Retail bellwethers misbehave

  • Retail analysts are looking at underlying factors influencing consumer demand after two of the most resilient companies in the sector missed with their latest earnings report and guided full-year EPS down.
  • Setting aside the weather, promotions, data breaches, and F/X swings which influenced some of the retail heavyweights -  TJX Companies (consumer trade-down) and PetSmart (consumer loyalty) were the U.S. bellwethers which turned in the wrong direction.
