Analysts: Aeropostale May Have Margin Concerns and 3 Other Research Notes to Explore

Aeropostale (NYSE:ARO):┬áMaxim lowered its price target for Aeropostale shares to $9 from $14, citing ongoing margin concerns, and the firm keeps a Hold rating on the stock. Regarding Sycamore’s 7.96 percent stake disclosed yesterday, Maxim said that it does not believe the private equity firm is looking to take Aeropostale private, but does believe “there is a potential end game for the investors.” Given Sycamore’s controlling interest in Mast Global Fashions, Maxim says that Aeropostale could be more valuable as a strategic asset to the private equity firm than to individual investors.
