I have lately become interested in Pacific Sunwear (PSUN), which appears somewhat Tweeneresque to me....Help a newbie Fool and comment ... any holes you can poke in PSUN or my comments?

I strongly recommend you look up the SEC filings for yourself and run the numbers through the Rule Maker criteria, and see how PSUN stacks up. Go back as far back in history as you can, at least five years if possible. I've found looking back a few years can give one a better perspective on a company as a Rule Maker, which is what you really want if you think it is a Rule Tweener.

They plan to open 125 new stores this year and kick off a massive TV ad campaign.

Then I would watch debt like a hawk. Rule Makers carry low debt loads, which may not be the cast here.

Good luck!


PS-you can find the SEC Edgar database of SEC filings at
