Is American Eagle a Bargain?

The Fool has a write-up on American Eagle Outfitter's 4th quarter results. They still appear bullish on the company despite its poor performance:

"However, American Eagle Outfitters is currently trading at only 10 times trailing earnings, which certainly sounds like a bargain price for a retailer that may have slowed down somewhat in recent months. Sluggish or not, American Eagle strikes me as a quality business with plenty of growth potential, a popular brand, cash on the balance sheet, and no debt. A 41% drop in the company's stock price over the last 12 months seems quite overdone, and a great opportunity for long-term investors. "
