Very interesting article! Thanks! By the way, a lot of people are anxiously awaiting the Droid release date. No, this doesn't mean that the Star Wars films are coming true – so get off it already. The Droid release date is over the new, hot, smart phone from Verizon that's directly calling out Apple and the iPhone. The phone, manufactured by Motorola, has an ad campaign directly attacking the iPhone's faults with a cheeky commercial stating "iDon't" whatever the iPhone can't do. Granted, it was kind of clever, and it will work – as soon as the new hot phone comes out, Pavlov's Geeks start drooling. A lot of people will get a loan until payday to buy one once the Droid release date is announced.

Still, A&F as in other whipsawed industries, a few survivors stand to abercrombie benefit from the widespread pain.

Then I researched earnings abercrombie & fitch reports and other sources to separate firms with strong inherent growth from those benefiting from mergers, abercrombie Jeans accounting anomalies, or one-time events.
