With a gain of over 40%, the S&P Retail Index is already having a banner year and handily outperforming the 26% YTD gain for the S&P 500. With the holiday season approaching, the retail group is now entering the best time of year for sales. On Monday afternoon we sent out a report to Bespoke Institutional and Bespoke Premium clients highlighting how different groups of retailers have historically performed around the holidays. The report also includes the performance of more than 40 major retail stocks during the holiday season over the last 12 years.
