Retailers reported December sales results this morning, and it seems the blizzard in the Northeast took a bite out of what was expected to be a record-setting holiday sales season. However, even with several retailers coming in below forecasts for December, most of the retailers we track had a successful November-December period.
Below is a quick summary of results for December and the total holiday period. We will do a more in-depth examination as well as a look at full-year results later today or tomorrow.
Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
