I worked for Foot Locker for 7 years, and in that time accumulated well over 1000 shares of stock. I feel rather fortunate I SOLD them when I did (and broke even on most of it). I currently only hold a token 50 shares which Z was kind enough to give me as part of their matching contributition (401K).

Anyway... you need to make the decision based upon real world conditions. How does Venator fit into the whole scope of things in the retail world? As you say, much fat has been cut... but retail is a cut-throat world. People will continue to buy sneakers and apparel for a long time to come. The question is whether they'll buy enough of it to attract the attention of Wall Street. I don't think so myself. Not now at least. Given the market value of Z, I wouldn't be surprised if Venator is taken over by a larger company someday. Who knows.

Do be sure to get our of your store and look at the REAL picture. I know the long hours you work. It's important sometimes to think of things without the clouding of the company propaganda you speak of.

Good Luck,

Did I ever tell you about the 400% gain I had in Nike! That was fun! Those are the fun ones to get on when you can't keep the 'stuff' in stock!
