Retail Winners & Losers: Aeropostale, Men's Wearhouse

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Retail stocks are moving wildly following April same-store sales results and earnings reports.

Aeropostale (ARO - Get Report) is one of the biggest decliners, after the teen retailer lowered its first-quarter outlook.

The teen retailer said on Thursday that its same-store sales during the quarter declined at least 7% compared with an 8% increase in the year prior. Aeropostale was forced to increase its promotional levels in order to move spring and clearance merchandise.
