Well, I signed on because I saw good earnings just reported and the stock down $4 today. I couldn't figure out why, so I am thinking about making my first investment in it. I have a friend who invests in it and used to work there and thinks it is an excellent company and a good stock. IBD gives it a B+. They have low debt and a lower P/E than many competitors. They aren't as subject to fads as some others retail apparel companies. I don't see anything negative about it at present.

So, I'm off to the trading bar right now to take advantage of this dip -- I hope.


There isn't much discussion on this board -- I would like to see more.

Also, I have never seen one of their stores, and would like to but there isn't one in my town.

Congratulations for starting so young. Oh, how I wish I had . . .
Try taking one of the Motley Fool online courses. I sure learned a lot that way.
