Amazon.com is threatening to cannibalize the sales of a large swath of retailers. However, a handful of best-in-class retail companies have Amazon-proof business models.
There are two potential concerns when it comes to TJX Companies Inc (NYSE:TJX). As with all areas of retail, Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and other e-commerce providers create a potential competitive threat. TJX news in terms of traffic has been pretty solid, with the figure rising 2% even in what looked like a disappointing Q3 report last week.
TJX Companies (TJX) announced its fiscal 3Q18 results on November 14, 2017. Its revenue missed analysts’ estimates by 1.5%.

Maxx and Marshalls, reported flat comp sales, missing both buy-side expectations and initial company guidance of 1% to 2% increases. In our view, this is a testament to the power of the off-price business model and experienced management.
The parent company of TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Home Goods is a bright spot among retailers, but that isn’t translating into positive returns.
