Is 2017 the Year of the Retail Stock Famine?

These retail stocks are up against the cage going into 2017 and beyond

    View All  

Other retail stocks like Aeropostale Inc (OTCMKTS:AROPQ), American Eagle Outfitters (NYSE:AEO), Childrens Place Inc (NASDAQ:PLCE), Chico’s FAS, Inc. (NYSE:CHS), Finish Line Inc (NASDAQ:FINL), and Men’s Wearhouse are all expected to close stores this year as well. The first quarter is notoriously hard for retail stocks, as consumers are recovering from holiday shopping.

In the midst of all this traditional retail stock chaos looms Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), quietly waiting, ready to strike when the moment is right. In the past, that moment has been books, the Cloud, Internet of Things, movies and television, grocery shopping, drones and almost everything else. Whether it will ever be retail, only Jeff Bezos and his crystal ball have the power to tell us that.
