Costco Wholesale

stock is up 18.5% year to date, and a coming data set could indicate where it heads from here. The discounter’s August sales report, due out on Wednesday, will be another read on how consumers are behaving as stimulus checks wane, and a preview of its upcoming earnings report.

Yet many other retailers have informally begun doing this in recent months, to demonstrate how they’ve been faring during the pandemic—showing how

Macy’s (M) reports Q2 2020 net loss, same-store sales down 35%

Macy’s got a bigger-than-expected boost online during the latest quarter, even as its stores started to reopen during the coronavirus pandemic. 

The department store operator’s digital sales surged 53% from a year earlier, as more shoppers visited its website to buy workout clothes and home decor. The company also said luxury categories at Bloomingdale’s outpaced internal expectations. That helped it report a narrower loss and higher overall revenue than analysts were expecting. 

Still, with so much uncertainty in the industry ahead of the all-important holiday season, CEO Jeff Gennette said Macy’s is planning conservatively for the remainder of 2020, and the company didn’t provide a financial forecast. 

The retailer is planning for its same-store sales to be down in the low-to-mid 20% range during the fall season. It said its profit margins are expected to peak in the third quarter, as shipping expenses and other heightened costs during the holidays
