GOSHA was added to Value Line's list of 100 Timely Stocks on February 21st. IBD gives it among its highest EPS (91), Relative Strength (96), and Timeliness (A) ratings. In my experience, when a stock becomes a top pick using VL and IBD criteria, it usually is about to enter a period of sustained growth (in fact, this is the basis for the Formula 90 stock screen, which has an average annual return of over 30% over the last ten years). So I bought on February 24th at 37 7/8, and since then have gained nearly 6%. Not bad for two weeks.

If you're interested, here's some fundamentals:

4th Q 96 = 0.38 EPS
4th Q 97 = 0.65 EPS

One year's EPS growth of 71%. Again, not bad!

Is anyone else following this stock? Any thoughts on its future? Given its relatively low PE compaired to the S&P 500, zero debet, the initial successes of the company's new management team, and GOSHA's excellent future earnings prospects, this looks like an exciting time to get in. In fact, climbing retail sales stats over the last week indicate that clothing manufacturers like GOSHA should have a strong quarter.
