Asa, Corbina, and all the other ID's repeating the same thing over and over about SSS, you're kind of wasting your time. And Cot, you talked for over 3 years about the lousy earnout Joe's had with Dahan, now that you don't have that, we'll hear about the 9.168M to get rid of it for the next 3 years. Really guys this is a yahoo message board where traders rarely go, so the rhetoric is wasted.
Keep rejoicing in the past. Too bad the trend in same store sales is on a downward slope and gravitating toward flat to negative. 2013 SSS will be much much worse than 2012. Even Crossman is modeling for low single digit same-store sales increases. Translation: expect flat to negative same-store sales.
Q: If company A is making minimal (practically zero) profit on 30 retail stores, and company A does not benefit from operating leverage through scaling, how much profit will company A make on 60 retail stores.
