I wish I was lucky as many folks here but it was my fault in thinking that appareal?softgoods and retail in general are short cycle so I never purchased COH . But recently (after COH opened first flagship store in Shibuya)my wife and our relatives in Japan started buying COH products... From this point on I became more and more interested in COH business strategy and their method of producing the products for various stores. We have beautiful COH store opened two years ago in South Coast Plaza and I was so impressed for their ability show colorful youth looking flare with original more mature style quietly presented for mature customers.First impact I received was happy youthful power that showered all over my senses. I am pleased to join COH holders from health care andd high tech holding. Recently about year ago I divested 75 % of PFE shares I received as R&D incentive stock option doing my career time from Pfizer . Big Phams became target of political game that basically killed favored industry as all season investment vehicle.
i agree the south coast plaza store is very nice .living in diamond bar i usually go to the brea mall store . i wouldn't get to concerned about the day to day in COH . the management has proven itself time and time again . good luck .
