Not All Retail Stocks Are Created Equal

Last week, leading high end fashion retailer Nordstrom Inc (NYSE:JWN) was the latest department store stock to drop sharply after reporting earnings. On May 10th Nordstrom Inc stock was trading around $50.00 a share, today the stock is trading at $40.74 a share. Traders and investors can easily see the weakness in JWN and many of the other department store stocks like Macy’s Inc (NYSE:M), J C Penney Co (NYSE:JCP), and Kohl’s Corp (NYSE:KSS). Simply put, the leading retail stocks have been very weak on the charts.

Nordstron Inc is approaching a solid support level around the $37.75 level. This level happens to be the 200-month moving average. Believe it or not, moving averages are very important on all time frames. Traders and investors should look this $37.75 level to be defended by the institutional crowd. This important area on JWN stock was also defended in June 2016 and should be support again when retested.
