Retailers responded to soft demand with aggressive discounting and promotions in June, but sales gains may have been tempered by lower margins. Overall, results were mixed as Limited (LTD +1.3%), Macy's (M +2%), JC Penney (JCP +6.2%) and Nordstrom (JWN -2.2%) reported better-than-expected numbers, but Kohl's (KSS -3%), Gap (GPS -8.6%) and Target (TGT -1.6%) came up short.

    Retail results were being hyped up on Wednesday big time. And now today with more data we discover the results were not so hot.
    I do not recall which news sources were hyping the retail results yesterday, but in retrospect, they were not very reliable.
