Barnes & Noble Inc. on Thursday cautioned investors that it could reduce its earnings guidance by up to 10%, citing higher spending on advertising and promotions. At the same time, the book retailer said comparable sales during the holiday season, the period between Black Friday and New Year’s Day, rose 4%. For the nine weeks that ended Dec. 29, comparable sales rose 1.3%.
Investors entered the holidays with both optimism and trepidation, knowing that this might be the last hurrah of the economic recovery -- a kind of peak Christmas.

Slowing sales and more pressure on profit margins will no doubt increase the divide between the winners and losers in the retail industry.
