    Abercrombie gets the distinction of having the worst CEO and losing the most customers. Teens hate the brand; they even boycott it. Stars refuse to wear Abercrombie, and the Hollister brand is the exact same thing. When the dividend is suspended, the stock is going to crash to mid 20's and then fall all the way to Radio Shack levels. Maybe Abercrombie should start selling cell phones and diodes.
