    • Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF -0.7%) is downgraded to Sell from Hold with a $13 price target, trimmed from $14, at Deutsche Bank, which says earnings results will come in below expectations in the coming year as the Abercrombie brand turnaround has yet to gain traction.
    • "We see a prolonged recovery for [ANF] reflecting the competitive environment, merchandise miscues and tourism headwinds," Deutsche Bank analyst Tiffany Kanaga wrote in a note titled "Pre-Thanksgiving Rally Full of Stuffing, Not Meat"
    • "Without ANF participating in the perceived industry inflection, and without visibility as to when it might see a lessening or reversal of tourist and international challenges, we lack the key catalyst necessary to drive better comps," according to Kanaga.

    • A survey from William Blair indicates that teenagers and young adults have increased their visits to malls this year to reverse a multi-year trend.
    • In what may come as a surprise, teens ranked malls above movie theaters, restaurants, and sports clubs/extracurriculars as their most popular place to meet.
    • Despite the depressed levels of overall sales this year for mall retailers, the read on teens could be a possible indicator that the mall model will evolve and survive, instead of disappear.
    • "While overall mall traffic remains challenging, our survey this year noted a material increase in the number of respondents who indicated they are visiting malls more often than last year, perhaps suggesting that malls’ efforts to increase relevancy (through more experiential brands and the addition of attractive entertainment and dining options) are beginning to bear fruit," says Bernstein analyst Sharon Zackfia.
