Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star JohnCLeven, succinctly summed up the Guess? bull case for our community:

Yes, clothing is not exactly the most profitable business, and yes [Guess?'s] growth has been slowing, but with the sky high [return on capital], very low valuation, and two managers [whose] interests are uncommonly aligned with shareholders ... I'm going to pick [Guess?] anyway. Add in the 3% dividend yield, and the fact that [Guess?] is selling for a slight 6% discount to their Graham Number which is around $28 … and I think you have a pretty solid long-term pick.
