Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart Are Retail Winners Over Black Friday Weekend -- Moody's Analyst

Retailers Best Buy and Amazon were among the winners over the Black Friday shopping weekend, according to a Moody's analyst.

Retailers stepped up their game over the holiday shopping weekend, offering more deals online to boost sales, said Charlie O'Shea, retail analyst at Moody's. He says retail winners included Amazon (AMZN) , Walmart (WMT) and Best Buy (BBY) . According to Adobe, online sales topped $3 billion for the first time ever on Black Friday. O'Shea said some retailers were offering doorbuster sales online, rather than just in stores. Based on early indications, O'Shea said it looks like holiday sales this year will be stronger than last year.
