Conde Nast Goes For The Knot (KNOT)

| About: XO Group (XOXO)

Today's New York Times says that publishing giant Conde Nast is beefing up its online bridal presence. Conde Nast owns the largest bridal magazines. Part of the reason given was the success of The Knot Inc. (NASD:KNOT), a stock we wrote about last week and felt was trading too high due to competitive risks.

Conde Naste's entry into this business is likely to make The Knot's life a lot more difficult.
