    Old Navy;

    Gap is now facing many problems, but these problems can be considered as opportunities if Gap can find the true problem behind them.

    As part of its new growth strategy, Gap announced that it is shifting focus to a new strategy focused on its two growth brands: Old Navy and Athleta. The company expects net sales of more than $10 billion and $1 billion, respectively, at each of the brands over the next few years, with these gains coming as a result of U.S. store expansion and mobile and e- commerce growth. Additionally, the company plans to open 270 Old Navy and Athleta stores, while simultaneously closing 200 underperforming Gap and Banana Republic stores over the next three years.

    From the latest data, Gap's quarter revenue growth is 1.10%, but its profitability is declining.

    JP Morgan posted a $28 price target for The Gap, Inc.
    Finstead Research posted a $31.8 price target for The Gap, Inc.
    Barclays posted a $39 price target for The Gap, Inc.

    From CNBC, "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer sits down with The Gap Inc. President and CEO Art Peck after earnings for a glimpse at Gap's role in apparel retail. Peck says that leveraging big data capabilities gives his company a leg up versus its rivals.

    Gap was playing all the right cards at the time. Sales had grown from 3 billion dollars in 1992 to 13.7 billion dollars in 2000. But then it hit a roadblock. In the early 2000’s, Gap veered from its traditional business model to incorporate pricier fashion clothing items. However, style was not Gap’s forte. Other brands were at the forefront of fashion and had adapted their supply chain to sustain the fast-fashion business model.

    $GPS is being sued by $SPG for $66 million in rent. How much rent is owed to their other landlords? They won't able to get away with not paying rent. Then there's all of the unsold seasonal merchandise sitting in storage.

    the new collaboration with Yeezy has given speculators a glimmer. But that won't really help until the product is selling. This burst of hope helps. A day of sunshine through dark clouds. Immediate concerns of debt load and cash flow all but ignored, as day traders piled on. They company as a whole will take years to recover.
