    LivingSocial plans to step away (audio) from local deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday to offer national deals from major retailers. The firm's goal is to provide consumers with irresistible offers on the site on those days that will provide vouchers to help drive them back to brick-and-mortar or online stores in the crucial Nov. 28 to Dec 31 shopping period. Partners for the promotion include SFLY, SKX, OMX, VZ, and  NILE.

    ComScore's report on retail E-Commerce sales (previous) showing strong gains in the Jewelry & Watches category doesn't quite dovetail with Blue Nile's (NILE -30.5%) disastrous Q3 report. The fly in the ointment could be the higher wholesale diamond prices that online jewelry sellers such as NILE, OSTK, ZLC, AMZN, and TIF have a tough time passing on to strapped bargain-hunting consumers as easily as brick-and-mortar retailers like ZLC and SIG.

    Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Blue Nile (NILE) and GSI Commerce (GSIC) are three stocks bottom fishers should be wary of, WSJ's Heard on the Street says. "Paying for growth in a no-growth environment is probably a losing bet."
