    Citi has a lot to say about retail today (previous: JCP) with analyst Deborah Weinswig tipping off that early checks show July same-store sales are weak for major retailers and margin pressure could be in store as inventories rise. Rating revisions: Target (TGT -0.8%) to Neutral from Buy; Macy's (M +0.2%) price target clipped by a buck to $37 and EPS estimates dropped; Kohl's (KSS +2.2%) sales and earnings estimates dropped.

    Fitch comments on the brewing war between department stores, noting that industry players are under increasing pressure to protect market share with the overall size of the pie declining. Analysts with the ratings agency tip Kohl's (KSS), Nordstrom (JWN), and Macy's (M) as likely candidates to gain market share, while it pegs Sears (SHLD) as the most likely to see further declines.

    The retail sector (XRT +0.5%) ratchets higher after the dust settles from a flood of June sales reports. Investor favorites of the day include Limited (LTD +5.5%) and TJX Companies (TJX +3.5%), with both companies raising their profit outlooks (I, II). Kohl's (KSS +5.3%) is showing surprising strength off its sales miss, but a comment from the department store operator tipping off that sales trends improved over the course over the month is holding sway

    Forecasts for June retail sales tip off that sales growth for the sector could come in at the lowest level since August 2009, according to data compiled by Thomson Reuters. After Nike (NKE) and Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) set the tone with disheartening guidance, the whole sector is on on watch to determine the effects on revenue of a jittery U.S. consumer. Even if a company's numbers are solid, the question of how management is using discounting and promotions to pump up sales will remain in focus.

    Shares of Kohl's (KSS) lose 4.6% in premarket trading after the company reports worse-than-expected May same-store sales as a discussed bounce from disgruntled J.C. Penney shoppers didn't quite register. The company says it made progress building inventory levels, but warns that it expects lower units to dampen sales until the Back-to-School season.
