Changes in the cadence for new orders and reorders?
Marc B. Crossman
Yes, I mean, they're -- we're looking at doubling the doors and tripling the orders, just to give you kind of a rough sense of the magnitude of change. Now summer is already bought, locked in and on its way coming in, so we're not going to increase the doors or the presentations in the existing doors, because we're just already locked in. We don't have our final buys for the fall, but obviously, we're in constant communication with them, and we are obviously going to make a big step forward going into the fall season.
both of you have good points . you will not find many companies at this price that has earnings but in the same token. nobody here has more than 5% of their investment capital tied up in this company. i have been accumulating this company but i realize that this is a speculation. i have about 42,000 shares of stock but it represents less than 1% of my portfolio. if it goes bankrupt i will not get hurt.
if there are people here who have more than 5% of their money tied up in this company you need to adjust your portfolio and get it back in balance
where else in the retail space can you find this sort of growth story. you are joking aren't. you made me laugh. there are alot of companies growing revenues and eps. this company is only growing revenue with a slight improvement in earning.
6c for this year is nothing. 11c for next year is not enough to move the stock price much
it is one thing to pump a stock when there is a real reason to do it. this company needs to show it can be another stock like true religion. from 2003 to 2004 they increased revenue 10 fold and then followed it up with triple digit revenue for the next few years after that . i did not get in the ground floor of true but did manage to get in at 90c. from july 2004 to july 2005 it went from 67c to i believe 17 or 18 dollars but by july of 2005 its revenue was more in one quarter than in the whole year of 2003 and compared to 2004 was off the charts.
Well then, I guess we could use a little hype, $30 by Santa, lol.
Yakoda, I owned the stock then and I can't recall $3.60. I remembered
3.02 to 3.09 something like that, but that was all. So I checked
historical, and you are right, it was about a 4 day period. I must
have been out of town at the time, or out of my mind if I didn't sell.
