KeyBanc downgraded Aeropostale, Inc. (NYSE: ARO) from Buy to Hold saying they believe that the middle income consumer remains pressured.

The firm comments, "With a +15% increase in gas prices since January 17, 2013, a roughly $36 billion gap in tax refunds paid year-over-year, and the impact of the payroll tax, we believe that consumers remain pressured. For Aeropostale, the Company is still in the early innings of moving its logo business to a higher fashion content business. Change comes slowly in such processes, and the de-emphasis on logo may pressure near-term results."

NOTE: Ascena Retail Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ASNA) was also downgraded.
