IBD has agreat article on Catherine's in the July 7, 1999 issue. Store launched a "body basics" program that identifies 5 basic body shapes and clothes styles that flatter each shape. Same store sales climbed 8.9% in fiscal 1999 ended Jan. 31 and 6% in first quarter of fiscal 2000. Earnings jumped 41% to 48 cents a share. Total sales grew 5%. Analysts expect earnings to rise 23% to $1.27 a share in fiscal 2000 and 8% to $1.37 in 2001 (First Call). Keeping my eye on this one. Just bought Braun's Fashions and so far have had good luck with it. IBD reported retail sales on the rise. Might be the place to be for the short term.Woody
