SUPERVALU ( SVU) pushed the Retail industry higher today making it today's featured retail winner. The industry as a whole closed the day down 1.7%. By the end of trading, SUPERVALU rose $0.07 (1.0%) to $7.09 on average volume. Throughout the day, 4,298,207 shares of SUPERVALU exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 4,135,000 shares.

Other companies within the Retail industry that increased today were: Body Central ( BODY), up 7.0%, Companhia Brasileira De Distribuicao ( CBD), up 4.2%, Best Buy ( BBY), up 3.5% and Genesco ( GCO), up 2.7%.

SUPERVALU INC., together with its subsidiaries, operates as a wholesale distributor to independent retail customers in the United States.

TheStreet Ratings rates SUPERVALU as a sell. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been poor profit margins.

On the negative front, QKL Stores ( QKLS), down 13.6%, E-Commerce China Dangdang ( DANG), down 5.2%, Vipshop Holdings ( VIPS), down 4.9% and Stage Stores ( SSI), down 4.6% , were all laggards within the retail industry with Walgreen Company ( WAG) being today's retail industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the retail industry could consider SPDR S&P Retail ETF ( XRT) while those bearish on the retail industry could consider ProShares Ultra Sht Consumer Goods ( SZK).
