Maybe the reason why analysts have been chary about retail is because they've never seen anything like what's happening right now.
Over the last couple of years, MSFT has consistently rallied into earnings.
We forgot that this nation is a nation based on consumption, not on industry, on sales, not on making things.
It is all about perception, and here are strong names to pick up on market weakness.
Relief is on the way, and there's an inexpensive beneficiary out in California.
This morning I respectfully take the other side of Jim "El Capitan" Cramer's optimistic view of the retail space in Retail Stocks Could Really Roar on a Market Snapback, published yesterday. Jim writes: "Groups leave clues, and winning groups leave their biggest clues on down days. And on Monday, we got a real "proof of life" from none other than retail stocks... Retail had a lot of winners on a real loser of a day, and I believe buyers will go back to these stocks the moment that overall selling dries up or we catch a bounce. Traders know that if these stocks managed to withstand Monday's onslaught, these names will fly once things get better (as they almost always do)... Many retailers were strong all day long Monday, but you didn't see it because both Amazon (AMZN) and Walmart were down so much. Costco (COST) , Home Depot (HD)  and Target couldn't really hold on either, although the latter tried to mount a half-hearted rally at both the opening and closing bells.... But there was a ton of strength elsewhere in the sector. Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) , American Eagle Outfitters (AEO)  , Gap (GPS)  , Ross Stores (ROST)  and Kohl's all had strong momentum all day long... All in all, my take is that no one is chiding the consumer -- particularly the one who shops in the mall. Watch this group if we get hit again. I think it can rally first if we're going to get a rally at all." * It is my view that observations of very short term stock price movement, particularly in light of the recent volatility and disproportionate role of machines and algos which exaggerate short term market, sector and individual stock moves - may not hold much import over the following few weeks or months. * Recent better retail comps (Abercrombie & Fitch, Urban Outfitters (URBN) , Dillard's (DDS)  , Gap and Macy's (M)  are against downgraded expectations and may not be sustainable and could be short lived (see below). * After the close, the Nordstrom family abandoned their plans to take (JWN)  private. I had recently expressed concerns that this would
These areas have little exposure to China, so buy them on any broad-market dip over U.S.-Chinese trade tensions.
"Retail is still a falling knife. In the U.S., we have three or four times the amount of retail space per person relative to any other country in the world. Consequently we start with a very great supply. We have built an enormous number of obsolete shopping centers -- shopping center between the very top mall and local mall. Frankly the type of shopping centers that Toys R Us was a tenant in. And I dont know what Amazon will do, but there are so many big boxes available, they don't have to buy Toys R Us stores - it holds no special attraction to Amazon." - Sam Zell, Bloomberg (yesterday) This morning I respectfully take the other side of Jim "El Capitan" Cramer's optimistic view of the retail space in Retail Stocks Could Really Roar on a Market Snapback, published yesterday.

Macy's, Kohl's and other names actually rose Monday despite a terrible tape.
Most of all, we have all learned that, no..... it doesn't come easy.
