(NASDAQ: PSUN) and American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. (NYSE: AEO). Full fundamental and technical analysis is available at www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com/Reports.php.

Due to a weakened economy and higher unemployment rates, lackluster discretionary income growth could cause irritability in the apparel and accessories demand. Accessories and differentiated fashion continue to outperform the category, but at a slower pace. Strong luxury brands are estimated to rebound extending throughout 2011, reflecting core luxury shoppers. Initial markups have expanded modestly as retailers' ability to source goods at lower prices has improved. Information technology has enabled retailers to apply science to markdowns, resulting in improved merchandise margins. It is believed that companies with strong brands, differentiated products, superior customer service and attractive price-value propositions are likely to outperform their peers.
