Playing the seasonality of the ticker. Seems to peak by April and then bottoms between late July and sometime in October. Underperform for the next 7ish months and then will switch to outperform call.

2009 Net income increased 3% despite decline in sales of 6%. Becoming a more streamlined company b/c of their "war on waste": a campaign started in 2007 designed to eliminate inefficiencies in freight and occupancy costs, with a goal of eliminating $100 million in costs over five years. Good return on asset and return on investment ratios. Strong liquidity. Negatives are more debt than its competitors, worse inventory turnover ratio, and receivables turnover ratio. Finally p/e ratio of 11.0 is quite low vs 90.0 of industry.
