    • thanks for sharing Thomas. I did nothing on monday. did not buy or sell...but it does seem for a brief while some stocks were down 15-20% and could have been good bargains.

      Coming to the point raised by Dr Price, why do you hold on to your positions much higher than your estimate of value. Is it because

      1) your estimates are conservative and you have often sold early so want to capture more

      2) you acknowledge the momentum factor that can take stocks from a certain level to much higher coz the 'stock is working'.?

    • Good post. I would like to point out the earnings were flat year over year. 2014 had the charges for store closures. The other negatives i could see from press release would be negative SSS in the quarter and guidance for 2015 to have -1 to -2% SSS. GM was slightly weaker by 30 bps. So a growth stock valuation was assigned and when the market did not get those results, the growth multiple was taken away in 1 day. Mr Market knows best :)

      $200m buyback announced. Net cash. Cash flow have been good last 3 years. Most of capex is growth capex. EPS guidance is 1.55-1.65 for 2015.
