StockCall.com Provides Stock Research on Starbucks Corp., Panera Bread Co., Macy's Inc., and Sears Holdings Corp.
New York City, New York -- (May 01, 2013)
On Tuesday, the Conference Board reported that its consumer confidence index rose more than forecast to 68.1 in April. The data augurs well for specialty eateries such as Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ: SBUX), and Panera Bread Co. (NASDAQ: PNRA) as well as for department stores such as Macy’s Inc. (NYSE: M), and Sears Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SHLD). The improvement in consumer confidence has come despite concerns over the labor market. A report released in April showed that the U.S. economy added just 88,000 jobs in March. All eyes are now set on the jobs report for the month of April, which will be released later this week. If the April non-farm payrolls data exceeds expectations, then consumer confidence is likely to receive further boost.
