Well, it's been cold and snowing somewhere in the country since mid December. Midwest today, east and west coast hammered in Jan and early Feb. Cold just about everywhere....last years anomaly is long gone.
Thus, management has no more excuses. Inventory #s should be down and expenses now under control with the drop in sheepskin prices and visibility into those pricing trends. It's put up or shut up time for this management team. Anything less than stellar on Feb 28th should be met with shareholder displeasure and insistence that this management team be replaced.
