Did the cold weather come fast enough to help Deckers Outdoor (DECK) and V.F. Corp. (VFC)? Judging by the two trajectories it would seem that North Face is blowing out the doors, but Uggs are simply stalled.
I think the cold weather matters tremendously to both companies and that V.F. has become a little stretched. Deckers, however, had a lot of the expectations wrung from it on that last conference call and therefore might be the safer bet.
Plus, remember, Deckers has a lot more going for it these days, including a fast-selling running shoe that's being praised by the weak-kneed and a yoga shoe that reminds me of Reebok during the early aerobics days.
I say you take a hard look at Deckers. It seems right ahead of the vortex that's rolling through the country.
