Teen clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch Co. ( ANF ) on Thursday received some bearish commentary from analysts at three major Wall Street firms.

The multiple negative calls came on the heels of Abercrombie's disappointing first quarter earnings report. The three firms weighing in on the quarter include:

  • Wells Fargo, who downgraded ANF to "Market Perform" while lowering its earnings estimates,
  • UBS, who cut their price target to $60 and lowered their estimates (but maintained a "Buy" rating), and
  • Citigroup, who removed the stock from its "Top Picks Live" list while cutting its price target and earnings estimates.

Abercrombie & Fitch shares posted small losses in premarket trading Thursday.
