The Strange Food Trend That’s Making Investors Rich / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Stephen_McBride

Have you tried Goldbelly yet? Goldbelly is “Uber” for iconic eateries across America. But unlike most delivery apps, which will hurry you a burger or burrito across town, Goldbelly will ship a fresh smoked salmon bagel from New York to LA!

Take Manhattan bagel shop Ess-a-Bagel, which has become a landmark in New York. Like most businesses, its doors shut when coronavirus came through.

But thanks to Goldbelly, Ess-a-Bagel has shipped over 600,000 of its oversized bagels across the US since lockdowns began. And it’s still shipping 6,000 a day! The bagels are flash-frozen and packed into a box with dry ice so they arrive nice and plump.

Walmart Has Made a Genius Move to Beat Amazon / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Stephen_McBride

I ordered Powerbeats earbuds from Amazon the other day. As a Prime member, I got them to my doorstep in Stowe, Vermont the next day for free.

When I unpacked the box, one of the accessories was missing. I called Amazon’s customer service to get a replacement sorted out. But what I was told raised my eyebrows:

“We’ll make a one-time exception. Keep the earbuds and we’ll issue you a full refund right now.”

Retail Sector Isn’t Dead, and These 6% Dividend Paying Stocks Prove It / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Robert_Ross

I’m sure you’re familiar with the “retail apocalypse.” Brick-and-mortar retailers are dying off as people buy more stuff online, or so the story goes.

This trend has taken out household names like Circuit City, Blockbuster Video, and Payless ShoeSource. Even luxury retailer Barneys filed for bankruptcy this year.

All told, about 9,000 brick-and-mortar stores closed in 2019. Meanwhile, e-commerce sales are growing around 5% per year. But there’s more to this story...

Despite the headline-grabbing bankruptcies, about 90% of US retail sales still happen in person.

Retail Sector Isn’t Dead. It’s Growing and Pays 6%+ Dividends / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Robert_Ross

Seems like you can’t go a week without reading about the retail apocalypse.

I saw a recent headline that read, “75,000 Retail Stores Will Close by 2026.”

That may very well happen. But the idea that e-commerce giants like Amazon and Walmart will completely destroy brick-and-mortar retail is outrageous.

Sure, e-commerce sales are growing quickly—about 5% every year. But 90% of US retail sales still happen in person.

Walmart Is Coming for Amazon / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Robert_Ross

Late last year, the company overtook Apple to became the third-largest online retailer in the US. Only Amazon and eBay are larger.

Walmart is quickly growing its online presence by scooping up smaller online retailers like Jet.com, which sells everything from laptops to sunscreen—often at a healthy discount.

Walmart bought Jet in 2016 for $3.3 billion. Since then, Walmart’s online sales have shot up 78%—from $13.4 billion to $23.8 billion.

And it shows no sign of slowing down. Last quarter, Walmart’s online sales grew 43%.

By Justin Spittler :Everyone knows online shopping revolutionized how we buy clothing, electronics, and other merchandise.

Many malls across the country have closed their doors because people simply don’t shop at malls like they once did. Instead they buy things online. After a few days, the things show up at their doorstep.

The media nicknamed this phenomenon the “Retail Apocalypse.” And it has led to…

Will Some Toys R Us UK Stores Re-Open for Christmas? / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Anika_Walayat

Toys R Us went bankrupt last year and closed down ALL of it's stores not just in the UK but across the world. Unfortunately children don't understand the dynamics of highly indebted corporate balance sheets. So Eliza was upset on her 4th birthday drip to discover the store shuttered and closed , so here's a trip down memory late of what it was like to shop at Toys R Us before our local store in Sheffield closed down mid 2018.

The online shopping industry is changing. Last year, mobile purchases increased by 55% and are projected to account for $175bn purchases by 2022. Customer expectations are now bigger, with as many as 4 in 10 online buyers expecting retailers to offer same-day shipping services.

If you regularly shop online, some of the changes coming to e-commerce will be highly beneficial to you. Below are some of these trends you should expect.

Online Grocery Shopping Will Go Mainstream as Soon as This Year / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Stephen_McBride

—and These 2 Stocks Will Rake In Bill

Americans spend more money on groceries than anything besides housing.

The American grocery market is also 3X bigger than ALL of the online retail market. In other words, we spend 3-times more money on groceries than we do buying stuff over the internet.

