    • Clothing stores showed some signs of life in May as tipped in today's Retail Sales report.
    • The category was up 1.5% M/M and 3.6% Y/Y to outpace total retail sales.
    • The improvement is consistent is with the reads from the narrow range of apparel chains which still report monthly sales.
    • The sector has seen discounters show stronger traffic trends than mall-based chains, although both groups have eased off promotional activity a bit.
    • Previously: Retail sales stronger-than-expected in May

    • There's a suspicion with some industry insiders that F/X and comp sales headlines are hiding some undervalued picks.
