LONDON, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a report released by the Commerce Department last week, retail
sales in the U.S. fell 0.4% in March. The disappointing retail sales data
highlights the fact that consumer confidence in the U.S. is still fragile.
With March's jobs report showing only 88,000 job additions, consumers are
expected to scale back spending in the next few months. This does not augur
well for apparel stores such as American Eagle Outfitters (NYSE: AEO), L
Brands Inc. (NYSE: LTD), Chico's FAS Inc. (NYSE: CHS), and The Wet Seal Inc.
(NASDAQ: WTSL). Shares of apparel stores companies ended mostly lower on
Wednesday, tracking losses in the broad market. StockCall has taken an
