Then, Castro took over and took him in, they beat him up for about eight hours and asked if he was going to join the regime. He said no.

That's the greatness of this country.
The stock has been under a lot of pressure, so I am trying to pick a bottom. But I think it's oversold. There are questions about the higher Swiss franc. I think it'll make some of the competitor products more expensive. Having said that, I know it's a higher risk than normal. For the most part, I don't mind giving up two points for the upside, but in this particular case, if someone wants to build a position here, I think Movado might be the stock to buy and hold six months to a year.DISCLOSURES
