While Toys “R” Us could afford to come out of the holiday season with some leftover inventory—as a toy retailer, it could continue selling that in the new year—retailers like Walmart and Target don’t want to. Nearly 50% of all U.S. toy sales occur in the fourth quarter.

If you’re looking for a hot seller, nothing is flying off the shelf faster than Michelle Obama’s new book, Becoming, which hit No. 1 on Amazon’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) bestseller list Nov. 16, three full days before the former first lady’s official book launch. While not an investment book per-se, I’m sure it has lots of good nuggets about life and how to handle ups and downs, something investors are facing these days with regularity.
Specialty retailers have made foot traffic gains now that Toys 'R' Us stores have shuttered, with Mattel Inc.'s American Girl brand drawing the most new shoppers, according to data provided by inMarket, a digital advertising company that uses real-time consumer data. Also on the list are Sears Holding Corp.'s Kmart, Lego and The Disney Store . However, inMarket says "the small bump in traffic is unlikely to change the overall outlook of doom and gloom at the struggling [Kmart] chain." Walmart and Target are making a big push in toys this holiday season, but they shared crossover traffic with Toys 'R' Us, so these shoppers weren't new visitors. "For these chains, the challenge is less about attracting the displaced shoppers, and more about ensuring they spend those former Toys 'R' Us dollars in their stores," according to inMarket. But among those crossover retailers GameStop Corp. topped Walmart and Target. "GameStop will likely see a spike in sales from former Toys 'R' Us shoppers who have one less place to buy their video games and accessories," inMarket wrote.
