News overnight of private equity firm Apollo Management submitting a proposal to buy a stake in jewelry company Zale (ZLC) spurred us to buy shares today in the pre-market at 2.27/ share. Here's why:

 

  • Money from the private equity firm will keep this stock afloat, giving vendors confidence (and maybe consumers, too.)
  • Apollo working with prior management might help boost Zale.
  • Potential competitive bidders might well raise the share price.
  • Competitors' businesses are turning around, so perhaps with some changes Zales can finally follow suit.
