Goldman Sachs downgraded American Eagle (AEO) to Sell saying it sees 29% downside risk over the next six months.

Its six-month price target for American Eagle is $12. Shares of the retailer closed yesterday up 17c to $16.92. Goldman lists Ann Inc. (ANN), Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) and American Eagle as its top sell ideas in the Specialty Apparel space. Its lone Buy rated name in the group is Urban Outfitters (URBN).
