    • The S&P Retail ETF (NYSEARCA:XRT) is up 1.9% with apparel and footwear stocks doing much of the heavy lifting.
    • A vibrant rally in sports stocks was sparked by earnings reports and Nike. Iconix Brand (ICON +2.5%), G-III Apparel (GIII +3%), DSW (DSW +3.7%), Finish Line (FINL +3.1%), Caleres (CAL +2.2%), Genesco (GCO +3.5%), and Shoe Carnival (SCVL +1.7%) join the list reported on earlier.

    • The beat-up mall retailer group is also recovering after results from Gap (GPS +6%) and Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF +19.4%) topped worst-case scenarios. American Eagle Outfitters (AEO +2.3%), Guess (GES +4.6%), and Pacific Sunwear (PSUN +5.4%) are notable gainers.

    • Apparel store stocks are weaker on more reports of higher wage levels and a string of earnings duds in the sector.

    • Margins are a big concern in the sector as sales deleverage plays in and a higher mix of e-commerce chips away.
    • Other notable declines include Stein Mart (SMRT -5.4%), Ascena Retail (ASNA -5.5%), The Children's Place (PLCE -4.8%), Shoe Carnival (SCVL -2.2%), Buckle (BKE -2.1%), Francesca's (FRAN -1.9%).
