PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- PREIT (PEI) celebrated a milestone fall with the successful opening of its newest property, Fashion District Philadelphia; a new phase of tenant openings at Plymouth Meeting Mall; and the redevelopment and expansion of Woodland Mall. PREIT's investment of over $360 million and years of strategic planning at these properties has already proven successful, with sales and traffic exceeding expectations across all three opening weekends, setting the stage for the future of each property.
It's already here. The sights. The sounds. The red cups. The holiday spending frenzy is once upon us -- whether we are ready for it or not. For many retail stocks, this is the most critical period all year. The don't call it Black Friday for nothing. However, the consumer spending environment continues to get even more cutthroat and hard to navigate.Thanks to online and omni-channel shopping, mobile commerce, one- and two-day shipping and a host of other reasons, many retail stocks are already suffering. The sector is quickly becoming a bifurcated industry -- with haves and have-nots fighting for survival. And the holiday season has only exacerbated this fight. Extra discounting, sales and "door-busters" make a tough environment even tougher.That means there are several retail stocks that aren't going to fair too well over the next few months. And in a few cases, they may not be around much longer.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsFor investors, knowing which companies to avoid can be just as important as knowing which stocks to buy. * 7 Large-Cap Stocks to Give a Wide Berth And with that, here are five retail stocks that should get a big lump of coal this holiday season. J. C. Penney (JCP)Source: Supannee_Hickman / Shutterstock.com After Sear's bit the dust, it's easy to dunk on J. C. Penney (NYSE:JCP) as being the next major retail stock to meet its maker. Like Sear's, JCP is an old-fashioned department store in a world that no longer supports that style of retail concept. Big discounters like Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and e-commerce giants like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) simply do it better. And in that, J. C. Penney has been suffering for years.The problem is, the suffering may finally be hitting a critical level.Debt at JCP remains an issue. As of last quarter, the retailer had roughly $3.6 billion in long-term debt on its balance sheet and about $1 billion in operating lease obligations. The problem is that JCP only has about $175 million in the bank and short-term investments. That's not exactly a great ratio of debt to cash. Nor is that great when sales continue to slide as e-commerce eats its lunch.Even worse is that sort of debt makes it harder for JCP to expand and update in a meaningful way. Sure, the firm has a new store concept, but it simply lacks the funds to roll it out to a variety of locations. Target (NYSE:TGT) spent more than $7 billion remodeling its stores to make them "hipper" and omni-channel friendly. JCP simply doesn't have that kind of cash or time.With JCP already talking to creditors about restructuring its debts, sales continuing to sleep and other rivals getting strong, it's only a matter of time until the firm has to pack up. For investors, JCP is easily a retail stock to avoid this holiday season. Wayfair (W)Source: Jonathan Weiss / Shutterstock.com It's not that Wayfair (NYSE:W) is a bad choice among retail stocks, it's just that a few issues may be hitting its torrid pace of growth. In this case, we're talking about costs across a variety of fronts.While its revenues have continued to climb, W stock has started to see its margins erode and various costs start to increase. As with JCP above, playing in the e-commerce world is an expensive game. Unfortunately for Wayfair, it's now being forced to shell out more to keep those revenues climbing.Last quarter, Wayfair was forced to spend 58.7% more on technology, infrastructure and other expenses related to gathering sales and getting them to consumers fast. Advertising spending jumped more than 12%. Meanwhile, the actual costs of its goods managed to jump as the trade war continues to slog on. All in all, the issues with costs have made U.S. margins a fat negative 3% for W.That doesn't instill much confidence heading into a slowing consumer environment. Add in the fact that other rivals continue to spend more in order to boost shipping, fulfillment and ordering ease, and you start to see a worrisome picture for Wayfair. No wonder why shares cratered the day it announced its results