Morning Research on URBN, HOTT, EXPR, GES, and MW

StockCall.com Provides Stock Research on Urban Outfitters Inc., Hot Topic Inc., Express Inc., Guess' Inc., and The Men's Wearhouse Inc.

New York City, New York -- (May 14, 2013)

U.S. retail sales rose unexpectedly in April, a sign that consumer spending has remained strong despite the expiration of payroll tax cuts. According to the figures released by the Commerce Department, retail sales rose 0.1% in April, even as economists were expecting sales to slip 0.3%. The better-than-expected retail sales data highlights the fact that an improvement in the labor market has boosted consumer confidence. Retail sales could remain strong in the coming months if the labor market continues to recover. An improvement in retail sales is expected to benefit apparel stores operators such as Urban Outfitters Inc. (NASDAQ: URBN), Hot Topic Inc. (NASDAQ: HOTT), Express Inc. (NYSE: EXPR), Guess? Inc. (NYSE: GES), and The Men’s Wearhouse Inc. (NYSE: MW). Shares of apparel stores operators ended on a mixed note on Monday as the broad market struggled for direction.
