As my colleague Anthony Mirhaydari noted in his article on “5 Turnaround Stocks” last week, J C Penney Company Inc (NYSE:JCP) stock is in the midst of a nice little comeback. JCP stock is up more than 40% in the last month. In the spirit of Black Friday, bargain hunters spotted the discount and swooped in to help JCP stock recover most of its mid-autumn losses.

Bricks and mortar may not be fully back in style, but it does appear consumers and investors are enjoying the shopping experience at Kohl’s Corporation (NYSE:KSS). Since staging a “drop-until-they-shop” buying spree in the immediate aftermath of a slightly-delayed, better-than-feared earnings reaction, KSS stock has gained more than 26% from its bargain-basement bottom price of $37.97. First, much ado has been made of Kohl’s stock being a logical target for Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN).

The combination of a solid start to the holiday shopping season and progress on tax reform has investors flocking to these retailers.
As expected, ever since Amazon purchased Whole Foods, there has been plenty of speculation as to who might be next. The Whole Foods purchase was specific and synergistic. The problems with buying up just any old company for billions of dollars are that first, it costs billions of dollars and while Amazon has a few billion, it doesn’t have many many billions, and second, it requires overhead.
A credit card processing glitch on Black Friday was expected to nip the retail icon's sales recovery in the bud. But Macy's recent decision to increase holiday hiring suggests that sales trends remain solid.
The last change in the short interest score occurred more than 1 month ago and implies that there has been little change in sentiment among investors who seek to profit from falling equity prices. Over the last month, growth of ETFs holding KSS is favorable, with net inflows of $12.34 billion. This is among the highest net inflows seen over the last one-year and the rate of additional inflows appears to be increasing.
Many brick-and-mortar retailers had a positive start to the holiday shopping season. But past experience has shown this doesn't guarantee strong results for the full fourth quarter.
Cold weather, solid inventory management, and better customer engagement tools helped the two companies build positive momentum heading into the final month of the year.
Blowout Black Friday weekend shopping numbers is creating a rising tide that is lifting all names in retail. Digital sales growth was broad-based and came from multiple different names (not just Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)), while brick-and-mortar foot traffic declines are moderating. Both JCP and Macy’s Inc (NYSE:M) have come out and said that they had strong showings on Black Friday, including robust digital sales growth.
The premise first surfaced as a whisper months ago, but with the acquisition of Whole Foods and the opening of a handful of physical bookstores in the meantime, it’s a discussion that’s come to the forefront. Before jumping to the conclusion that it’s just never going to happen though, current and would-be owners of KSS stock may want to take a closer look at all the brick-and-mortar efforts Amazon has already made, with a few of them in partnership with Kohl’s. Until recently, Amazon had been content simply to sell goods made by apparel companies like Nike Inc (NYSE:NKE) and Under Armour Inc (NYSE:UAA).
After grappling with store closures, warm weather, and weak traffic, department stores may finally have a holiday quarter to get excited about.
All he needs is an internet connection! Yesterday, Cyber Monday, was the biggest online shopping day in history. Mobile device sales exploded to the upside totaling more than $5.23 billion, which is up over 17% from last year. Desktop computers seem to be going the way of black-and-white TVs as sales were not that strong.