and poor outlook. * 7 Beverage Stocks to Stock Up On W stock isn't a bad retailer overall. It's just that the firm is dealing with some things outside its control. And because of that, it could be rocky for the firm going forward. Shares may still have more room to drop. Gap (GPS)Source: Alex Millauer / Shutterstock.com The middle isn't exactly a great place to be these days. Consumers either want high-end products or deep bargains. For retail stocks offering clothing like the Gap (NYSE:GPS), this is a tough pill to swallow.Sales continue to decline at Banana Republic and Gap as these brands struggle to find an audience.The bright spot for GPS stock has continued to be its bargain-brand Old Navy. These days, Old Navy accounts for roughly 50% of Gap's total sales -- with the other brands bringing in the rest -- around $7.9 billion from Old Navy against $8.7 billion for the other brands. But the pace of revenue growth at Old Navy has been brisk.To that end, GPS has decided to spin out Old Navy as a separate company. And that might seem like a good idea at first. The problem is, Gap really needs those assets to keep the ship moving. GPS is profitable at its other brands, but their slow decline is a spot for concern. Secondly, the hallmark of Gap's online operations has been the one-bag integration of all its brands. Picking up incremental sales and cross-selling has worked in its favor.What's worst is that even execs at Gap aren't sure of the spinoff plans. CEO Art Peck abruptly resigned from the company.With reduced guidance, slowing traffic and no real plans to get out of its funk, GPS is one retails stock that will continue to face some big issues. Those issues will take center stage during this holiday season. Chico's (CHS)Source: Kristi Blokhin / Shutterstock.com "OK Boomer" maybe be a rallying cry among America's youth, but it's also being directed towards a bunch of retail stocks. Take Chico's (NYSE:CHS) for example.Chico's runs a variety of stores -- including its namesake, Soma and White House Black Market. Generally, these brands fall under the higher-end and casual work clothing umbrellas. The problem for CHS is that this sort of style really isn't in focus anymore with millennial and Generation Z shoppers. With joggers now an office staple and bralettes replacing traditional intimate apparel, Chico's is facing a real problem. It doesn't have a core audience anymore. The Boomers are gone and the younger generations aren't buying.Last quarter alone, sales declined by 6.1%. This follows the trend of continued lower quarterly sales figures.Like many of the retailers on this list, CHS is realizing these lower sales at a time when debts and costs have risen. Thanks to its high-end nature, most of its store frontage is in upper-scale malls. Thanks to this, rent expenses are higher and produces more drag on its bottom line. No wonder why Chico's has started closing stores -- 53 have closed over the last three months. * These 7 Stocks to Buy Were Big Winners This Earnings Season In the end, Chico's is a brand without any buyers. With no real plans to turn the ship around, CHS stock could be a real drag this holiday season. Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (PEI)Source: jayk67 / Shutterstock.com If many retail stocks are suffering, then the owners of malls and shopping plazas must be really feeling the heat. Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (NYSE:PEI), also known as PREIT, is a prime example of the carnage being felt by the mall owners.PEI started out as a sprawling regional mall operator and as the recession hit, it took great steps to improve its portfolio of properties. That worked in raising its average sales per square foot and boosting quality of tenants. This worked great and the stock rebounded.And then the bottom dropped out for PREIT.This year, we've seen a variety of retailers such as Payless, Gymboree, Things Remembered and now Forever 21 file for bankruptcy. All of which are fodder for PREIT's style of malls. These closes are starting to once again hurt PEI's bottom line.For the third quarter, PREIT saw its same-store net operating income decline by 5.8% year over year. That decline doesn't exclude lease terminations. And with that, decline, funds from operations -- or the cash that the REIT has to deliver to investors as dividends -- dropped by 34% year-over-year. This follows a 44% year-over-year decline in FFO for the second quarter.PEI stock and its juicy 14% dividend is in trouble. This proves that the carnage in retail stocks is wide reaching.At the time of writing, Aaron Levitt had a long position in AMZN.

