    Kohl's (KSS -5.8%) shares keep sliding after the retail chain's disappointing Q4 and downward guidance, but some analysts come to its defense. "Following a disappointing holiday season, KSS is focused on regaining price leadership in FY13 (Jan.)," S&P Capital IQ says, looking for "a stronger value message in pricing and marketing to drive growth in both traffic and units per transaction."

    The "dirty little secret" about big Black Friday sales is more sales mean more returns, writes Kristen Bentz, remaining bearish on the holiday season. Feverishly spending amidst the hype and promotions, consumers go home, look at their receipts, and remorse sets in. "Black Friday does not a season make ... one need(s) to look at November and December together."

    Kohl's (KSS -1.5%) dips after Deutsche cuts the shares to Hold, saying the company appears to have inadvertently trained customers to shop only on promotions, which has led to much greater comp volatility. Additionally, increased competition from Macy's and discounters like TJ Maxx has whittled down its traditional "value gap."

    More on cotton prices (previous): Is the key to the profitability for select retailers how well they are hedged against cotton prices plummeting? Though execs with companies such as GIL, RL, M, RUE, KSS, LIZ, and JCP have all recently pointed to the price of cotton as crucial, the underlying question is when can they actually outlive inventory and contracts to start realizing margin gains? Cotton +0.25%, -23% YTD.
