Free cash flow after capex is $890 million. That is $1.80/shr they can use for stock repurchase and dividends. This is always a next year story but with cotton prices collapsing and cost control in place and online and international doing well we have operating optimism. The key to this stock has always been its super low EBITDA multiple which is now 4.8. When it starts to turn, private equity will take it private. They are getting ready by shrinking market cap with stock repurchase at an incredible rate of almost 20% per year. The market cap is only $9B now --well within reach of KKR.
The news can not get much worse so any good news will take us much higher.
