    Near term events

    Any thoughts on the odds of this company getting bought out by Adidas or Nike in the near future? Both firms seem to have an underwhelming presence in the outdoor sportswear/shoewear business. COLM and NIKE seem especially compatible because of the high returns on assets of the COLM business and the relative geographical proximity.

    Or another idea would be for the company to leverage up a bit more via an increased stock buyback program.
