    Analysts are weighing in today on beauty products peddler Jumei International Holding Ltd (ADR) (NYSE:JMEI), medical device manufacturer Rewalk Robotics Ltd (NASDAQ:RWLK), and apparel retailer Aeropostale Inc (NYSE:ARO). Here's a quick roundup of today's brokerage notes on JMEI, RWLK, and ARO.

    • JMEI is getting crushed around midday, as traders disregard the company's first-quarter earnings beat and a pair of bullish brokerage notes. Specifically, Macquarie upgraded the stock to "outperform" from "neutral," and Piper Jaffray lifted its price target to $25 from $16. At last check, Jumei International Holding Ltd was 6.4% lower at $26.25 -- but has still roughly doubled on a year-to-date basis. This is bad news for a recent crop of call buyers. During the past two weeks at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), JMEI has amassed a call/put volume ratio of 9.19 -- higher than 78% of comparable readings from the past year.

    • On the other hand, RWLK is erupting on the heels of an upbeat note from Canaccord Genuity -- which raised its assessment of the stock to "buy" from "hold," and its price target to $17 from $11. However, despite the shares 16.6% surge to trade at $12.90, they remain 31.7% lower year-to-date -- and earlier ran up against resistance at their 80-day moving average, currently located at $13.99. Short sellers are likely feeling the heat, as nearly 13% of Rewalk Robotics Ltd's float is sold short -- which would take more than a week to repurchase, at the equity's typical daily trading levels.

    • Finally, ARO is taking it on the chin, down 13.2% at $2.25 -- bringing the shares into negative year-to-date territory. The selling pressure comes courtesy of weaker-than-expected first-quarter results and disappointing current-quarter guidance, as well as a subsequent round of bearish analyst attention. Specifically, no fewer than seven brokerage firms reduced their price targets on Aeropostale Inc, with Topeka Capital and UBS trimming their targets to $2.25. Meanwhile, SunTrust Robinson cut its price target to $2.50, saying it continues "to be concerned that the brand is substantially less relevant." Traders have been betting bearishly on the equity for some time now. ARO's 50-day ISE/CBOE/PHLX put/call volume ratio stands at an annual high of 0.50.
