Over the past week the Dow hit an all-time high on the back of this earnings season, and the S&P 500 was within a few points of its record. However, one industry in particular has been holding back this rally. Retail stocks have lagged the market in 2017 thus far. We are reaching the point in the earnings season when most big retail companies will report, and this has the potential to right some of the losses this year.
24/7 Wall St. has reviewed some of the key retailers reporting this coming week. We have included the consensus earnings estimates from Thomson Reuters and the stock price and trading history, as well as some additional color on each.
Also see our separate preview of Disney, Snap and other upcoming and highly anticipated earnings reports.
