The stock is trading a little bit better this morning I would point out gap has really act like you did despite many of the continued worries it's been a big turnaround name under Glenn Murphy chairman and CEO back from a pay back in the 90's when Mickey Drexler was at the helm. Many analysts are worried that the color momentum from a year ago is waning, along with some other benefit there at the from JC Penney's woes rather, but you know trends are generally strong they pointed to a little bit of uncertainty in the holiday quarter coming up but it's a well-positioned name here in the stock is trading up slightly now well-being of last night.

Yeah the Fresh Market was in focus particularly after Whole Foods disappointing quarter a lot of question marks over competition and pricing as we're seeing a lot in new organic means come out not to mention names like Costco in Kroger picking up this theme. It was just the disappointing quarter not only com which were 3.1 percent sequential the fella region, but also new stores productivity not so great in a big part in the story the new store grab excuse me new store growth so we'll have to be a taking a closer look here even though the stock down 14 percent
