Is Abercrombie's CEO Killing His Own Company?

The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Matt Koppenheffer, discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Abercrombie & Fitch (NYSE: ANF  ) rose this morning after getting upgraded. Shares of the retailer have lagged the market in recent years. In the past, Abercombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries has said that the company wants to be exclusionary and go after "the cool kids." And the retailer doesn't offer XL sizes in women's clothing. Does that strategy make sense for investors? In this installment of MarketFoolery, our analysts talk about the business of cool and the future of Abercrombie & Fitch.
