Abercrombie (ANF) and American Eagle (AEO) downgraded to Peer Perform from Outperform at Wolfe Research. 3.

Abercrombie & Fitch downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Tiffany Kanaga downgraded Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) to Sell saying the Abercrombie brand turnaround is yet to gain traction.
