    should we blame options again ?

    Tomorrow is options expiring and DECK has been down 3 days in a row. There are more down days than up in this stock after the carnage in the summer. So everytime we've a big jump, shorts jump all over it because they know that there is no change in the micro environment at DECK's. It is a failure on management's part to energize the investment community about the company's plan and strategy.

    It happens a lot a this footwear company. Look at CROX and SKX.

    • sure....blah, blah, blah. I have no idea what your expectations are. Is apple having a problem communicating to due to the stock falling 30% in the last few months? Or how about Under Armour falling 25%? Or how about Dollar Tree's Management due to the stock falling 30% in the last 4 months?

      Yea, it must be all these pretty great companies managements; fire tham all! Now. A stock can lag for years!!! and then grow 50% in a single year and the average comes out to 10% a year over 5 years or not. The kye is to accumulate shares of great companies on the chea, while they lag or go down, and then when they have those really great years, due to your great investing, you make the percentage thatbeats the market. It is all you can do.

      I know what you are looking for; check out this place called Las Vegas. They have everything you want.

      • I think I've invested DECK before you even discover it. Yes, there is value investing but these companies you mentioned are also hot speculative companies. AAPL is definitely reached the height with iPhone 4 and Job's departure signals the height of their cycle. I'm not condemning the company but I think the stock will take many years to return to $700. Just like MSFT, they are still making billions but their stock is not going anywhere.

        Don't you know that Wall street is the biggest casinos in the world ? You're already in Las Vegas but in a much bigger scale. I hope you're not trying to justify holding this stock since you don't want to take a loss.

        DECK's management had a chance to motivate the investment community. That is part of their duties as senior executives and that is what the Board is paying their to do. They had a chance in the conference yesterday and they failed to do so. They could invest their time in a special presentation at their headquarters for the investment community. Why do you think we're getting the downgrades ? It is done for a reason. Yes, their Uggs are selling well and it is winter but what about their other brands ? Just like AAPL, so much revenues are hindered on the performance on one line of product. If for any reason Uggs is out of flavor, then DECK will be in trouble.

        DECK, Under Armour, SKX are hugely speculative stocks and rode up to unrealistic values when their products were favorable. Now that the dust has settled, what we're seeing now is their true value. Any mishaps on inventory with send DECK down even further.

        I used to be an investor but with so much manipulation in Wall Street, I've turned myself into a trader. Swing trade on this stock is best for the short term until the company can fully convinced WS that they can continue with their high growth.

    • It sounds like you're looking for a get rich quick scheme. You've come to the wrong place. You need to do your DD, and then have the money and the time to make that solid return. If you don't have the patience, time, money, or the balls then you need to go somewhere else. Instead of whining just sell and move on to something else. Remember that nothing is guaranteed.
