Hey Diane,

I too have been watching volcom for a while. While the recent slowing within the retail sector might be a drag on the company, in the long run I think volcom is a winner. Its obvious that todays market requires investors to be very selective (its not like you can go gobbling up every .com like in the 90's and expect to make money). That being said, I think volcom is one of those unique selections that will continue to appeal to its core audience and will continue to grow its brand world wide. Like you said, the company has a fair amount of cash and I think that puts them in a great position to weather any coming storm. A PEG ratio of .59 is very attractive, but if growth does slow, that PEG might expand. However, even at a PEG of 1 I still think this company is worth investing in. I have started a small position myself and look to purchase more on any major pullbacks.
