- A slide in retail sales during December was impacted by weakness with the electronics stores (BBY, CONN, HGG) and building materials/garden equipment (HD, LOW) categories.

- Holiday retail sales rose 4.6% vs. expectations for a 3.8% lift, according to a read from ShopperTrak. The growth rate is the highest since 2005 for the period.
- The rush of positive reports from retailers on holiday sales comes off of some beaten-down expectations, notes Chain Store Age.
- Concerns on mall traffic, a West Coast port slowdown, and a frenzied level of promotions drove consensus estimates lower before some macroeconomic factors improved and $2 gas entered the scene.
- A cross-section of retailers that surprised on the upside includes Barnes & Noble, Pier 1 Imports, Walgreens, Urban Outfitters, and Sonic.
- What to watch: Costco (NASDAQ:COST) put up a 5% comp for December, putting some pressure on Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) and Target (NYSE:TGT) to show signs of late-quarter strength. Signs of weakness at dollar stores (DG, DLTR, FDO, FIVE) and electronics chains (HGG, CONN, BBY) are a concern. Retailers seen as on-trend for the holiday season include Foot Locker (NYSE:FL), Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU), and Williams-Sonoma (NYSE:WSM).
