    nervous nellys

    The stock most likely is responding to the great news from Office Max today that sales will meet high end of
    expectations...thats good news for SPLS because it signals that Christmas and the January back to school numbers are probably going to be strong
    in this general business segment. Keep in mind what I said in a previous posting....the company did not advise analyst that
    they would not meet expectations. That is a positive because I choose to assume that they will at the least meet expectations or
    possibly exceed if the OMX report today is an indication of business trends...I own 1000 shares of SPLS but I think the real place to
    make some money is in OMX. They have a very strong CEO. They are great at controlling store level expenses, they have virtually
    no debt, and they are leaving the QTR's of tough sales comparisons and entering a time of easier comparisons and stronger
    growth.....Standard& Poors just added them to their mid-cap Master List, I've heard Marty Zweig recommended them recently....take a look at
    todays announcement...I'm in for what I hope will be a 1 year ride from 13 to 25.....
