My opinion is that same store sales comparisons should look better in the coming year because they were poor last year. The reason they were poor last year is that the store had very, very strong double digit same store sales growth the year before that (2 years back). It made it very difficult to repeat such strength last year since a company can only out pace the growth in macro clothing demand for so long before the company saturates the market. In any case the price of clothing also fell across the board last year. Total unit sales were unlikely down at all at BKE but rather the company had to charge lower prices. Manufacturers prices were also down. The company is not falling apart or anything drastic like that and maybe some institution buyers are finding that BKE may be a good value pick long-term. That is my opinion for the upswing in the stock so far this year.
