Teen retailers on watch after Sycamore Partners bet

|By:, SA News Editor

A sizable bet by Sycamore Partners in struggling teen retailer Aeropostale (ARO) could be enough to give the beat-up sector a second look by investors.

The activist investor group isn't expected to be the quiet-type at Aeropostale.

On watch: AEO, ZUMZ, ANF, BKE, TLYS.

ARO +14.4% premarket to $9.83.
