Retail sales are a significant economic indicator. Consumer spending drives a huge part of our economy and helps move the markets, and consumer stocks do have a place in a diversified portfolio. In this episode the focus is on the current state of retail shopping in brick-and-mortar locations vs. the impact of consistent growth in online retailing. The entire retail landscape continues to change and evolve rapidly with new technologies. CFN’s John Walker and Dennis Jablonoski talk with Stacey Sears, Small Cap Portfolio Manager at Emerald Asset Management and analyst in the consumer markets sector. Their conversation took place at Emerald Asset Management’s 27th Annual Ground Hog Day Investment Forum in Philadelphia.
