    How O dell is worse than Obama

    Odell has failed to turn this ship around since 2008. He is paid 2 million a year with stock etc. Under his leadership This small company has not increased share holder value - it is actually lower than when he took over in 2008. Customer service still stinks in the stores- Comps are flat. Store count is up but revenue is down. Apparently leadership classes were not offered at denver university- for accounting majors.

    Obama makes 400,000 a year and started during the financial meltdown. The US economy has shown some improvement during the period of time that Odell showed none. Obama blames it on Bush and congress. O dell blames the previous CEO's and the people he hired.

    I bet Romney and Bain could fix this once proud company. Its time for a change -how many more years of failed leadership must be endured? Does anyone think he will eventually fix this? Im talking about o dell & PepBoys.

    Apply the same measuring stick used for President and O dell is Jimmy Carter but without the IQ and like ability. Hold till there is a change


    Sentiment: Hold

      • Hey genius- He took over in April 2008 - the stock was over 11. It will be 5 years in April -today the stock is at 10 and change. So todays price is still lower than when he took over- Where is the share holder value? Where are the increased sales? Time for a change.... he is a joke. A Bean counter that cant add to the amount of beans to Drive sales
        I bet PBY could use the 10 million in compensation back..

        Where was sears when he was pushed out?
