Confident Investor comments: At this price and at this time, I think that a Confident Investor can confidently invest in this stock. This stock is currently way undervalued, in my opinion. Even the price target that I have currently picked ($12.42) is probably too low. 6 months ago it was trading over $24 and 3 months ago it was over $17. I realize that there is some concern about the Christmas season and I tried to factor that into my price target but this is a much better company than its short-term stock price is showing.
