CPY - CPI Corp.
« on: July 13, 2011, 12:15:14 PM »
Intro to write up:
CPI Corp. (CPY) operates over 3,000 portrait photography studios, mainly in Wal-Mart, Sears, and Kids Rí Us stores. The industry appears to be in secular decline and CPY has made some questionable operating decisions, but the business model is fundamentally attractive. CPY enjoys a clear market leading position and has employed admirable capital allocation in the last several years. I think it is worth a closer look.

Rest is here:

I think it is tempting, but not a buy right now because no idea about rate of revenue decline going forward. Any thoughts?
