    This stock looks quite like a no-brain for buying. Don't know why there are so heavy a short portion out there, and still there.


    Here is a quite easy logic for valuation:


    Above $600 million revenue per year; let's simply assume a 4% profit margin, then there should have $24-$25 million earnings; and at current price, the market cap is about $160 million. So it's a 6.7X P/E stock. And kids are going to buy toys regardless recession or not; so you won't expect revenues going to drop much; and can anyone dispute a lousy 4% profit margin assumption? Any business can make above that, if they are seriously in business.


    So just wait and watch those no brain shorts get killed.
