Early commentary on Black Friday traffic is largely positive. DisplaySearch's checks at California retail locations indicated significant Y/Y traffic increases, as well as full parking lots for Best Buy (BBY +1.2%), Target (TGT -0.2%), and Wal-Mart (WMT +0.8%). Consumer interest in TV sets especially appeared to be strong, thanks to major promotions. However, Citi thinks good weather could be inflating sales.
