Never been to a Shoe Carnival before but after a little research it appears this company provides both a unique shopping experience and value priced brand name products.

Couple things I really like:

1. New advertising campaign, aggressive expansion, and simultaneous closure of underperforming stores will increase both revenues and operational efficiency over the long term. They opened 39 stores last quarter which immediately contributed $10 million in revenue or over $250,000 per store.

2. Decent balance sheet with no short or LT debt to speak of. I would like to see a little more liquidity though. Cash and quick ratio are .54 and .74. Only when taking inventory into account do them seem liquid. Current ratio is 4.55.

3. I like their investment in IT and what it does for their business. They have a real time POS system that allows them to track performance of specific merchandise and advertise poorly performing items via an in-store microphone in real time. They have daily temporary sales that moves merchandise quickly.

They're a little pricy but I like them in the future. I hadn't even heard of them until now. It'll be interesting to see how their national expansion pans out.

Positive:
- A good relative value in this expensive market
- Have slashed guidance for Q4 sales and earnings -> should remove negative surprises for upcoming earnings conference
- Longer term they still can growth their unique business model relative to other shoe retailers and take additional market share

Negative:
- Latest slowdown might develop into something more serious

Everyone needs shoes and this store's funky setup and circus themed design make it a fun place to visit and they have killer deals that make you want to come back for more.

Pure value play. Trading at 20% discount to book; good cash flow, little debt, no intangibles/bogus assets, company buying back stock, projected eps growth near industry ave but trading at 33% discount to peers. Only thing missing is a dividend but they can afford to pay one if they want to.
