Purchase
Timing:  The stock dropped significantly from its high, but has begun to rebound.
Reason:  The company offers attractive products at an excellent price. We hope Aeropostale will have an expectedly good holiday season.

Sale
Timing:  
Reason:  The company had excellent sales for December and the sales numbers have been released. The price responded positively to the sales news. However, the analyst noted that those sales were achieved by offering substantial discounts -- as much as 50% -- suggesting that earnings may well be below the forecast.
