Webb, who broke Jim Ryun's 36 year old high school mile record two years ago, has also never competed in a road race. He will do so for the first time today in the 67th Manchester Road Race. Webb has actually run a few road races, but never raced. He ran the 4.748 mile course Wednesday and liked what he saw. Two years ago, Webb was already a high school running phenom. But onMay 27, 2001, his fame eclipsed the sport. As a senior at South Lakes High in Reston, Va., he ran the Bowerman Mile at the Prefontaine Classic in 3 minutes, 53.43 seconds, breaking Ryun's historic 3:55.3. A few months earlier, Webb had become the first high school miler to break 4 minutes indoors (3:59.86). At age 18, he was already a legend in the making, the future of American running, the next Jim Ryun. Webb decided to run at the University of Michigan. He was so popular they began to charge admission for track meets. One day a week was set aside for interviews. But Webb never felt comfortable. He had thought about running professionally after high school, but decided to give college running a try. Even though he was the Big Ten cross country champion, finished 11th at nationals and won the Big Ten 1,500 meter title, his first year didn't go as well as expected. He sat out the indoor season with an Achilles' injury. In June 2002, he went home to Reston and his high school coach, Scott Raczko. He decided to stay. "I finally feel like I'm trying to settle down and move on with life," Webb said. His disappointing year at Michigan and his decision to leave coupled with Nike's unprecedented contract, designed to appeal to the teen running market prompted criticism. Webb wants to run in the Olympics next year, but has yet to meet the A standard 1,500 qualifying time. "It's just the way things go in the world," Webb said. "A lot of times, critics speak the truth. I can't say it doesn't bother me. It would bother anybody, whether they would admit it or not. I don't dwell on it. "Whether or not you think I'm the greatest runner in the world, or the crappiest runner in the world, it makes no difference because I'm still going to run what I'm going to run. Obviously, felt I was doing something right." Webb is taking classes as a sophomore at George Mason, but his NCAA career is over now that he is a professional. Right now, he's laying a training base for next season. "He's putting in a lot of mileage right now," Raczko said Wednesday. "He's doing a lot of cross training, a lot of strength training. It's going to be a pretty lengthy year next year. We're looking at not gearing up for competition until the summer. He needs a big strength phase to be able to sustain it. Ray Flynn, Webb's agent, is also the agent for Amy Rudolph who will be competing for her sixth Manchester title today. Flynn encouraged Webb to enter. "We were looking for something around this distance, a little strength race," Raczko said. "We heard great things about the event and it fit into our workout cycles."

(NYSE:ANN) is a specialty retailer serving the needs of women for more than fifty years. The company meets the needs of women by providing quality suits, separates, dresses, shoes and accessories. The company operates the Ann Taylor and Loft brands through 947 stores in 46 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Products are also available online. The Ann Taylor brand operates online and at 272 stores. Its target category is called the "better" priced category. The Loft brand has 501 store locations and competes in the "upper moderate" priced category. There are also 169 Ann Taylor Factory and Loft Outlet stores. RevenuesThe second quarter of fiscal 2013 ended July 28, 2012. Sales in this quarter were up 6.6% to $594.9 million. The Ann Taylor brand was up a total of 5.6% across sales channels. Ann Taylor stores were up 3.2; Ann Taylor online sales increased 29.0% and the Ann Taylor Factory outlet group was up 2.1%. The overall increase for the Loft brand was 4.2%. The stores grew by 4.1%; the online store saw an increase of 14.6% and the Outlet was up 0.3%. For the twelve month period ending with 2Q13, sales grew about 8.7% to $2,286.0 million as compared to the year earlier period. Full year F2013 revenue estimates are from $2,211.41 million to $2,224.00 million with an average estimate of $2,213.24 million. Looking out to F2014, analysts see revenue growing. The estimates range from $2,381.18 million to $2,403.85 million and average $2,388.56 