Hope for American Eagle Outfitters

But it’s important not to rule American Eagle Outfitters (NYSE:AEO) out just yet. Wells Fargo recently downgraded the stock to market perform from outperform, citing management team actions that may help the company see substantial growth. In other words, instead of stirring up controversy through online interviews, American Eagle Outfitters (NYSE:AEO)’ head honchos have been busy retooling the company.
