Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Adam Levine-Weinberg]

    After several years of being a Wall Street darling, Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) has fallen out of favor since 2015 as it has been hit by some of the same negative trends that have hurt the department store sector as a whole.

    One theme that’s become apparent is that consumers are betting that a Trump tax cut will lead to more money in their pockets. That’s good news for the so-called “trade-up” stocks like Nordstrom (JWN) and Kohl’s (KSS) .

    The Bad

    Bonds behaved poorly. The 10 year and long bond rose by between 3-4 basis points in yield. I bought a trading position in iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) in front of a possible yearend pension rebalance. Big pharma stinks up the joint, again. Spec biotech is weakening again (Portola Pharmaceuticals PTLA, ACADIA Pharmaceuticals ACAD, etc.) Retail cant get out of its way. I am long JC Penney (JCP) and have trading positions in Kohl’s (KSS) and Macy’s (M) . (Nike (NKE) , Nordstrom (JWN) , Lowe’s (LOW) are downside features).
