Recommendations: 1
1) Good product with little direct competition.
2) 30% predicted growth rate through the next 2 years. Versus 14% industry average.
3) Buy reccomendations by "experts."
4) 12 (?) new stores in the next 2 years.
5) Packed houses across the country (as reported on this board). I can report the same in Atlanta, with a second store that just opened. Though I haven't been to the new one yet. It opened in a densely populated suburb that has plenty of disposable income.
6) What I've seen on insider trading has been all buys.
7) Trading ranges last three years:
52wk 10.50 to 27.25
99 18.06 to 24.25
98 10.50 to 27.75
97 11.91 to 27.62
8) Adding foreign licensing.

I'm still learning how to read deeper into the balance sheet to find any negatives. Would anybody who is "bearish" on this stock care to enlighten me. Aside from lounging in the same trading range for several years, it appears that this stock has to move soon. Either 30% growth through the next years makes it tremendously undervalued or kills its profits. I've seen other companies so anxious to grow, they build new stores in unsuitable markets and it brings the whole thing down.
