Nag, nag, nag.... Still no marketing/promotional hype from management. Not even a peep about holiday sales this year. (Unlike competitors QVC & SAH that earlier announced record holiday results.)
I find Shop at Home's stock rise and volume most puzzling. In my opinion, they're not in ValueVision's league when it comes to product quality, on-air presentation or management expertise. Nevertheless, they've somehow been able to captivate the masses with nothing more than E-Commerce hype. Shop at Home, despite a well touted longevity, has long been considered a joke in the cable industry. SAH investors apparently laughing all the way to the bank with the recent upswing. On the other hand, they certainly have done a better job marketing and promoting their company. (I wonder why we can't see a AP news story about THIS company???)
VV's suspicious "low profile" pertaining to marketing their TV shopping business, coupled with little or no E-Commerce hype, is very unnerving. I'll echo sentiments from others on this board that there must be BIG NEWS coming down the pike....
As a side note, VV airing taped "sales" today, unlike competitors airing music, public service announcements, etc. I suppose every dollar helps, though a day off on X-mas might be a nice gesture.
