More on June Retail Sales

A decline in sales at furniture stores and home furnishing outlets (PIR, BBBY, LZB, ETH, RH, HVT, KIRK, WSM) dragged down retail sales during the month of June.

The building material and garden equipment category (HD, LOW) was also weak.

Perhaps a surprise, but sales at clothing stores outpaced other businesses during the month.

    That is still not a great number. What I am missing after seeing the first secound quater results oft the first big names Alcoa, JPM, GS, J&J why is Business spending not going up. That certainly would create Jobs.
    It seems to me that there is no confidence.
