LONDON, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a report released by the Commerce Department last week, retail
sales in the U.S. rose 1.1% in February. The retail sales data beat
expectations and highlighted the improving outlook for the U.S. economy. The
data suggests that the improvement in labor and housing markets has boosted
consumer confidence and consumers are willing to spend. This augurs well for
apparel companies such as Limited Brands Inc. (NYSE: LTD), and American Eagle
Outfitters Inc. (NYSE: AEO), as well as for restaurant companies such as The
Wendy's Company (NASDAQ: WEN), and Yum! Brands Inc. (NYSE: YUM). All four
stocks ended lower on Monday, though, tracking losses in the broad market,
which fell amid concerns over the Eurozone. StockCall free coverage on LTD,
