Web Extra: Aeropostale Flying Under Buyout Radar?

Karen Finerman is poring over the fine print again, this time looking at a published report in the New York Post that says Aeropostale has hired Barclays as an advisor.

"But rather than using Barclays to explore options including a possible sale, Aeropostale is doing the opposite: preparing for a defense in case it's approached by private-equity firms," says the New York paper.

And that led Finerman to do a little detective work of her own. What did she learn. Find out in this web extra. Watch the video now!
