Retail stocks rally as investors gear up for tomorrow’s holiday sales reporting, with apparel chains and luxury names among the day's top performers. Ralph Lauren (RL +4.2%) leads the S&P 500; among other strong gainers are VFC +3.4%, GAP +2.6%, URBN +2.9%. "Indications are that volumes were up in December, so same-store sales figures will likely look good," Atlantic Equities says.
