Must Be The Weather?

Low oil prices? Low interest rates? Jobs galore? Wages pressures? Time for a rate hike? Then explain this...

Welcome to the 'recovery'

And by way of the most recent example - the once-was-a-bellwether... GAP:

  • *GAP: BANANA REPUBLIC AUGUST COMP SALES DOWN 11%, EST. DOWN 2.2%
  • *GAP INC. AUGUST COMP SALES DOWN DOWN 2%, EST. DOWN 0.4%
  • *GAP BRAND AUGUST COMP SALES DOWN 8%, EST. DOWN 4.4%

Apparently this is due to Labor Day's timing... not the weather.
