Just finished reading Seth's HG rec BARE and when I focused on the risks I found compelling reasons to avoid this stock at all cost. Like other than the economy, competition from the big boys and 248M of debt in a "non-growth industry", what more would it take to make me go find something easier? According to Seth's valuation, his target price is $30 in five years, just about at its recent 52 week high. For many investors, that's a little like saying it'll take 5 years to get your money back. Could it be you are not placing enough emphasis on the economy and too much on mathematics to make this selection?So I moved to the Q and A to see if my concerns were misplaced but all I found were more Q's than A's. The question about infomercials was excellent with a clear, concise answer. Unfortunately the rest was mostly opinion unsubstantiated by fact,(I don't think, I am not worried, consumers will come back to the brand) all of which beg the question Why!I have come to expect much better from HG sooooo,Pardon me, if I'm sentimental, when we say goodbye, now and then there's a Fool such as I.
I hear you. For now I am just trying to take advantage of the big price drop. Luckily I did not get into this at earlier prices. Good Luck. Tom
This has nothing to do with the financials of the company. But, I have been reading non-high-end magazines for women/moms (Parents, etc.). Recently there have been new companies coming out with less-expensive mineral based cosmetics, similar to Bare's and available at the corner drugstore. Has anyone looked into the competition for this product?
Probably not but I will look for it on the next HG update. Good post, thank you. Bruce
