Judgement day for retail ETFs?

  • After the S&P Retail ETF (XRT) rose 36% last year some analysts are openly wondering if it's time for investors to pay the piper as negative momentum in the sector picks up even more steam.
  • SW Retail Advisors' Stacey Widlitz thinks that judgement day might be here after taking in the early round of disappointing reports on holiday sales from the retailer group. The final straw could be a disappointing read on the dollar store group which was forecast to be a resilient trade-down bet.
  • Related ETFs: XLY, VCR, RTH, RETL, FXD, PMR, FDIS, RCD, PEZ, PSCD.
