I have noticed some patterns. When sales are off LTD always mentions the weather. Could it be that product or approach might be off? I look at this stock as a possible win in the long run. The clientèle of this company run from teens to established households just watch your local mall.

The stock is currently down almost 20% from the high. This is largely due to the miss at Valentines and the gradual ramp up in debt if you look at the last three year end reports.

What is holding me off from purchasing this stock is that the company is in the specialty retailing industry. Seems that if times are hard some items sold by the company are not as appealing during down times for the stressed middle class. Perhaps the market for the company is changing.

I am interested in seeing if I am reading this company correctly and what would or could be changed to invite a solid investment with this company.
