This is what it's all about. The trend is your friend despite the naysayers.
Rad is moving uptown and will be an excellent buy, long term.
The monthly report for December discounted the closed stores as well as the new remodeled stores.
The newly remodeled stores, that were counted, did very well.
That remodeling has only been accomplished for 30% of the stores, with more to come in 2015.
All the stores that have a high rate of pilferage have been closed. Leases have been terminated in many stores and in many cases will drop off the debt side of Rad.
So for 2015 look for more remodeled stores.
If these stores bring in the income like the newly remodeled stores have done, then it's upside in PPS for the future.

To Casey: What are doing on the CVX board? Go back to the RAD board where you belong.
Since I have you on ignore I have no idea what your response is. But I imagine it is to attack CVX.
You mean Al Gore and his rich cronies.
No one, and I mean no one controls, or has any affect on global changes than good ol mother nature.
Why?? Because they are so diversified in upstream and downstream production and products.
They will make money no matter what the cost of oil is.
Sure, not as much, but they won't crater as much as the other majors.
Long and strong!
P.S. This is the problem with our educational system. Be it financial, health care or how to balance a checkbook. They are paying more attention to their facebook or playing games on computers.
Not being short is a pretty smart move.
High sixes? I doubt that.
Lower maybe due to MM activity, but the sixes are gone.
Global cooling is here. Please don't say it's true VP Al Gore.
You need to make global warming come again. I'm freezing my but off.
Oh by the way: How much did you and your friends make in the last few years telling us that mother nature was not to blame but us citizens of the world.
Simple answer! Boeing allows pilots, who have years of experience, to fly the aircraft by hand when everything goes to s;it.
Bottom line, you can be a great young video game player who has limited experience in hands on flying until the game goes TILT. At that point you can't just reboot and start over. Unless you are one swift game player who can make your aircraft behave your way and not what your computers say it's our way.
Having great aviation skills in times of unusual circumstances is worth your weight in gold.
If you have read some great posts in the past few months you would have a general idea on why the long term holders, such as myself, feel that way.
Been in RAD for 7 years.
Nobody. RAD's debt load is too high at the present time.
RAD is better off by themselves to climb out of their debt.
Don't get me wrong, I think the Airbus aircraft are very good.
But when the #$%$ the fan it's nice to know you only need to switch the autopilot off and fly the damn thing, if you know how, without trying to figure out what the heck the plane is trying to do during difficult situations.
Yes I also believe this is another A.France type accident.
But in this case, as reported, the Captain had a few thousand of hours in type and many more thousands in other type aircraft.
Can't wait to read what was on the voice recorder and the aircraft recorder. Whatever is learned, hopefully, will lead to safer operational procedures and aircraft safety upgrades if needed.
This year has been a tough one for aviation.
The souls lost and the families left behind is tragic.
I flew in Asia during two monsoon seasons and flew throughout the Mohawk and Hudson valley.
Good point. My daughter, who is in college, has been told that wealth should be shared. Those who are rich should share that wealth to those less fortunate. I agree up to a point.
As I explained to my child, after I had to de;brainwash her from her professors, that giving to those in NEED and UNABLE to work was the blessed way.
But to have a person or persons have their money taken away for those people who are able bodied and lazy was stealing.
P.S. I give to numerous charities including the Salvation Army the homeless and to other children's charities for those that have been displaced for one reason or the other.
God bless those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
My question to my Boeing experts is: could this Air Asia flight been too heavy to climb beyond 36K?
Well said. What some investors don't realise is AA is not the same company it was 8 years ago when it lost its way being totally tied to the price of aluminum. Their R&D investments into new products as well as their selling of the continuous losing business's of the past has made AA a much better investment long term.
