New York, NY – GDP INSIDER – 03/11/2015.
This article discusses three companies: Abercrombie & Fitch Co.(NYSE:ANF), Urban Outfitters, Inc.(NASDAQ:URBN) and Express, Inc.(NYSE:EXPR)
Abercrombie & Fitch Co.(NYSE:ANF) continued to recover yesterday with the stock closing up 1.40% or $0.29 at $21.01, with 4.573 million shares changing hands compared to its three month average trading volume of 2.876 million. The stock has been in freefall with its value down 26.64% year to date and 48.26% over the last 52 weeks. With its teen target market deserting the brand, the company has been struggling with its image and has the below-average performance so far this year in the clothing apparel sector. Without a significant strategic shift, it is best to keep away.
Urban Outfitters, Inc.(NASDAQ:URBN) continued to rise with the stock climbing 11.52% or $4.55 yesterday, to close at $44.06 on very high trading volume of 11.104 million shares. The current climb comes on the back of very positive fourth quarter and full year financial results, which show a 4% gain in sales for the first time in four quarters. Urban Outfitters Inc is now in the top five performers in the sector so far this year with the stock up 25.42%, but with RSI of 85.58, a hold rather than a buy at the moment.
Express, Inc.(NYSE:EXPR) rose 6.10% or $0.86 yesterday, to close at $14.95 on very active trading of 4.749 million shares compared to its three month average of 1.295 million. The stock has been on a rollercoaster ride over the last six months with the stock trading between $12.50 and $17.18. Overall, its performance is average for the sector, with a year to date share price increase of 1.77%. With Express Inc due to release its fourth quarter and full year financial report before the bell this morning, it is best to hold for now.
