In this video, Motley Fool Consumer Goods Analyst Blake Bos discusses the big pop recently in Abercrombie & Fitch (NYSE:ANF). After the company released earnings, shares jumped 40%. Bos, however, was not so impressed. He highlights lackluster domestic and negative international same-store sales, out-of-control SG&A costs, and share price over-valuation as reasons why this stock isn't as interesting as it may seem. He recommends that investors who are interested in the retail sector diversify into several places, and he offers a few suggestions.
