Interesting to follow. Pretty clueless about what will happen. End ASAP.

Aeropostale dropped 7.5% on the week, reaching prices not seen in more than a decade. The retailer hasn't been able to pull out of its recent dive as it still reels from poor earnings results that pointed to a rising likelihood of all-out collapse. Aeropostale's operating losses have grown as it reported a 15% drop in same-store sales as well as margin-crushing promotional discounting activity. Although Aeropostale managed to draw interest from private-equity firm Sycamore Partners, its financial assistance came in the form of a loan rather than a purchase of equity, and that suggests that expert investors are positioning themselves for the possibility of a restructuring at some point in the future.

Teen retail... too much competition and too fickle of customers.

Higher SG&A, Lower Margins and the costs of closing stores all ensure that this stock will most likely do nothing and stagnant for at least the next few years. This could be a prime target for private equity investors as well.

Don't catch falling knifes unless you are a trained professional.

You might get cut.

Hard to kick a dog when it's down so much, but I'll try. Mall store. Malls are dying. Huge losses backward and forward. May climb back in a year. $6 here we come.

Q3 numbers were bad, but I like the value now. I generally don't like stocks with negative profits, but ARO has a history of profitability, very low price to sales, low debt, and better revenue than companies with twice its market cap. And, we're coming into profitable season for clothing retailers, so I think there's at least a 20% upside

They have the free cash to react to next spring market. They will do good in slow recovery

There is fundamentally nothing wrong with this company and it sits at the bottom of it's trading range. There is a pattern to this stock: every Fall the stock price increases until Spring of the following year.

Aero continues to rise in popularity. I feel like it is a trend setting company and will continue to become better and better.

Looking at the 2Y History, it looks like ARO is having a pretty steady climb upward for a good kick start to the new year.

Undervalued. $1.2 Billion Market Cap with $400M assets and ~$380M annual earnings.

Growing - Cheap copycat styles for kids/teens are only going to see growth in sales

Competitive Advantage? Not much other than price and ability to quickly mimic higher priced competitors

Management - Like the fact they are buying stock back at low levels.

Caters to a high demand market that spends. Employees are typically members of the Aro target market--employees give (low) wages back to Aro in exchange for "Aro cool" high ROI clothing.
