Mall retailer stocks get moving in the right direction

|By:, SA News Editor

Some out-of-favor teen retailers are staging a comeback of sorts today - led by Aeropostale (ARO +7.1%), Wet Seal (WTSL +3.9%), and Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF +3.3%). Tilly's (TLYS +3.6%) and Buckle (BKE +2.3%) are also in on the action.

There are some channel checks out indicating a pick-up in traffic at malls, although today's move looks to be led by momentum.

The rush back into mall some retailers is helping to give a lift to the S&P Retail ETF (XRT).
