    Missed Earnings is a Deeper Issue

    A miss, is a miss, is a miss. And as well the long awaited much heralded e-commerce site is delayed--heard it was to go live August 20--date was set in stone with no exceptions, no excuses. Now there is a posting on the web says in a few days---like people are itching for another shoe web site. E-commerce is not going to provide a substantial incremental lift. As well, they missed the huge back to school seasons for e-commerce lift.

    Problems are deeper---I was told that TV advertising was only done in markets with issues. Where I am there is Shoe Carnival spot multiple times a day. Think there are deep branding and merchandising issues--they point to leadership

    • No question these were very good results forget expectations on earnings for a moment as analysts are always wrong high or low. The quality of the growth is fine and they in fact are on the acquisition screen for a strategic investor. So relax and buy this dip. cash is king and the cash flow is excellent yoy as well as earnings and sales are strong. Not a problem but an opportunity. Buy here and sell at 29 for a trade. Buy and hold which I am not a big fan of but I do believe an acquisition could be in the offing.Good fit for you know who.
