    Walmart to overtake Apple on list of biggest e-commerce retailers

    Walmart Inc. , including the namesake retailer, Sam's Club and Jet.com, will overtake Apple Inc. to take the number three spot on the ranking of the world's largest e-commerce retailers, according to eMarketer data. In 2017 Apple had 3.8% of sales share, ahead of Walmart's 3.3% of share. For 2018, Walmart is poised to claim 4.0%, swapping places with Apple, which will have 3.9% of share. The top two e-commerce retailers for 2018 will be Amazon.com Inc. with 48% and eBay Inc. with 7.2%. "Importantly, Walmart has one of the fastest growing e-commerce businesses," eMarketer wrote, with 39.4% online sales while Apple's e-commerce growth will be a little more than 18%. Walmart's third-quarter e-commerce sales grew 43%, the company announced on Thursday. Walmart shares have gained nearly 3% for the year to date, Apple stock is up 10.4%, the Amplify Online Retail ETF has rallied 7.7%, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 1.5% for the period.

Boss warned that company-specific and industry-wide volatility could continue.

    Holiday season retail sales expected to increase 4.3% to 4.8%: NRF

    The National Retail Federation expects retail sales in November and December, excluding gasoline, restaurants and automobiles, to increase 4.3% to 4.8%. Total sales are expected to be between $717.45 billion to $720.89 billion, up from $687.87 billion last year. The 2017 holiday season total was a 5.3% year-over-year increase. The group credits the strong economy and consumer confidence for this year's growth, but acknowledges some worries. "While there is concern about the impacts of an escalating trade war, we are optimistic that the pace of economic activity will continue to increase through the end of the year," said NRF Chief Executive Matthew Shay in a statement. Walmart Inc. and Target Corp. have warned that tariffs could raise prices and hurt families. NRF expects seasonal employment is expected to grow to between 585,000 and 650,000, up from 582,500 last year. Amazon.com Inc. increased its minimum wage to $15 amid a tight labor market, putting pressure on retailers to raise wages. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF is up 9% for the year to date, while the Amplify Online Retail ETF has rallied 21.2%, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has increased nearly 9%, and the S&P 500 index has gained 9.8% for the period.

    Wayfair price target leaps as investments in fulfillment expected to deliver growth

    Wayfair Inc.'s price target was raised to $165 from $140 at Canaccord Genuity as analysts think the online home retailer's investments in delivery operations will yield growth. "Wayfair's extensive build out of its delivery infrastructure brings a number of benefits, including faster and cheaper delivery, lower damage rate, and improved customer experience, all of which drive higher repeat rates and therefore higher customer life-time value," analysts led by Maria Ripps wrote. "The investment cycle that started in 2015 is paying off, with the percentage of orders from repeat customers increasing from ~50% in 2014 to ~65% currently, and direct retail revenue growing at nearly 50% for the last three consecutive quarters." Canaccord analysts cite data showing that nearly 40% of consumers think two-to-three day shipping is acceptable for purchases that aren't urgent, and about 25% prefer same-day or one-day shipping. Wayfair shares are up 2.1% in Friday trading, and up 111% for the last year. The S&P 500 index has gained 16.3% for the past 12 months, and the Amplify Online Retail ETF has gained 43.6% for the period.

    Hourly wages for seasonal workers expected to increase 32% this year

    Hourly wages for seasonal workers will rise nearly 32% according to the 2018 Annual Holiday Hiring Survey conducted by Snag, a marketplace for hourly work, and Wakefield Research. The average hourly wage for 2018 is expected to be $15.40 this year, up from $11.70 last year. Snag polled 1,000 people with hiring responsibilities across retail, restaurants and hospitality for its survey. Wages in retail are taking the biggest leap, 54%, with employers recruiting earlier. The wage hike and early staff searches are attributed to lower unemployment rates and a tighter labor market. "With more employers saying they'll need extra workers this year (84% versus 77% in 2017), the competition for skilled hourly employees is expected to be fierce, and 86% of employers say they will struggle to fill temporary seasonal positions," according to a Snag statement. "To attract workers, a majority of employers (77%) say they'll be offering perks and benefits including paid time off, training opportunities, childcare, tuition stipends, health insurance, and even transportation reimbursement." The SPDR S&P Retail ETF [S: xrt] is up 14.2% for the year to date, the Amplify Online Retail ETF has rallied nearly 28%, and the S&P 500 index is up 9.3% for the period.

    Retail holiday sales to increase 5% to 5.6% this year: Deloitte

    Deloitte is forecasting a 5% to 5.6% year-over-year increase in retail holiday sales this year, with spending expected to exceed $1.1 trillion between November and January, excluding motor vehicles and gasoline. E-commerce is expected to increase 17% to 22% this season versus last season, reaching $128 billion to $134 billion. Deloitte analysts attribute the increase to disposable income growth, a strong labor market, and high consumer confidence. Risks include the impact of Fed tightening and any changes in the stock market that could drive a deterioration in consumer confidence. Target Corp. has increased its seasonal hire by 20% to 120,000 in anticipation of the coming holiday season. Macy's Inc. and Michaels Cos. Inc. are among the other retailers that have already announced their seasonal hiring plans. The Amplify Online Retail ETF has gained 28% for 2018 so far. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF has rallied 14.4% for the period. And the S&P 500 index is up 8.8% for 2018 to date.
