  • American Eagle Rated "Market Perform" at FBR Capital (AEO)

    Analysts at FBR Capital started coverage on American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) early on Wednesday, giving the fashion retailer a tepid rating due to the stock's high valuation. The analysts rate AEO as "Market Perform" and see shares reaching $15. This price target suggests a slight upside to the stock's Tuesday closing price of $14.07. "AEO has recently been the victim of weak mall traffic, which has been exacerbated by product mix issues at the company," FBR Capital analyst Susan Anderson noted. "We believe that AEO is one of the best-run teen retailers and that its initiatives could be positive for the company in the longer term. These initiatives include (1) global expansion, (2) expanding and repositioning the aerie brand, (3) opening outlet stores and selling made-for-outlet product, and (4) expanding direct-to-consumer and omni-channel retailing. The stock has experienced a significant decline recently (–30% versus +19% for the S&P 500 year to date), but we believe valuation is still a bit high, particularly when compared with stronger players such as GPS (consensus FY2 P/E of 12.4x versus 13.2x for GPS and 13.2x for EXPR) and given the challenges the company is facing. We would become more positive on the stock at a more attractive valuation or once it is clear that the company can successfully reignite its brand and prove consistency in its SSS and margins." American Eagle shares were down 7 cents, or 0.50%, during pre-market trading on Wednesday. The stock is down 31.4% year-to-date.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of American Eagle (AEO) offer a dividend yield of 3.55% based on Tuesday's closing price of $14.07 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 50 cents per share. American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.1 out of 5 stars.
