True Religion Shares Popped: What You Need to Know

Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.

What: Shares of fashionista retailer True Religion (Nasdaq: TRLG  ) soared as much as 16% on a down day for the market after reporting second-quarter results that blew away estimates.

So what: Revenue rose 20% to $98.3 million while profit soared 30% to $0.38 a share. Analysts had been looking for $91.5 million and $0.34 a share, respectively, marking the second consecutive quarter in which True Religion has made Wall Street look silly.

Now what: Foolish colleague Sean Williams sees the report as confirming of a sustainable edge for the denim diva. "Is True Religion a bargain relative to its peers? I think the answer is still yes, even with [the stock] nearing its all-time high," he wrote earlier today. Do you agree? Disagree?

    Will be holding my shares for now. One thing i'm worried about is seeing their sneakers on sale at places like Journey's. They appear to be converse clones, and are sometimes selling at discounts of 60% off. Requires further investigation imho.
