride.
