    Market Research

    I just visited my local Best Buy. I was checking out the headphone section when the manager happened to walk by. He asked me if I needed any help. I informed him that I was a SKUL shareholder. I was curious about the Dr. Dre competition. He started laughing and said that you have no worries as the top 3 at Beats have broken off. He then said that Skullcandy was a top notch company and made a quality product...

    Just saying...

    • OP

      I was raised "Disco, Classic Rock or Hair Bands"... Yeah the youth of today are much more diverse in their music tastes.


      Skullcandy's demographic is more diverse.. Heck an old dude like me has been buying the product since the mid 2000's!

      Just saying...

    • <<< To draw similarities between these two brands is ridiculous.... It's like saying Adelle sucks because you think Flo' Rida' is better. >>>

      Sorry the parallel is lost on me. I have to admit; I have no idea who those people are. In my day you were either a rocker or a disco dude. Fortunately, disco was just a fad.

      Speaking of fads......

    • Exactly KG!

      All you have to look at is the demographic profile of Dr.Dre's headphones...

      OP keeps saying they rule the market... It is a competitor of SKUL but a small demo.

      Turtle Beach and their gaming dominance will be a hurdle as SKUL gets traction into gaming...

    • I don't think all of you guys understand the appeal of the skullcandy brand. No self respecting wanna be thug rap gangster is going to be wearing skull candy headphones (while walking across the street not paying attention to traffic while rapping to himself), he's going to be wearing Beats.

      However, for the majority of the young market that loves apple products, they love skullcandy.

      To draw similarities between these two brands is ridiculous.... It's like saying Adelle sucks because you think Flo' Rida' is better.

    • Well, I feel sorry for the BBY manager especially if he is tied to an ESOP retirement plan. BBY has lost more than half its value over the past year and one half.

      Also, the States and Muni's need to be able to capture sales taxes from on-line purchases. That will level the retail playing field, bring in much needed revenue to local communities, and stop the upward pressure on sales tax rates which is a killing sprial for local businesses. The current situation is absurd and since States are being held hostage from the likes of AMZN, the Feds need to step in and force the issue.

      • I was in a Best Buy yesterday myself and while walking from the front door to the TVS ran smack into the Skullcandy 2 sided turntable right in the middle of the isle. The pemium placement in the entire store. The only the only stand in the middle of the main isle. Holy Cow I could not believe it. Go check for youself one point at this point I would think you would do some actual due dilligence before you open your mouth again

        so wrong for so long

    • On the field research is good... but, I wouldn't put much weight on it.

      My bet is purely short term and based on technicals, big money & general market euphoria. But, if the broader market turns down then SKUL will be attacked mercilessly by the shorts.

      Top 3 WHAT have broken off?
