All Ask Cogitator99 a Question

    Cogitator99 : What's the story in SPLS? I saw the large drop but I haven't been following closely. I bought CSCO (before the run-up) because it was selling at 5x SPLS is an interesting story that I think is misunderstood by the investment community; take a look at my value contest submission, and I would be happy to discuss it further. I looked at GM as well (once Einhorn took a stake), but am still uncomfortable with the pension - with that being said, it certainly looks cheap on a ...

    Cogitator99 : Sorry for the late reply, didn't log-in for a while. Thought it was okay. If you were to believe all the negative press, it sounded like JCP was goi Yeah the analysts did a great job yet again - predicting the company's impending doom without taking the time to look at the balance sheet or the cash flow statement; as usual, watching CNBC is a big headwind to intelligent investing.

    Cogitator99: Hey Science, what did you think of the latest Q?
    Hey Cogitator,

    It was about what I expected (was looking for a -20 to -25% comp); clarification on some balance sheet items was helpful. Besides that, everything is coming along nicely. What did you think?
