    Red Flag - for intellectually impaired

    Inventory levels are indeed a major red flag.

    The pumpers on this board either are stupid or purposely tried to deceive the readers.

    Here are the facts:

    7/05 7/06

    Inventory 74M 124M

    Sales 153M 216M

    Inventory has ballooned nearly 70%!!!! while revenues have increased 40% ---- inventory nearly double the growth rate of sales.

    The pumper tried to trick everyone by comparing revenues to the year ago period while comparing inventory levels to six months ago ---- WRONG PUMPER!!

    Inventory problems = Lower margins, lower stock price

    MORE INVENTOY JUST ADDED TO THE 70% DISCOUNT LIST -- 83 PAGES

    • I stand corrected. Here are your accurate numbers:7/05 7/06

      Inventory 74M 124M

      Sales 153M 216M

      Inventory has ballooned nearly 70%!!!! while revenues have increased 40% ---- inventory nearly double the growth rate of sales.
      Redoing the math it looks like 67.5% inventory growth versus 41.2% revenue growth. That would be closer to 64% higher than revenue growth but you and you alone speak the truth:"Inventory has ballooned nearly 70%!!!! while revenues have increased 40% ---- inventory nearly double the growth rate of sales." Maybe a little exaggeration? Of course we should ignore the explanation in the conference call and heed only your advice. But thanks for the most cohesive short arguement we've seen on the board. Definitely something anyone long the stock should keep an eye on. Congratulations on your past short sale success, but I think you might be waiting 90 days for the proof of whether you're right or wrong. CWTR will most likely meander until the next CC with a little pre-CC run up. If I wanted to be short I'd sell in the 2-3 days before. Best of luck from a pumpper.

      I receive Coldwater Creek catalogs frequently along with dozens of others. Theirs is BY FAR the most classy! The merchandise is extremely timely AND desirable.I have purchased some items.

      As for the sale, many of the items are still priced for profit!!! There are not too many 70% items. I looked at more than 50 pages Wed. Today there are a lot of sellouts.

      We are getting a store here and I am waiting!!
