Oh, but let us not forget Rack's growth. JWN is toast during next recession if it hasn't already begun. Alcoa revenue down 9% YOY. Analysts revising numbers at an accelerating pace in an attempt to stem the tide. Good luck with that.
This whole market rally is a hoax...all predicated on monitary easing on a global scale. Now you know why Bernanke left unending QE...and the government is telling us the unemplyment number is now 7.8, while the last three unemployment fillings were up. 114,000 new jobs doesn't even keep up with population growth.
If present company stays in office you can count on the folks that shop at Nordstrom et al., will be pulling back with all the "soak the rich" taxes coming in the new year.
