    buyout?

    XEC has been an obvious buyout candidate for a long time. There are not many publicly held, successful independent O &G companies, and I'm guessing that they have one or another investment banker or business broker banging on their door several times a week.

    Clearly, this company is not for sale at this time and actually, long term holders have done pretty well.

    That is not to say that someone might not make an unfriendly tender or that management will not change its mind in the future but right now, I'm not counting on a buyout.

    Just my opinion.

    Can this be some kind of out of the money hedge against a short position and have nothing to do with prospects for the company?

    I walked into one of their stores for the first time to look at men's jackets ($128 - $189). I'm 6ft tall; 175 pounds. The medium jacket was so tight it would barely zip. The large had sleeves that hung down half way to my knees. The sales girl with the silver nose ring said that you had to be a special shape to wear their men's clothes. I guess that doesn't include the skinny male models in their catalog either because the jackets don't fit them very well either.

    I get that their products are a fad and this is basically a women's apparel company which is fine. But if they can't do a better job on men's clothes, they probably shouldn't carry them. In any event, the designer shouldn't quit his day job.
