Summer is winding down and we’ve reached that point of the earnings season when most retailers are reporting their quarterly results. While we have commented on some the retailers knocking it out of the park in 2018, there are some that have not lived up to the rest of the industry. In fact, they have pushed back against the gains and are some of the biggest losers out there.

Most of the headlines about the grocery wars are about the battle between Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) and Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT). Most recently, Walmart’s management told investors its grocery business had grown rapidly in the latest quarter than it has in years. Amazon continues to target the grocery industry with discounts and special services for many of its 100 million Prime members, particularly for shoppers at Whole Foods, which it bought just over a year ago.

For the first time since May of last year, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) has returned to the top of the chart as the Dow Jones industrial average’s best-performing stock for the year to date. The stock traded about flat for the first two days of the week and bounced — along with the Dow itself — on Wednesday. Apple stock added 4.84% last week, and for the year to date has added 28.6%.

Industrial giant 3M Co. (NYSE: MMM) received a slight boost to its share price last week, but the gain was not enough to lift it out of the Dow’s basement. Shares added about 1.4% on no significant news, but 3M’s stock has now dropped 13% for the year to date.

With earnings across the country rising and the economy appearing to be in much better shape than in the past five years, consumer spending could be poised to jump. Retail seems poised to benefit. In fact, some of the big winners this earnings season were retailers, tipping the scales and helping markets hit new highs, even if not all of them are making the grade.

You see it in the streets — people in their 70s walking around in t-shirts and gym shorts. You can even see it on TV, with anchors going on without ties, slowly dressing down to meet the audience.
