Hi Sarah
Have I said congrats on your Analysting? If not, Congratulations. I smiled widely when you were named in the RB A team.

I just got back from holiday and was excited to see your pick of BARE. With the current swoon I thought this may be a fantastic pick. I've decided to sit on the sidelines and if anyone is interested some of my thoughts can be seen here

In summary: Despite the fantastic reward to risk profile of 3:1 there is a real chance of major capital loss. I have seen a few other stellar small cosmetic companies implode over the years and while BARE certainly looks like good value with a possible high payoff the downside is zero.


PS Sarah I look forward to your next pick.
One other comment. While Lynch preached buying what you know, there is also a danger in buying what you love. It is harder to be objective with a company when you personally love the product.)
