<<I can't help but tell you next time listen to advice and then do your own homework when your Mom has a hot tip.>>

I did some homework before I bought (and I always listen to my Mom). I'm not planning to buy more for a couple of reasons. First, what a company has done in the past is not always an indicator of the future. Personally, I don't think the company can continue the growth they had in the past. Same Store Sales haven't been impressive lately. One of the biggest reasons I'm not buying more comes from personal experience. I was in Omaha a year or two ago after I had already bought the stock (there isn't a Buckle here in Virgina). I went shopping with my wife, our youngest daughter (a teen) and a neice (another teen). We spent money (mostly my money) in the Gap, A&F, and Old Navy. We went in the Buckle in the Westroads but didn't buy. I'm not saying these two teen girls are representative of all teens, but it made an impression on me. I hope the numbers work out the way you see them, I'm just not ready to put any more money in the company at this time.
