Shares of mall-based clothing retailers American Eagle (AEO) and Urban Outfitters (URBN) are sliding after the both companies reported fourth quarter earnings per share that beat analysts' expectations but also sounded cautious notes about the current quarter.

The company said it expects its Q1 EPS to breakeven compared to adjusted EPS of 18c last year based on a high single-digit decline in comparable sales and added that "Business conditions remain challenging, with severe winter weather contributing to weak demand." Retail rival Urban Outfitters reported fourth quarter earnings per share of 59c, beating analysts' estimate of 55c, on revenue of $905.9M, which fell below the expectation of $927.86M. The company said comparable retail segment net sales, which include comparable direct-to-consumer channel, increased 1%. Urban Outfitters' CEO said the company will remain "very cautious" about its upcoming first quarter performance due to continued challenges. WHAT'S NOTABLE: During its fourth quarter earnings conference call, American Eagle said business has remained highly competitive and sales trends have been choppy so far this year, though added that it was encouraged by what it saw in the first few weeks of January. The company also noted that its search for a new CEO is under way.

14:52 EDTAEOAmerican Eagle technical comments before results
The shares in the past three months have been trading sideways in a range of $12.50 at the low to $15 at the high. Those two bounds may be useful as a guide to post-earnings price reactions. On stronger than expected bullish news the stock could easily test the upper bound at $15. A breakout above $15 would resolve the range bullishly. Next resistance levels in that case would be at $15.69, $16.50 which is the 52-week high, and $17.15. If the news is bearish, a test to the low of the range would be possible. On a breakdown below $12.50, the following support levels could become additional downside objectives: $11.63, $11.10, and $10.52. The 52-week low is at $10.12 and could be tested on exceptionally bearish news.
