    Soaring? In what universe?

    Granted, shares ARE up from the $1.90+ that was hit back in the 1st part of December. However, this company is far from out of the woods. The past 2 CEOs totally and absolutely TANKED this company with absolute mismanagement. Day put it in the toilet and Gooch flushed it. IF this company has a chance at revival, it'll be because Magnacca has actual experience in retail and merchandising. The company FINALLY has some people in place that has ACTUAL retail experience as well instead the failures brought in by the previous regime.

    IF RSH is to survive, they will need to get back to their roots and relearn how to compete with experience, customer service, merchandise, and comparative pricing. They had 3 out of the 4 before Day/Gooch. Now Magnacca has got to rebuild the company to have it again.
