Retail Sales for the Month of October were released earlier this morning, and one thing we wanted to bring attention to is the fact that for 2015, this has been a horrible report relative to expectations. The table to the right shows each of the 11 retail sales reports released so far in 2015. As shown, not a single headline report has exceeded consensus expectations, and only two have even managed to meet expectations. Going back to 2001, there hasn’t been a period where retail sales came even close to this long without a better than expected report.
Bespoke Premium and Institutional subscribers just received a detailed analysis of Friday’s retail sales report including the winners and losers in this month’s report and from a longer term perspective.
