question cause Phoebe is way too smart to ask such a foolish reflection of a question. Your answer lies in the Yahoo! news under ANF, read this back from about the 1st of October '99. Anything before hand was truely sector-related and out of A&F's hands (truthfully GSP screwed the pooch in July and hurt everyone in this sector). If you develope any specific questions after your reading bring those to the board. You owe it to yourself to do your own research, and gain a better understanding of this company or any other for that matter before you invest.
