I have lately become interested in Pacific Sunwear (PSUN), which appears somewhat Tweeneresque to me. It has a market cap of just below $1 billion, and seems to have successfully marketed itself to the big-spending 12-24 age group. It has experienced some impressive growth over the last couple years, and has found itself a new market in d.e.m.o, an outlet it acquired a few years ago. They plan to open 125 new stores this year and kick off a massive TV ad campaign.

It has some negatives, though: its cash flow ratio's a bit on the high side (over 2, by my quick-glance estimate), and despite the growth it's still about 1/40 the size of the Gap.

Help a newbie Fool and comment ... any holes you can poke in PSUN or my comments?
