A little while ago we fanned the rumor mill surrounding Quiksilver amid speculation they were being purchased by VF Corp. Well according to the all the particulars covered in the fourth quarter conference call, now DC seems the more obvious choice as far as companies being sold off is concerned. Of course, this is all internet speculation and my financial knowledge is laughable. All i know is, If i was a billion bucks in debt, I would be selling off everything I could (Rossignol doesn’t count, it cost Quiksilver $150million). Stay tuned.
