    I Hope She Hits $15.......Gee Another

    25%+ cut to this market cap, and we'll be looking at one of the better buys I have seen in some time. 10 points below a recent senior Insider purchase isn't too shabby either.....Good luck to all.....

    • Direct Damages

      1. Damage to the store buildings
      2. Damage to warehouses, inventory, and infrastructure
      3. Loss of business for 4+ days including important weekend

      Indirect Effects

      1. Disruption and damages to lives of employees
      2. Disruption in restocking of stores (no gas, no power,problems with trucks, damages to roads)
      3. Loss of tourists to the state (fear factor)
      4. Residents are concerned with rebuilding, not sports activities and shift spending patterns

      Reports, please...

    • Uninformed shorts and rose-colored spectacled longs,

      1. Monday is a holiday.

      2. Most of the east coast stores if not all of the TSA stores will be closed this weekend (no employees, no shoppers, no gas supplies and maybe no power).

      3. The question is if this loss of business will be covered by insurance; and

      4. whether labor day weekend sales will be displaced and will be take place later this month.

      5. personally I think that 3rd quarter revenues for Florida, a major state for TSA, will be down 5-15% because of the two storms.

    • FYI, here are all the stores TSA has in Florida -- more than in any other state (from the TSA website):

      They are probably gonna git hard. What do you think -- should I cover my short position on Monday, or wait?????

    • Selling camping equipment, laterns etc. Batteries, every dark cloud has a silver lining.

    • No, but this one could really hurt TSA. According to the last CC, the previous hurricane was nominal. This one is gonna slicethe state in half. Can't wait for the excuses to come on this one.....Good luck to all.....

    • Anyone have information on

      1. The number of East Coast Florida stores?
      2. Whether those store locations are leased or owned?
      3. The sort of catastrophic insurance that TSA carries?


    • Actually, one needs to adjust for the conversion of the 'old TSA shares.' Your range is thusly (roughly) $3-5 per share......Yes it has been there (thankfully), but this mgmt team will have their keesters hanging out the car window long B-4 then.

      Management needs to 'show us da money.' If not, they will be replaced....JMO.....Good luck to all.........

    • Does anyone think if the morale in the stores were higher, it would reflect in more sales and a better stock outlook? Doesn't it go up the ladder?

      The northeast lost a few more managers last week to add to the list of high manager turnover post-merger.

      • As an intereted observer who lives here in the NE, I can tell you morale around here at TSA is tied directly to 2 things- 1) leadership in the stores and 2) foot traffic.

        Some of the changes recently were actually good. There were some bad managers and hopefully better leaders will emerge at the stores. Foot traffic is a result of location (which for the most part is OK) and marketing/advertising. I am concerned that our advertising has become out of touch. It was better before the merger. The marketing is still good. we have a couple of pretty good programs with Julie and special promotional appearences that always bring out the crowds. This is when the morale and excitement are at their best. Morale and boredom are the same thing around the stores. keep us busy with customers and the attitude about the company and jobs becomes positive. All these attributes does affect the people at the store level.
