Yesterday's news felt good, and SCSS is up over 28% so far today, currently around $17/share.

I made the (perhaps foolish) decision back in 2007 to ride things out when share prices started dropping. I had no idea how low prices would go, and at times questioned if SCSS would survive.

Judging by stock prices back in the winter of 2009, I wasn't the only one questioning the ability of the company to survive the recession. My compliments to anyone who was brave enough to invest more into SCSS at under $1 - and the market has rewarded you handsomely for that decision.


SCSS reported net sales increased by 22 percent as compared to the year-ago period. The increase in sales was driven by a company-owned comparable sales growth of 26 percent, with the average sales-per-store over the past 12 months reaching $1.4 million, a 26 percent improvement over the prior-year period. Operating income improved by 86 percent to $26.4 million and operating margin improved 469 basis points to 13.7 percent.
