When it comes to retail stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in 2017, the tale is one of “haves and have nots.” Having exposure to, or better yet, being focused on e-commerce is a good thing; meanwhile, exposure to retailers that depend on the traditional brick-and-mortar model isn’t so great.
Stitch Fix, a clothing service that uses data, stylists, and clients feedback to handpick items, shed early gains to trade below its issue price Friday.
It’s that time of year again. The winter chill sets in. The nights get darker. And the smell of turkey dinners, cinnamon and pumpkins fill the air.
Earnings season is breathing new life into retail stocks. Turns out the prophecy of death and destruction for brick and mortar is greatly exaggerated. Or, it has at least lowered the bar so far this quarter that beating expectations was a breeze this quarter. Either way, the latest earnings from Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) to Foot Locker, Inc. (NYSE:FL) and Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE:ANF) have the SPDR S&P Retail (ETF) (NYSEARCA:XRT) hopping.Source: Shutterstock

Far from the reaction to the Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) earnings, Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) reported earnings and Wall Street loved what they saw. WMT stock is up 4% on the headline as it beat expectations and raised future guidance. In a sector that has been decimated by Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Walmart is a star.
Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) stock is down 23% year-to-date. Target recently reported its third-quarter results. Target has long sought to differentiate itself from the much larger Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) by offering an upscale alternative for discount shoppers.
The SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) is rallying ahead of Black Friday, with companies like TJX Cos. (TJX) winding up for a comeback. The SPDR Retail ETF saw 42 one percent-declines and 39 one-percent advances, all of which have accounted for about 40% of all trading sessions. The problem is follow-through, says Instinet technical analyst Frank Cappelleri.
TJX Cos. (TJX) is higher on Wednesday, shaking off losses following its third-quarter earnings report. Analysts are weighing in on the stock today, writing that the issues that weighed on TJX in the quarter are temporary, and shouldn't spook investors away from its otherwise strong business model that looks relatively more insulated from Amazon (AMZN). BMO Capital Markets' John Morris said that TJX's problems were transitory, and the selloff provides a good entry point ahead of a stronger holiday season.
Long gone are the days when Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT) was the cool place to shop in my circle of friends and where smart money went to invest in retail. Now, retail stocks like TGT and Macy’s Inc (NYSE:M) are but a fraction of what they used to be. Sure there are a few survivors like Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) and Costco Wholesales Corporation (NASDAQ:COST) but for those companies who didn’t know how to survive on thin margins, their stocks got decimated.
