Retail Focus 11/17/18 – Legacy Department Store Earnings; Walmart Impresses Again

We stick to legacy retailers to begin this podcast, as Macy’s and JCPenney both release earnings, with one a bit in front of the other in their turnaround execution. Walmart crushes it again, to no one’s surprise—but how long can they keep up their e-commerce growth? We also discuss more layoffs (and struggles) by way of Blue Apron, and a precursor to bankruptcy for David’s Bridal.
