  • There's no bottom here. I'm thinking about $9.80, maybe 9. Initially a drop of several days. Kerplunk!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    raggwead, please, no thinking. This is the stock market. My back of mind thought is that news always leaks near the core, especially around earnings. Today's sharp up followed by sharp down is not good news to me, making me wonder if the wind carried some bad numbers midday. We'll all know more tomorrow, but again I say to all, the bottom is in on this stock, we're not going to $2.25 again. Any bad news will prove temporary in my opinion, and upside guidance going forward is what I expect. A prolonged turnaround would merely delay the positive in that view.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    My thoughts: Twitter about and from MSO has been very quiet of late. Don't know if that means anything other than winter and/or uncertainty. My guess is that economic headwinds continue to plague many retailers, and that weakness will impact merchandising at MSO too. And the fourth quarter was somewhat sluggish, and Q1 2014 won't be any better. But because of the new CEO, downsizing, layoffs, and merchandising, the bottom is in several months ago as the determined plan for turnaround has begun. Projections going forward may not be rosy, but they won't be filled with despair either. My bet remains on any distress being short-term and temporary. As a company with merchandising components, MSO does not have the costs of owning and operating physical retail stores. It's not something that can be said of ARO or JCP, and I think that is a technical edge here.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
