Nordstrom's (JWN) December sales: Compared to peers, Nordstrom's 8.6% rise in comparable store sales looks downright frothy as both full-price (Nordstrom) and discounted stores (Nordstrom Rack) contributing to results. On a pre-recorded sales call, the company noted strength in the Midwest and South and said sales were strong during the last week of the month. On expansion, 15 stores were added to Nordstrom's total store count compared to a year ago led by expansion of Nordstrom Rack. JWN +3.0% premarket.