million. EarningsDiluted earnings per share for 2Q12 were $0.63 as compared to $0.47 a year earlier. For the twelve month period, diluted EPS was $1.86 compared to $1.53 or 22.4% higher year over year. The company attributes the higher EPS to several factors including fewer full store promotions and more category specific and targeted promotions, an aggressive approach to managing costs, higher net sales and a decrease in sales, general and administrative costs as a percent of sales. Analysts had been forecasting second quarter earnings of about $0.51 so the actual EPS came as a 24% surprise. Going forward, analysts estimate that full year F2013 EPS will be in the $2.10 to $2.30 range and the consensus estimate is $2.20. Analysts see growth continuing into F2014 with EPS ranging from $2.37 to $2.70 and averaging $2.53 per share. MarginsOperating margins in 2Q13 were 6.9% as compared to 6.8% for the trailing twelve months and 6.6% for F2012. The company reported net margins of 5.1% for 2Q13, an improvement over the 4.1% for the trailing twelve months and the 3.8% reported for F2012. For the quarter, inventory grew only 3.7% whereas sales grew by 6.6%. This is an indication that the company managed its inventory well. Another metric to consider is inventory to sales. At the end of 2Q13, the inventory to sales ratio was 9.7%, virtually unchanged for year ending 2012 at 9.6%. Balance SheetThe company has a very strong balance sheet with no long term debt and cash and short term investments of $132.7 million. Ann carries no goodwill or intangibles on its balance sheet. On an historical basis, the balance sheet shows no use of "non recurring" items and few adjustments. The company does not pay a dividend. ProfitabilityThe company is solidly profitable with return on equity of 24.1% compared to the industry median of 15.4%. The five year average ROE is 1.7% due to a big loss in 2009. We confirm the quality of earnings by looking at free cash flow and related metrics. On a TTM basis, free cash flow totals $2.64 per share compared to diluted EPS of $1.86. We also see that free cash has been growing for each of the past three years. We find that ANN has a cash flow to invested capital ratio of 34.06% which is an indication of the company's strength and profitability on a cash basis. Capital AllocationIf ANN has a strike against it, it is because the company does not pay a dividend. However, the company does have a share buyback program. During the quarter, the company repurchased 1.6 million shares on the open market and during the six months ended July 30, 2012, the company repurchased 3.1 million shares on the open market. For the quarter, this share buyback provided the shareholder a yield of 7.2%. ValuationWe present here several popular valuation metrics. On a PE basis, ANN is currently trading at a premium to the market. Looking at the company's forward PE of 16.2X and the estimated long term growth rate, we get a PEG ratio of 1.27X; not exactly a bargain but not screamingly over priced either. The price/sales ratio is a reliable metric. With a PSR of 0.74X and the industry median of 0.70X, the company looks fairly priced. On a price to book basis, at 4.60X, the company looks overpriced. We favor looking at enterprise value based metrics as they take into consideration the company's capital structure. ANN has an EV/free cash ratio of 9.21X, which is well below the industry median of 12.39X. The EV/sales ratio for ANN is 0.51X compared to the industry median of 0.65X. EBITDA is a commonly used surrogate for cash flow. ANN is trading at an EV/EBITDA multiple of 7.43X, whereas the industry median is 9.9X. ConclusionAnn Taylor is a profitable, well managed company. The pros include that it has no long term debt, is solidly profitable and has a strong cash flow stream. Another big plus is that it has a share buyback program in place and has actively repurchased shares on the open market. This is a shareholder friendly action for a company with adequate cash flow to support the program. If growth materializes as the analysts forecast, we think ANN can support an EV/EBITDA multiple of 9.12X. The share price of ANN has been trending higher all year and the price has been hitting new highs. The shares made a big jump when the quarterly earnings report was released. If we are right, the share price of ANN has about 22% 23% upside before becoming fairly valued. Disclosure: I have a LONG position in ANN.
