 Popular Black Friday AND Cyber Monday Plays:

Sears is offering two waves of doorbusters. The first at 8pm on Thanksgiving, and other at 4am on Black Friday. Sears members can also shop doorbusters online today through Monday.

 

6. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. ( WMT, Earnings, Analysts, Financials): Operates retail stores in various formats worldwide. Market cap at $231.B.

Wal-Mart is discounting products a few hours earlier as they cut prices late on Thanksgiving day.  Wal-Mart, Sears, Kmart and Toys R Us will all open stores at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving day.

 

7. Macy’s, Inc. ( M, Earnings, Analysts, Financials): Operates department stores and Internet Web sites in the United States. Market cap at $15.84B.

Macy’s has always been a popular shopping destination, especially for the mall scene. The store is a natural beneficiary of the black Friday rush to other popular shops in malls and shopping strips. Macy’s is offering online Black Friday specials online Thursday November 22nd through Saturday November 24th. Stores will open at midnight through 1pm on Friday, November 23rd. Their website features several holiday deals, and a phone app so shoppers can receive in-store alerts on Black Friday specials.

 

Popular Cyber Monday  Plays:

SHIPPING 

As items purchased online must be shipped, FedEx and UPS are without a doubt one of the biggest beneficiaries of Cyber Monday.

It’s been  reported that “FedEx is forecasting a 13 percent increase in shipping this holiday season as compared with last; UPS predicts a 10 percent increase; and the U.S. Postal Service expects a whopping 20 percent jump in the number of packages shipped between Thanksgiving and Christmas.”
