I heard that one of the consequences of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center (or perhaps only a parallel phenomenon?) is a post-9/11 pregnancy boom. Have you seen any news of this, and wouldn't this bode well form GOSHA?--gruffbear
I've heard a report that there has been an increase in
Ooops, sorry about the last message, somehow submitted it before I was done. Anyhow, I heard a similar rport, except it only said that there was an increase in the amount of sex americans were having--which should logically lead to more babies. But I wouldn't think it would be a huge increase, not enough to vastly change Oshkosh's future much. But just a guess.
I would also guess that any increase in births related to 9-11 is inconsequential to Osh Kosh. One thing I have been wondering about, though, is what is the longer term trend of births in USA? If we could forcast this to any degree of confidence, it might be useful information.
I would also guess that any increase in births related to 9-11 is inconsequential to Osh Kosh.Perhaps not, though. Consider the phenomenon of the Post-WWII "baby boom." Changes in the American psyche following 9/11 might have a huge impact on the birth rate. This could be a leading indicator.--GruffBear
Also must consider "whom" are having these babies. Upper middle class, educated, brand conscious parents? Or, lower income, budget minded, WalMart is just fine for the six months they'll wear it parents. I bought the stock just for fun because I am a grandmother who can now afford to put her grandchild in OshKosh. I could only dream of it when my kids were little. The company needs to work more on brand recognition to the new generation. I've spoken to many young mothers who haven't heard of them. Not good!
