Stephen Guilfoyle says that an expanding economy would benefit consumer-discretionary stocks, but I have serious doubts about retail's ability to rebound at this time.
Yes, there will be a bottom eventually, as we won't see a future with no brick-and-mortar stores whatsoever. But that business is in the early stages of an evolution into whatever it will eventually become in an Internet world.
As for the rest of the sector, an improving economy means more money spent on entertainment, vacations and merchandise -- and who else will benefit from all of that more than Walt Disney Co. (DIS) ? Disney's troubled ESPN unit might have to evolve as cable TV goes the way of bricks-and-mortar retailers, but content is king -- and so is family fun when there's enough money in the budget to include it. And need I even mention Star Wars?
