If you look at the financial strength of Crocs and their increasing revenue every quarter, as well as opening 35-40 new stores before years end, it is unquestionably the stronger company. However the management doesn’t know how to play the Wall Street game as well as Decker’s, or for that matter most other companies. If you see a company like Skechers who has no income for 2012 but beats the estimated loss and the stock goes up, you know what I am talking about. For Crocs look at the historical chart and you will see a similar pattern in Q4 2012 as in Q4 2011 only to move up greatly in the following year. My $ is on Crocs and who knows they may be the ones who get bought out and not Deckers. Just remember Wall Street is filled with crooked annalists and others that manipulate the action of certain stocks, so picking a winner is not that easy. My money is on Crocs.
