    So bad because they over estimated what would happen in the business. They calculated the was a dinosaur and would go belly up. Business would go to Amazon and paper was obsolete. Others betting we will use paper for a while yet and Amazon is not all THAT.

    Looking 6 months out.. it could be should they merge. THAT is what this is all about.

  • I purchased just before merger on belief that merger in this situation would be a good thing. Two weak companies under improved management trim fat. That simple. The current management has wisely underestimated the forecasting and consistently beat expectations. I expect they will continue to deliver what they say they will as they have so far to date. Office supplies is not rocket science. They have favorable financing environment to shrink number of stores and negotiate better contracts on existing ones. Yes the market is shrinking as they share the business. It will not go extinct as the shorts want to believe.. because we will always need paper and Office Depot is as good a place as any to get it.

    Wish I had cash. Also wish those that bash this stock would short it. It is going up.. just a matter of time and is a solid candidate to double in under 5 years.

    I agree that ODP has a good chance of beating earnings expectations. The economy is improving and you can expect office supplies to benefit. I am a big believer that this merger is a no brainer and merging with Staples is an equally simple minded winner. ODP has been taking a beating long enough.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Cramer also supports Staples buying ODP

    Office Depot is going to make money. They merged and they have a lot of positive news ahead. Should they merge this will be another easy double. They have a new head quarters and eliminated half of middle management waste.. eliminated excess stores..combined advertising and internet..more leverage with suppliers. You can believe nobody uses paper or internet companies rule. Office Depot has a lot of contract business and they are not going anywhere. Slow steady growth ahead exception would be if Staples and Office Depot merge then it will not be slow.
