The first thing I look at

I find Shop-Eat-Surf to be a very useful and informative site that I enjoy browsing daily. Shop-Eat-Surf is the first thing I look at every morning to keep up-to-date on the latest talk, events, and happenings in the industry. I must say I am a fan of Shop-Eat-Surf.

Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Zumiez slashed its fourth quarter comp store and earnings projections yesterday after weak October sales. The company also said it expects 2009 to remain challenging, and is lowering its inventory commitments, slowing store growth and reducing capital expenditures in response.

October comp store sales: down 13.1 percent.

Comps in week 1: down 10.3 percent

Week two: down 11.8 percent

Week three: down 9.7 percent

Week four: down 20.4 percent (impacted by shift of a snow event from October to November)

Q3 earnings guidance: 22 cents to 23 cents per share, vs. 28 cents in Q3 2007.

Q4 comps guidance: down mid teens, lower than the negative low-single digits previously forecast.

FY earnings guidance: 52 cents to 57 cents per share, down from 80 cents to 82 cents previously forecast.

Balance sheet: The company expects to end the year with $75 million in cash and marketable securities and no debt.
