Say It Ain't So, Mr. Macy! Real Money Pro($)

Slower traffic caused significant promotional activities; commoditized some of its core products; lost top-line volume as worked back to mix. E-commerce was strong but lower than expected. Was out of balance with cold weather assortment. Company says greater opportunity for diversifying product mix; can drive volume in a discounted environment but still want to play the role as a premium full-priced brand. Company has taken steps to better position for future promotional environments. Imbalance due to extreme growth that it sees as an opportunity. Bottom Line If the New York Post press report is correct (though I am skeptical), I might put a needle in my eye for reversing the trade on Tuesday.
