  • dunsek: #BBexpansions clothing- big move on earnings from $TJX, and from $CTRN ahead of earnings today. Home improvement: $AMWD blew the lid off its Bollinger Band, and $PIR made a nice move out of its band yesterday. Folks are buying clothes and stuff for the home. That's a good sign!

  • debeers: PIR-just before their last quarter report, all the members of the BOD bought sdditional stock in $PIR at 23.15-you can look it up--its in their filings. Here's the thing as I see it. Where is discretionary spending concentrated? I'll wait. Yes, that's right, the upper income stores.Also, since the Home Goods store which is part of $TJX is presciently opening its stores next to either a Trader Joes or a Whole Foods store, I don't see nearly the traffic at $PIR I used to see. Additionally, Cost + is eating PIR's lunch. Love the management but until lower income folks have more coin to burn, and with low hiring and stagnant wages, I don't see that happening any time soon, do you--I would not be in this one until they report after the first of next year.
  • woodman: $PIR - still working its way into the apex of the triangle as the sides continue to offer support and resistance. Getting kind of deep in there now.... Long PIR.
  • debeers: WHR-@Aragorn, big smoochies for getting me in on the proper buy point yesterday, BMO. Returning the favor: buy $PIR, it already got 2 analysts upgrades to 28 before their report!! Back to WHR-I remember the women in Oklahoma and New Jersey: One was s ...

  • debeers: $ROST v.PIR-@woody, here's a thought-if you listen to what has made the most money for $ROST its not clothes. Its their home furnishings and kitchen goods. So what if you had a $ROST but with 84% institutional support and grows at 18.58% with a p/e o ...

  • MissEllie: @jojo-oh, they would be, but she is too busy doing the happy dance on her $PIR holdings-awesome earnings this morning and she's been a buyer since the beginning of the year.
  • debeers: PIR/LULU/PCLN/TDG/WAB-allworking but $PIR up 3% ahead of Thursday's earnings.JOJO tell me you're not going to sell our gal LULU.The not so Spectacular $BID might finally not be stumbling out of the gate. At least she doesn't look washy and her Beyer figures on the wine auctions were outstanding.
  • debeers: PIR-reports Thurs and is worth a look IMHO.I hold this stock because on the 4 metrics important to me,it beats its closest rival,CPWM, on them all.1st: quarterly revenue growth: $PIR is 8.20 while CPWM is 6.70;2nd, Gross margins:PIR is 59.48/CPWM is 32.12;3rd,Operating margins:PIR is 9.13/CPWM is 3.32 and lastly,P/E-PIR is 18.94 vs CPWM at 25.04. Even a compare to the success story that is Macys is instructive: Macy's gross margin is 40.4, and operating margin is 9.04. Lastly, since the market isn't open, a personal wish to JAY,MISS E,JACKIE,@HENRY and JOJO ETHAN and FROG and all SMMers for a happy Easter and Passover.
  • Dr. Science: CPWM - Up 17.5% on earnings beat. Similar business as Pier One (PIR)... Looking at $PIR chart... steady uptrend and their earnings are 4/12 BMO. May be a trade there somewhere. Paper thin #options. Buy the stock. Gotta go!
  • debeers: $LULU Estimate .49sh/362.2mm revenue. Actual .51sh/371.5mm revenue. Echo JOJO. If commodities are down today, and the futures are looking that way, retail per se will benefit and not just my faves on the high end. The dollar stores should do ok as well. I favor $PIR which I will buy into any weakness as well as $KORS on the high end. The preference for American retail was highlighted on #Cramer last night and other than clothing. All Americas all the time should mean that $CMG and $BWLD go down less than most.
  • debeers: V/MA/PIR- several of the star analysts are now preferring $V over $MA because of the Europe exposure of MA. In reviewing the multinationals, almost all think that at least for the short term, more growth will be here which is a distinct shift. $V gets the nod from $CS and Argus over $MA for that reason. Thus a $CMG over a $MCD and the lovely little "housing is getting better play":PIR. Long $V and $PIR

  • debeers: GOOG-new price tgt from Baird $760. No complaints from me as I am long the stock, except Baird is not an ax on the stock (tbss).Elsewhere, for today at least in @debeers portfolio land-it would appear that burgers and smokes are not being consumed or charged(-MCD/-PM/-V) while folks are still watching TV and planning on voting+GOOG/+CBS and still, amazing as it may seem, still planning on feeding livestock and planting corn+CF.Since $PIR was up over 2% yesterday, it is taking a breather today. Don't ever add on an up day on this baby- you can always buy it on a down2% day.Have a great New Years everyone.

