The path to profitability is clear to us as we are now, for the first time in three years, projecting earnings (not losses) per share for CBK. We note that management is already showing signs of prudent, thoughtful growth initiatives in opening outlet stores, focusing on e-commerce, and investing more payroll into stores."
