I've been in play this whole time. Board got a little nuts. Had myself a stalker who couldn't argue based on the great performance of the stocks I picked, so I felt it was time to take a break from the crazies. I loved this stock at 80 18 months ago, I loved the stock at 28, I love the stock today. I love the stock forever.
This company is very much like Coach, hence my reference to it. Coach became a publicly traded company in 2000. Look at its chart, look at its increase in revenues, and cash. That is Deckers. Deckers is printing cash. Consumers love the product and Deckers keeps coming out with new products. Not just boots or slippers, but now high fashion sandals. Whether or not these ultimately are amazing performers in 10 years from now obviously remains to be seen, but the market prices in the future well ahead of time and punishes for disappointment. Deckers should be much higher than a 17 p/e just for the cash it is producing. With the potentail tremewndous growth in earnings due to top line growth as well as sheepskin costs saving over the next 24 months, stock should be at a 30-35 p/e minimum.