[Editor's Note: This article is updated each week with the latest insider purchasing. Check back regularly to see who's making moves.]An insider is a person who has access to confidential information about a company. And when I'm analyzing a company as a potential long-term investment, I always like to know what the insiders are doing. They have a much better idea of what is happening in the company than most analysts. When there is insider buying after the price of the stock has recently dropped, it could be a bullish signal.Over the years, there have been numerous examples of insiders using this information to profit at the expense of uninformed investors. For example, suppose an insider knows that news is about to be released that will make the stock price go up. They can buy it from a shareholder who doesn't have access to the news at a cheaper price then benefit from the gains.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBecause of these abuses, the SEC has established rules and procedures to prevent this type of activity. When an insider wants to buy or sell their company's stock, they have to file a form with the SEC. This is public information, and it can lead to investment ideas.There are numerous reasons why an insider of a company may need to sell their stock. They may need to raise money for things such as tuition or to buy a home. However, there is only one reason why an insider would buy their company's stock -- they believe that it is undervalued and they will make money. * 7 Stocks to Buy Under $10 These seven stocks have had significant insider buying recently and could be worth a look. Stocks With Insider Buying: Church & Dwight (CHD)Church & Dwight (NYSE:CHD) manufactures and sells household, personal care and specialty products.CHD stock has been under pressure recently. Well-known short seller Ben Axler of Spruce Point Capital Management said that the company engages is "extreme financial engineering, aggressive accounting and material self-enrichment practices." That sounds pretty bad.Matthew Farrell is the president and CEO of Church & Dwight. Apparently he disagrees with this assessment. He must believe that the stock will soon recover because he just made a significant personal investment of $500,000. He bought 7,000 shares at $71.32. Liberty TripAdvisor Holdings (LTRPA)Liberty TripAdvisor Holdings (NASDAQ:LTRPA) engages in online travel research and online commerce business.Over the past year, the price of LTRPA has fallen dramatically. Last November it traded as high as $20. Now it is trading below $10. Wall Street is neutral on the company. Only two firms follow it, and they each have hold ratings on it. * 30 Marijuana Stocks to Buy as the Future Turns Green Gregory Maffei has been an officer of Liberty for five years. He is the chairman, president and CEO of the company. He must feel that the stock is a great value at current levels, because he just invested $160,000 when he paid $10.38 a share for over 15,000 shares. Pacific Mercantile Bancorp (PMBC)Pacific Mercantile Bancorp (NASDAQ:PMBC) operates as a holding company that provides a range of commercial banking and services to small- and medium-sized businesses.After making a significant drop in price from last September through December, PMBC stock has been volatile but it has basically traded sideways.The Board of Directors just announced that they have appointed Brad Dinsmore as the president and CEO of the company. From 2011 to 2017, Dinsmore was executive vice president of SunTrust Banks.He must have a lot of confidence that he will be able to take actions that will cause the price of the stock to rise. He recently paid $7.98 for 28,000 shares. This is an investment of almost $225,000. Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (PEI)Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (NYSE:PEI) is a publicly traded REIT that owns and manages quality properties in compelling markets.PEI stock has sold off significantly over the past year. Last August it was trading around $11 a share. It is currently trading around the $5.50 level.Wall Street does not like this stock. Seven firms follow it. The average rating in underweight and the average price target is $5.25, which is below where it is currently trading. * 7 Triple-'F' Rated Stocks to Leave on the Shelf Leonard Korman is a director of PEI. Apparently he believes that the stock will turn around because he just paid $5.29 for 30,000 shares. In August he also bought 30,000 shares as well. His total investment was about $300,000. There was also buying by other insiders as well. Aldeyra Therapeutics (ALDX)Aldeyra Therapeutics (NASDAQ:ALDX) is a biotechnology company that develops and commercializes medicines for immune-mediated ocular and systemic diseases.ALDX stock has lost over 50% of its value in the past year. This isn't surprising because the company loses a lot of money. Last quarter it reported losses of $13 million and in the prior quarter the loss was more than $15 million.Todd Brady, the president and CEO of Aldeyra, invested roughly $85,000 into the company on Sept. 18, buying 14.288 shares at $5.91 per share. In addition, on Sept. 9 and Sept. 10 he paid an average of $5.14 for 20,000 shares. This was a $100,000 investment. Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT)Sarepta Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SRPT) focuses of the discovery and development of medicines for rare diseases.Over the past two months, the price of SRPT stock has lost 50% of its value. It dropped from levels around $160 to current levels around $80.This is primarily due to the fact that the company received some disappointing news from the FDA. First, one of their drugs that is in a clinical trial caused serious side effects. Second, another drug has to be delayed beyond when it was supposed to hit the market. * 8 Dividend Stocks to Buy for a Recession Richard Barry is a director of the company. He must believe that this selling has created a buying opportunity. He just invested almost $290,000 when he bought 3,309 shares at $87.49. Lexicon Pharmaceuticals (LXRX)Lexicon Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:LXRX) is a biopharmaceutical company that develops and sells pharmaceutical products.The price of LXRX stock had been trending lower for almost a year. Then at the end of July it reported that its partnership with Sanofi (NASDAQ:SNY) had terminated the partnership and plunged from $6 to $2.The insiders of the company must believe that this selling was overdone because they have been making significant purchases of the stock.Lonnel Coats is the president and CEO of Lexicon Pharmaceuticals. He invested over $300,000 in the stock when he acquired 100,000 shares for an average price of around $3.11. Raymond Debbane is a director of the company. He just made an investment of about $700,000 when he bought about 290,000 shares. There have been purchases by other insiders as well.At the time of this writing Mark Putrino did not hold any positions in the aforementioned securities.
