New Stock Coverage: The Check Is in the Mail at Aeropostale Inc


Wall Street ratings agencies set the tone for today's stock market.

Maidenform (MFB) was unable to move Mr. Market yesterday. The intimate apparel outfit surged some 22.37% after being bought, but its fine line in strapless undergarments proved powerless to prevent the S&P 500 Index (^GSPC) enduring its first back-to-back drop in a month. Eve certainly can't be blamed for the down day, for in addition to lingerie, she also tried to tempt Adam with an upgraded Apple (AAPL). That stock advanced 5.14%, with its best showing of 2013 hopefully proving sufficient to shame a worm who turned on the tech titan in the worst way. Elsewhere, Mark Zuckerberg had a fine time. His Facebook (FB) jumped after-hours as earnings beat Street estimates. This as the Winklevii twins, those two-bit (coin) pirates, look increasingly likely to see their irreparably "unfriended" Larry Summers, appointed head of the Fed.

It's another frenetic session for earnings announcements, with Amazon (AMZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Colgate-Palmolive (CL), Credit Suisse (CS), Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), General Motors (GM), LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMUY), 3M Company (MMM), Sirius XM Radio (SIRI), Starbucks (SBUX), Under Armour (UA), Unilever (UN), and Zynga (ZNGA) all due to report results.

Aeropostale Inc (ARO): The clothing company is begun with a bullish Outperform at BlueFin.

Anglo American Platinum (AGPPY): HSBC Securities assigns an Overweight on the commodity company.

Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners (BEP): The limited partnership is picked up with a Neutral at Credit Suisse.

Huron Consulting (HURN): Barrington has an Outperform on HURN.

Lonmin (LNMIY): Shares are launched with a Neutral at HSBC.
