One of the outperforming names in today's market was casual clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF - 27-3/8
), which tacked on more than 15 percent by day's end to move back above its 10-week moving average. This morning, the stock was upgraded by a major Wall Street brokerage firm, who cited the improving sales of women's clothing as the reason for this positive mention. Although today's rally in the shares was impressive, ANF is not yet out of the proverbial woods just yet, as it remains below its 10-month moving average. Additionally, the stock is trading below its short-term 10- and 20-day moving averages, which are on the verge of a bearish crossover.