  • Markf: $PIR - Pier One has just hit the 50 ma as of last Friday. May take a entry position if it can produce a bounce. Found it with Dr. Science's (SMOKIN). Thanks Doc.
  • Darce: $DDS - Brwnilocks...not for today, but keep an eye on this set of stocks in Home Furnishings: $PIR, $BBBY, $WSM and KIRK. The 'sector' is consolidating currently. I really like the price action on the weekly chart for $PIR and $WSM, and they've done well over the past year, six months, three months and one month periods. It looks like both $WSM and $PIR could make significant moves in the near future...and that can be upward with the right conditions. I was in $WSM but bailed to put my money to work more productively in the short term, so I'm just watching right now.

  • Dannomon: $PIR - Well @nasada, this stock is on its fourth trip to this level and now it's weighted lower than the last times under the 100dma (i.e. it's further under its averages but not yet below its Bollinger band so it can still comfortably drop further). Also, money appears to be continuing its rotation out of retail now (witness XRT) so I'd be very leery of this one.
  • Darce: $BBBY - I spent some time this afternoon trying to understand this move. $PIR was up on positive earnings. $WSM and $BBBY took dives. Looking at $PIR, $BBBY and $WSM charts, it appears that $WSM was the weakest. $PIR and $BBBY could arguably be said to have pulled out of down trends. I could find no news to explain the plunge in $BBBY and $WSM today. I then compared them to the $XLY as a segment proxy. $XLY didn't do badly today...held the 50ema down .64%. The main negative I saw to the drop in $BBBY is that it took out the recent double bottom. However, it didn't take out the early May low. Anybody else have better wisdom?
  • indigo1948: $PIR - banjobox - I know some $PFI employees - big growth movement and they feel the spin off from CITI will bring about fairly rapid growth. My take is to wait until next week and see where the stock settles - I think 19+ is a little rich. I am going to look for an entry around 17 - 17.50 for a small starter position. My sense is that this company has very good growth potential.
  • slowtime: $PIR and $CLDX @Dan, what do you think of these two stocks which are trying to make a name for themselves. Thanks to Calla I have been picking up a few positions in CLDX. I know you don't care to comment on biotechs. Although two years ago, I lost a bundle on $AMGN, however I made it up by going long on $ONXX below 10. and selling at 25, and seeing it run without me to 60. I wish I had then known about you and SMM, then I would have ridden the $ONXX all the way. @slowtime
  • CallaLilly: "Junk longs" - mostly horrible companies such as $PIR that fell to ten cents at its March lows and rocketed to 2.10 at its June high. Overreactions at both ends of the trading range. Behavior that's more usual to a money-losing biotech that suddenly has a phase $III important drug and the stock does a $DNDN imitation. Not meaning to be totally esoteric ... the market is not unlike jazz with its own rhythm. I stopped hyper focusing on particular stocks and trying to poke my head out to look at the landscape. Because it makes sense to look for excellence (F, aapl, SKS) as well as to look for opportunities. I think ......
  • aliabassi1: I saw the upgrade in the morning and I contemplated.. I think there are bigger fish to fry ... the short interest in these retail stocks are driving them up, there is lil to no shorts on $PIR (2.2 days to cover according short #squeeze but thats from May 11th data) It think thats over - smart money will probably dive in when the personal spending numbers come out ... I wanted to get in simply because of the #squeeze but I don't think there are that many shorts in it
  • jb130: Nothing new about the penny (I call 'em silly) stocks moving. It is an old John Templeton trick to invest in that type stock at the depths of the market doldrums. I know little about fundies but I think the market is saying the companies that are still alive will be able to get financing. Myself, I don't care whether it is a "liquid/established" like MEE GMCR etc. or a "silly" stock like @DAN ALY $PIR HEB etc. I will do either type if they make money. I leave my precepts at the door and just listen to the charts. PS. It will be interesting to see if @DAN LEA and the other auto part companies give us a rebuy opportunity in the next couple days off the Baron's drive by
