NEW YORK, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ITG (NYSE: ITG), a leading execution and research broker, today announced the launch of new coverage of the department store sector.
The new ITG Investment Research department store coverage offers proprietary views on Kohl's (NYSE: KSS), J.C. Penney (NYSE: JCP), Macy's (NYSE: M) and Nordstrom (NYSE: JWN) using a consumer transaction panel of more than 3 million individuals and 4 million accounts as well as insights from ITG Investment Research's head retail analyst, John Tomlinson.
The new department store reports from ITG Investment Research provide institutional investors with monthly metrics including revenue projections, average ticket size, consumer spending patterns, shopping frequency and estimated market share."Multi-line retailers such as department stores can be difficult to analyze given the breadth of their operations and the fact that many firms no longer report monthly comparable-store sales," said Jie Zhang, Managing Director and Co-Head of Research at ITG Investment Research. "Our new department store research, combining a large proprietary dataset with context and insights from a veteran retail analyst, offers investors a real-time, powerful and differentiated tool for investing in this important consumer sector."
