    Tiffany margins????

    Well, their operating margin is almost 18% and their ROE is over 17%. Any business that's making 18 cents on every dollar of revenue is a darn good business.

    • You get that 18% figure from Yahoo and think it is good! I don't think so. You ignore forward looking projections which I am referring to - 6 mos to 1 year into 2011 - on the next conference call you think TIF is going to report that margins will be improving - not gonna happen. This stock is gonna drop - how many points is the question. Your comments about jewelry as an investment, especially diamonds, is a joke.

    • PPS.

      Their customer base will accept higher prices. We're not talking the Dollar General crowd. So....that translates into HIGHER revenue for TIF. Also, this customer base is sophisticated enough to realize that in an INFLATIONARY economy gold/silver jewelry, and diamonds are an excellent hedge against inflation, and a GREAT INVESTMENT. On top of that, you can get brownie points by letting the wife (or husband) wear. versus just storing all those heavy gold/silver bars away in a safe.
