A recent article in Barron's entitled Why Fossil Can Rock (available only to subscribers), has the author waxing optimistic about accessory designer Fossil, Inc. (NASDAQ:FOSL). In fact, the optimistic writer begins the story with a simple statement: "The timing seems excellent for Fossil stock."

The writer contends Fossil offers an appealing value to consumers, considering the stock is trading at just 16 times earnings. Additionally, a portion of Fossil products are branded under the Michael Kors Holdings Ltd. (NYSE:KORS) name, a luxury retailer projected to earn "$4.4 billion in yearly sales by its fiscal year ending March 2017, according to FactSet data."
