Its rare that I've seen a chart as ugly as this stock price. It certainly is cheap. Trading at 3x 2017 and 2016 earnings.

The performance (sales, etc) have held up OK, not growing but not declining as near as I can tell.

The company has bought back a half billion in shares each year for the last couple. The current market cap is 1 billion!

The market is pricing this thing for an implosion. Unless you think that is going to happen, the shares look like a reasonable bet.

By the way, I read an article recently about a past terrible sexual harassment culture and class action lawsuit from employees. But now, it looks like all/many of the executives are women (and half the board) so there might be a yuck factor here but I think they've gotten religion on it.

Its very tempting to classify this as a fallen angel that will re-emerge. But its viewed as a mall stock and that is certainly not the place to be in this market. Feels pretty risky.
