The objective of this page is to provide a periodic update of the status of retailer stock prices. The emphasis on stock prices provides insights into how investors view companies in the sector as well as how they have performed in the recent past. While the data are deemed reliable and current, no representation is made as to their accuracy at any particular point in time. Interested visitors are encouraged to query the data themselves and rely on other sources for decision-making. To aid in the process, the ticker symbols for each company are presented in the tables.

It should be noted that the graphs and tables are designed to allow you to determine how various retailers and retailer categories stock price trends compare to their peer universe. As such, the price scale has been capped at $100. While missing some peaks, this approach allows you to see the relative volatility of retailer stocks. The Time Periods indicate the most recent month included in the series as well as the same month in the prior year, 12 month and 3 year rolling averages along with the percent change in current date from those time periods. To provide a longer-term view, the 10 year averages, standard deviations and Return/Risk ratios for stock prices, as well as the average percent change in stock prices, standard deviation and Return/Risk ratio. Finally, the current Index Value of the time-weighted returns over the past 10 years are presented; unless noted, the initial index of 100 was set for December 1999.

Please bear with me as I try to make this section more user friendly and check back as we will be making more changes. Any suggestions regarding useful data/formats are welcomed; if you have any, please Contact Me.
