- Consolidation in the retail sector could give some leverage to the store chains as their scale broadens, according to Belus Capital Advisors' Brian Sozzi.
- On watch: PepsiCo (PEP -0.7%), Coca-Cola (KO -0.7%), Kraft Foods (KRFT -0.1%), Procter & Gamble (PG -0.4%), Colgate-Palmolive (CL -0.3%), Energizer Holdings (ENR -0.8%), Kimberly-Clark (KMB -0.3%).
