The Strongest and Weakest Stocks as Retailers Lower Guidance

by | Aug 24, 2022 | Market Updates

The market remains flat as investors await guidance from the Federal Reserve’s symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which kicks off Thursday — and more in Wednesday’s stock market recap.

While inflation appears to have peaked, it may be too soon for the Fed to ease up in regard to upcoming interest rate hikes.

Macy’s Inc. (NYSE: M) and Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN) beat estimates for earnings and revenue, but warned they’re starting to see softer demand and inventory issues.

High-end retailers scaling back their outlooks shows consumers are spending less money on apparel and more on essentials like food and other household necessities.

Earnings season continues with tech companies Salesforce Inc. (NYSE: CRM) and Nvidia Corp. (Nasdaq: NVDA) reporting earnings after the bell Wednesday, and discount retailers Dollar General Corp. (NYSE: DG) and Dollar Tree Inc. (Nasdaq: DLTR) before the open on Thursday.

So bear with us for what we’re about to say…

Because Jeff says the key is doing exactly what Wall Street tells you NOT to do…
