All four are in bear market territory compared with all-time or multiyear highs set between March 2015 and March 2016. Meanwhile, Amazon (AMZN) recently slipped into correction territory after setting an all-time intraday high on Oct. 6.
Amazon reported earnings on Oct. 27. It missed analysts' earnings-per-share estimates for the quarter that ended in September. Amazon ended last week with a negative weekly chart. One reason for the Amazon loss is the company's continued growth plan, both online and in building new fulfillment centers.

Macy's reports earnings before the opening bell on Nov. 10. Analysts expect this iconic retailer to earn 41 cents a share. Macy's will likely have a neutral weekly chart at the end of this week.
Nordstrom reports earnings after the closing bell on Nov. 10. Analysts expect it to earn 53 cents a share. The weekly chart will end the week negative unless there's a positive reaction to earnings.
J.C. Penney reports earnings before the opening bell on Nov. 11. Analysts expect this retail turnaround story to report a loss of 20 cents a share. The weekly chart is negative but oversold.