Yet almost none of it happens on the internet.

You can see on this chart that a tiny 2% sliver of total grocery sales in America happens online:

Why Walmart Will Crush Amazon / Companies / Retail Sector

By: John_Mauldin

By Robert Ross : Last week, Amazon announced that it would launch its own grocery chain.

This is Amazon’s second big leap into groceries. In 2017, the company bought grocery chain Whole Foods for $13.7 billion.

All of this prompted a number of speculations about Amazon’s move into “offline” retail.

While Whole Foods gave Amazon access to 479 physical stores, the company, in effect, has little interest in the brick-and-mortar presence.

Warren Buffett Bought Only One Stock in This Sector—and It’s Exploding / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Stephen_McBride

Amazon sells stuff online for cheap. Usually cheaper than what you’ll pay in a store.

This has given the company a critical edge over brick-and-mortar retailers.

Since it was founded 24 years ago, Amazon has contributed to putting Bon-Ton, Borders, Circuit City, RadioShack and hundreds of store chains out of business.

Many other retailers are barely clinging to life.

Macy’s (M), JCPenney (JCP), and GameStop (GME) still have a pulse, but they’re fading fast. Since 2014, their stocks have plunged 53%, 77%, and 68%.

Store closings in the US hit an all-time high last year, according to leading research firm Nielsen.

Chinese Lunar New Year Sales in line with Expectations / Economics / Retail Sector

By: Dan_Steinbock

According to some international observers, the Lunar New Year sales indicate a plunge in Chinese consumption. Economic realities tell a different story.

Chinese Lunar New Year can be seen as a barometer for Chinese private consumption, due to gift-giving and family reunions. Consequently, both holiday data and its international coverage are of great interest.

Here’s the bottom line: During the Lunar New Year holiday in early February, Chinese retail and catering businesses generated a record over 1 trillion yuan ($148 billion). Sales by retail businesses rose 8.5% from a year earlier.

The U.S. Consumer Measured Via the XLY

“The U.S. economy is the global economic driver. And within the U.S. economy, the U.S. consumer is the global driver.” James P. Gorman

We’re Entering In Negative Territory for 2018

The stock market (measured via the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average) has officially erased all of its 2018 gains. I can see from the headlines like the one pictured below from The Drudge Report that there’s certainly starting to be a bit of panic in the air.

Next Financial Crisis Is Already Here! John Lewis 99% Profits CRASH - Retail Sector Collapse / Stock-Markets / Retail Sector

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This week the mainstream press has been busy focusing on remembering the 'start' of the financial crisis of September 2008 "Lehman's Brother Collapse" that most of whom never saw coming. In act the financial crisis actually began much earlier than September 2008 with the first obvious signs of a credit crisis brewing being the collapse of two Bear Stearns hedge funds during July 2007, but it would take the mainstream financial press another year before they started to connect the dots for the train wreck well in motion.

UK Retail Sector Catastrophe - Toys R Us Woolworth's Moment - ALL Stores Closed Down! / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Nadeem_Walayat

I have been warning for several years now that the UK retail sector was facing a crisis that would result in several Woolworth moments of giant retailers going bust, closing down ALL of their stores. This year has seen the retail sector crisis turn into a catastrophe with several popular chains such as Maplins and Toys closing down ALL of their stores, with many more chains such as New Look, Debenhams and Marks and Spencer teetering on the brink, and not even the pound stores are immune to the unfolding high street catastrophe as illustrated by the fate of Poundstretcher.

Toys R Us Not the Only Major Retail Casualty / Companies / Retail Sector

Toys R Us just joined the unenviable list of top retail failures of the past decade: Circuit City, Linens-N-Things, A&P (the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company), Sports Authority, and Radio Shack (whose downfall we called in 2016).

While there are many reasons for the loss of these once household names, and Toys R Us is citing massive debt burdens as one element in its undoing, there is a much bigger – and more predictable – underlying factor.

Brick and Mortar Stores vs. Online Ssellers / Companies / Retail Sector

By: BATR

For consumers who watched the Wal-Mart store spread throughout the countryside saw local small retailers became an endangered species. Now, some may relish the payback with the dominance of online juggernaut Amazon, who has a prime objective of closing down what remains of the brick and mortar stores. Both in the shopping center era and today with the direct delivery to your doorstep, the low cost seller proves to be the winner. What has changed is that government subsidies are fueling the carriage costs.
