The comeback is on for retail sales

|By:, SA News Editor

Retail sales showed some vibrancy in March led by solid gains from building material and garden equipment sellers (HD, LOW) and general merchandise chains (COST, WMT, CASY, TGT). A revision to February's retail sales mark also bodes well for the retail sector.

Sales at electronics and appliciane stores (BBY, CONN, HGG) moved in the wrong direction during the month, falling 1.6% M/M and 0.7% Y/Y.
