After the Crash, Is It Game Over for Coach?

Coach (NYSE: COH  ) came out this morning and revealed that it had a "challenging" holiday quarter. Despite undeniable weakness in today's numbers, the knee-jerk reaction from the market feels a bit excessive. Coach's headaches seem much more the product of a weak retail environment than evidence of any sort of company deficiency.

Yet there is no denying that it's a tough time to be a luxury retailer. Coach may not deserve this sell-off, but that may not make it a buy today. If you're looking for something a bit safer in today's environment, you might want to check out the stock that The Motley Fool's chief investment officer has selected as his No. 1 stock for the next year.

    I do kind of agree with this opinion, but there's one thing I would have wanted to hear more about: Coach's admission that they're facing more competition.

    3% miss on EPS. 18% hit on the shares. Seems proportional and rational to me

    Increased my COH position by 66% today. I think this brand is stronger than people give it credit for, and that COH is a solid LT buy. Only time will tell.
