Thursday’s second-quarter results posted by specialty chains for the period ended July 31 were mixed, and a few noted weakness in some women’s categories.

Value destination Aéropostale Inc. said Thursday that income jumped 13 percent, but the teen retailer offered third-quarter guidance that fell below Wall Street’s projections.

The New York-based firm said income increased to $43.6 million, or 46 cents a diluted share, from $38.6 million, or 38 cents, a year earlier. Sales rose 9.2 percent to $494.7 million, from $453 million. Same-store sales increased 4 percent in the quarter.
