    • Retail traffic to U.S. stores has declined in 8 out of the last 10 weeks, according to data compiled from ShopperTrak.
    • Though a few on-trend firms such as Michael Kors (KORS +0.1%) and Express (EXPR +8.5%) are still firing on all cylinders, and a heat wave in the Midwest has had an effect, the overall trend for the back-to-school season and holiday season looks weak.
    • Analysts also think consumers are likely to pick up their reliance on deals as discretionary spending on housing and automobiles "crowds out" normal outlays.

    A below par reading on personal spending for April was affected by lower gas prices and home heating bills and isn't a biting indictment on retail spending (AEO, ANF, ARO, BBBY, BBY, BJ, CHS, COH, COST, DG, DLTR, GPS, HD, JCP, JWN, KSS, LOW, LTD, M, NDN, NKE, ODP, PIR, PLCE, RSH, SKS, SPLS, TGT, TJX, URBN, WMT, WSM, ZLC), according to economists. Auto sales also cooled off just a bit in April which had an impact. So far, retail trends have been largely favorable in May as the height of the spring selling season shifted a few weeks later.

    Zale's (ZLC +3%) trades higher again after delivering tidy margin gains in FQ3 and nabbing an exec from rival Signet to be its new chairman. Solid execution from management has trickled down to the retailer's bottom line and has helped lift shares 65% YTD.

    More on Zale's (ZLC) FQ3: As in FQ2, the company reiterates its expectation of a profitable full year. Same-store sales rise 2.6% (constant currency basis and adjusting for February 29) while gross margin and operating margin expand 130 and 80 basis points respectively. YTD earnings are essentially double what they were after two quarters in 2012. The company realizes a $4M reduction in interest rate expense thanks to last year's refinancing. Additionally, ZLC appoints Terry Burman chairman of the board. Shares +26.3% premarket. (PR)
