    This stock should be up nicely today..I don'r understand

    COH is doing a retail conference on the 14th. I expect the stock to start to recover because of it. Bears have misrepresented the CEO's words about store traffic so that all retail would take a hit while pointing at COH. I think that he will be at the conference to dispell the perceived problems. I saw a statement lately from him that said that there is no big problem caused by the decreased store traffic and that it was essentially blown out of proportion. But Bears and the media prefer to dwell on the "slow traffic" and disappointing retail SSS numbers. The buyback announcement indicates that all is well and that COH is undervalued.

    • Here's a sampling from the list of stocks our screen pulled up today.

      Estimated 5-Year Growth
      CAPS Rank (out of 5)

      America Movil (NYSE: AMX)

      Noble (NYSE: NE)

      Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM)

      Infosys Technologies (Nasdaq: INFY)

      Coach (NYSE: COH)

      Tata Motors (NYSE: TTM)

      Weatherford International (NYSE: WFT)

      Data from Yahoo! Finance. Star rankings from CAPS. All data as of Nov. 7.

      Talk is cheap
      Providing wireless services in emerging markets in Latin America has been the key to dramatic growth at communications giant America Movil, yet the company still trades at a current earnings multiple of 22. I've written before about the company's cheap valuation relative to peers targeting emerging markets, and today's price still makes the company attractive.

      CAPS investors largely agree, with 1,073 of 1,084 investors who have rated America Movil giving it the thumbs-up to beat the market going forward. Savvy management and underpenetrated markets have combined to help the company maintain strong operating margins of higher than 25% for the past six quarters. With subscriber penetration levels well below saturation in many operating countries and new value-added services coming into the mix, America Movil still has a fertile field yet to be fully exploited.

      It's in the bag
      As far as retailers go, handbag and accessory maker Coach is a cut above the rest. The maker of premium handbags, jewelry, and footwear has also delivered premium same-store sales well above those of its peers (and well above those of companies that target less affluent shoppers). Consistent revenue growth of more than 25% for several years has made Coach one monster of a stock, demonstrating superior management that knows the high-end consumer market well.

      After Coach reported "only" 19% comps growth at its U.S. stores in the most recent quarter, investors dropped the shares more than 10%. But while you won't find one of those chic handbags marked down on the bargain table, value investors will notice the share price sporting a new, more discounted look these days. CAPS investors are still divided on whether Coach will outperform the market, though, with more than 10% of CAPS All-Stars giving the stock the thumbs-down.

      Let 73,000 investors be the judge
      It may be difficult to discern just where opportunities lie with large-cap growth stocks, especially when you're just "running the

    • Come on; do you actually belive they would let the stock fall over 15% as a result of "mis representation by bears" if he had something that could STOP the LAND SLIDE!
      I think they will talk on the 14th; people will ignore it or worse and this stock will slide sideways to lower through the holidays! NOT A LOT OF $500 handbags in stockings this year with current concerns on the horizon.........
