    can't imagine

    that SPLS is doing very well...too much competition for a company that sells products that you can get anywhere....and cheaper... for companies to survive and thrive today they need some competitive advantage, through product differentiation, being low cost producer, etc.... Staples has none of that. They may eke out a living for some time, but the company is on the decline and I don't see much to reverse that. Shrinking their footprint costs money too - so they're in a posiiton of shrinking profits and increasing expenses....not an encouraging path..... there are many other companies to invest in which are growing and have great products, technologies, and patents. Stapes has the "that was easy" button. I'll pass on this company as an investment...... "that was easy" decision...

    Sentiment: Sell
