Earnings season is over. For now.
Are you curious to see how the major retailers stacked up against each other? Let's take a look.
TheStreet compared earnings from a handful of retailers.
The classic American department store gets smiley faces across the board for surprisingly strong earnings, which happily beat expectations, helping the stock to a 2019 gain of nearly 6%.
what about TJ Maxx? Its fourth quarter bottom line may have only earned a "meh" from Wall Street analysts, but its shares are up more than 16% this year as investors bet a U.S.-China trade deal will remove any further tariff risk from the discount retailer's business model.
Gap (GPS) - Get Report may have impressed with its EPS beat, but its revenue made Wall Street frown. The company reported an EPS of 72 cents, which beat analyst expectations. The revenue came in short at $4.62 billion.
Gap may have distracted investors with the news that the company is splitting off from its Old Navy stores, but its weaker-than-expected sales have sent the stock nearly 10% lower since reporting last week.
Nordstrom impressed with solid earnings, although not to point where investors are ready to buy the mall icon's stock: its shares are down nearly 4% since New Year's Day and gets a "must-do-better" from TheStreet.
