NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Today's buy-and-trade earnings previews focus on five buy rated companies in the retail-wholesale sector that report quarterly results premarket Thursday including big box retailer Target (TGT - Get Report), casual apparel seller Buckle (BKE) and discounter Dollar Tree (DLTR - Get Report).On Tuesday I wrote Holiday Sales, Housing Recovery Are Key to Recovery and this theme continues as retail earnings becomes a stock market focus. If earnings reports for retailers are not up to par and if housing data weaken, the stock market becomes vulnerable. Such would be further proof that Federal Reserve policy is failing to help Main Street, USA.
