NEW YORK Retail stocks fell on Monday after data showed Black Friday sales dipped despite an increase in store traffic. Mall traffic tracker ShopperTrak said on Saturday retail sales decreased 1.8% on Friday, the biggest traffic and sales day of the holiday season, despite a 3.5% increase in retail foot traffic. Teen retailer Aeropostale Inc. fell 5.5% after Janney cut its rating on the stock to neutral from buy, adding improvement at its rival Abercrombie & Fitch Co. and strong product acceptance at American Eagle Outfitters Inc. could shift spending away from the company. Amazon.com Inc. and Best Buy Co. both inched up 0.6% as their fierce battle continues on the so-called Cyber Monday sales. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. fell 0.7%. The company said it had its "best ever" Black Friday events, with 22 million shoppers on Thursday, when it began launching its doorbuster specials at 8 p.m. Separately, Deckers Outdoor Corp. rose 7% as it reportedly could be a buyout target on cheap valuations.
