Strength Seen in Aeropostale (ARO): Stock Soars 23.9% - Tale of the Tape

Zacks Equity Research

Aeropostale, Inc. (ARO) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 24% on the day. The upside came after the company pared down its losses during the holiday season. This led to more shares changing hands than in a normal session. The stock picked up sharply from the near-flat trend of $2.20 to $2.40 in the past one-month time frame.


The company has seen no estimate revisions in the past 30 days, while its Zacks Consensus Estimate moved lower over the same time frame, suggesting trouble down the road. So make sure to keep an eye on this stock going forward to see if this recent move higher can last.


Aeropostale currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is negative.


A better-ranked stock in the retail sector is Shoe Carnival Inc. (SCVL) sporting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
