Aeropostale, Inc. (ARO), The Gap Inc. (GPS), American Eagle Outfitters (AEO): Who Needs A Turnaround?

Page 2 of 2

I think that the Aeropostale turnaround is still too early to call. The company has an earnings call at the end of the month, and before I get overly excited, I’ll be looking for some growth in the company’s comparable sales. Right now, the stock is trading at a P/E of 38, which seems incredibly expensive for a company that hasn’t proven itself yet. While good things may be around the corner, the corner is still a long way off.
