Dillard's - Is The Worst Over Yet?
7 days ago

That was not the context out of it. The pandemic has brought the world on their heels as well as the department stores who has been one of the hardest hit and the pandemic has claimed several casualties in terms of JC Penney and J Crew. I believe a somewhat silver lining every crisis gives is an opportunity to structurally change and just think the ones that will come out of the storm would be much leaner and hopefully more fitter to compete in the space. But that goes without saying that it has wreaked absolute havoc on the people, economy and the department store industry in general.

I reckon the department store industry was struggling from competition with online channels like Amazon as well as discount retailers. The pandemic just aggravated the situation to a grinding halt. It would, in a way, be quite helpful for the industry I believe. As the industry would be looking to make several changes, with #Macy's closing several non-profitable stores and so on.

Thanks for your appreciation. I have not covered the majority of the stocks except $M. You can check out my post on it over here: talkmarkets.com/.../macys-whats-next-after-the-doom

I reckon a $5 level would be a good entry point in M to enter. As for the rest of the companies, you would need to watch out as I write about that.
