E-commerce retailers and shippers: Let it snow!

|By:, SA News Editor

Analysts don't expect the fierce winter snowstorm that struck a wide swath of the Northeast and Midwest to significantly impact overall holiday sales, although a pickup in e-commerce channels could be seen. The trend sets up well for Amazon (AMZN), eBay (EBAY), FedEx (FDX), and UPS (UPS).

Retailers focused on winter gear and machinery such as Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS), Tractor Supply (TSCO), Home Depot (HD), and Lowe's (LOW) could also see some extra snow-related sales, note analysts.
