Has had a huge run and is not sure he would be courageous enough to get onboard at this point. Management has done a remarkable job of building this. He would look for a little lower entry point.

They’ve done a great job, but it may be hard to create profitability. It is a challenge that they may not exist in 10 years. You could enter if it got to liquidation value.

Like many other book retailers, this is in a very challenged industry. People are ordering books online, getting free content online, downloading books and magazines on to iPads. Nice dividend of about 4%. Wouldn’t Short because of the dividend.

Stuck in a very tough business environment. Being affected by online businesses or you can now get books. Also a lot of tablets, where you can get online books, will make it tough for them. They were a large owner of Kobo, which was just sold so they should net $70 million-$80 million free cash which should help them sustain the dividend.

Books are not a sustainable business. How does a traditional bookseller capitalized on current trends. Electronic books are taking over. Dividend is not safe and secure.

Advent of digital books and e-readers is an opportunity for them. Near-term earnings are going down a bit as they put money towards the electronic initiative. Earnings were down 21% year-over-year and coming quarter expected to be up 6%. Earnings expected to slip from $1.22 in 09 to $1.17 in 10 and forecasting 15% growth in 2011. 11X PE.
