LONDON, April 11, 2013

LONDON, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The Commerce Department will release its retail sales data for the month of
March on Friday. Retail sales rose in the first two months of 2013 despite the
expiration of payroll tax cuts at the start of the year. The main driver for
retail sales growth has been an improvement in labor market. However, March's
non-farm payrolls data suggests that the labor market did not make any
significant progress last month. Expectations for March retail sales,
therefore, are quite low. Apparel stores such as Urban Outfitters Inc.
(NASDAQ: URBN), Express Inc. (NYSE: EXPR), Hot Topic Inc. (NASDAQ: HOTT),
Guess? Inc. (NYSE: GES), and The Men's Wearhouse Inc. (NYSE: MW) will be
hoping that March's disappointing jobs report was a one-off and that the
recovery in the labor market will continue. Shares of all five companies edged
higher on Wednesday, tracking gains in the broad market. StockCall has taken
