Retailers Designer Brands, Gap, and Costco all report tomorrow.
Don’t forget this post from 5/15…
“If you want to check the numbers yourself, here’s the PDF from census.gov. Here’s the pertinent info… retail sales dropped 0.2% last month, declining in most major segments. This is the second drop in three months. Economists expected a slight climb, so we’re missing on all fronts today. Minus autos and gas, it’s still a 0.2% drop. Electronics, car dealers and home and garden centers were all weaker. The home and garden centers ticking down from March to April is a little scary. Heading further into the planting and spring cleanup season and there are actually less people shopping? Whew, I suppose care on Home Depot and Lowe’s until next months numbers come out to see if this was an anomaly.”
Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Kohl’s, and Macy’s all said that the tariffs have forced them to either alter their financial outlooks, remodel carefully crafted supply chains or consider raising price tags for customers.
