During an economic downturn, clothing companies like Wet Seal are well positioned as parents and lower income twenty-somethings turn to cheaper clothes to satisfy their fashion cravings. In addition, Wet Seal's former CEO returning (who has a massive compensation package set to kick in if the stock gets to 5$), inventory tightening at ardenB division and the launch of a new Ashley Simpson clothing line should boost revenue this quarter serving as an additional catalyst for stock price growth. Look for Wet Seal to top 5$ by back to school time in 2008.
