I own a specialty retail store. As a matter of principle I will not buy stocks of retail companies as they are in the business of selling real stock to me. Material stock. Stock on the shelves. Stock that if it is good stock, I can sell at a profit on a day to day basis. Not the BS paper stock most people here deal with every day So any thoughts I post here come from an ordinary retail businessman, not an analyst, not a stockbroker, not a portfolio manager. Just a real "Mom and Pop" business owner. I worked in financial services for a while and hated it. It is much better to be in tangible retail sales, at least for me.
