I've been watching FD for over a year, and I think I'm about ready to take the plunge. The numbers look good. Schwab, for one, has had FD on their "A" list (on & off) for a long time.

I generally stay away from retail stocks (also banking, but that's another story) because of the many boom-bust cycles for "hot" restaurants & smaller shops. Sure, there's money to be made, but you have to be very disciplined to watch for the signs to get out. FD seems to be relatively immune from the big gyrations.

Is anyone watching this board? If so, please let me know what you think of taking a long position on this stock right now.

Any FD employees out there? What's the good news?
