Over 80 stores to be opened this year, I wonder how many in North America. I did a count and came up with only 38 US stores at this point. Just 38, the rest in Europe and Asia.
I bet there could be a lot more opened and the plan is probably to have half of the new openings in north America. The lineups seen at stores is strong hint of this happening.
no offense but do not agree with the conspiracy theory.
It just depends upon buyers and sellers. Stock has been going up as there are more funds interested in buying. 2 years ago they were focused on the glass half empty and it is the opposite.
Sometimes buyers overwhelm the sellers and vice versa on many different time frames. Short term to very long term.
