Crocs: Value Play or Value Trap?

The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money radio show, featuring host Chris Hill along with analysts Joe Magyer, Ron Gross, and James Early. In this segment, the focus is on Crocs (NAS: CROX) , which reported weak Q3 earnings and saw shares plummet 20% as a result. The guys discuss Crocs' expansion of its shoe line beyond rubber clogs, and analyze whether the discounted stock is now a value play or a value trap.

Whether individual retail stocks are up today or down tomorrow, there's no denying that in the long-term, this sector is in the midst of the biggest paradigm shift since mail-order took off at the turn of the last century. Only the most forward-looking and capable companies will survive, and those investors who understand the landscape will be handsomely rewarded.
