Earnings season is ending but not before the retailers have their say.

This week only about 170 companies are reporting but among them are some of the biggest names in retail.

Over the next 2 weeks over 100 companies are reporting including a bunch of the hot, niche retailers.

Despite all the doom and gloom around the retailers, many of them have excellent earnings surprise track records. And they’re doing it in an industry that has seen its fair share of ups and downs over the last 5 years.

It’s not easy to beat every quarter, or nearly every quarter for years but some of these retailers are doing just that.

In addition, they’re now trying to mitigate tariffs which adds on another layer of complexity.
