Timing:  Bought near 52 week low.
Reason:  The company is profitable and has an attractive P/E multiple. A&F has a strong brand name and has avoided the deep discounting common in the industry.

Reason:  Shares increased substantially after holiday season sales were announced. However, we believed that sales would not grow substantially in early 2003, so price was unlikely to appreciate in the near future.
