The nation’s top department store chain, Macy’s runs nearly a thousand Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s stores.
The best-run retailer at a time when Americans are going to have some spending money again.
I like the story for several reasons. First, this is a best-of-breed management team that has a proven record of strong execution. The company engages in heavy investments on future growth, particularly via My Macy’s -- which entails centralized distribution and localized products, e-commerce initiatives and exclusive arrangements, which create loyalty (25% of total sales). The company also has a strong balance sheet that management could ultimately further leverage -- over the next five years -- by buying debt to buy back stock, leading to a potential buyback of 50% of its total shares outstanding.The stock is down 6% from the highs. It should benefit from easier year-over-year earnings comparisons in the next few quarters, from the upcoming holiday shopping season and from the 5% year-to-date drop in oil prices.The stock is trading at 12.5x earnings, a discount to the group and to the S&P 500. Overall, I like the risk-reward scenario.
A retailer in what is arguably the worst demographic (the middle). Add to that a persistent identity crisis and you have the makings of a company destined for heartache. I never thought it would reach $60 so I am a seller here.
Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:- A payout ratio below 50%- An increasing dividend from the prior yearBecause there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen. Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).http://www.factset.com/websitefiles/PDFs/dividend/dividend_12.16.13If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.
Strong free cash flow, sales are increasing, recognizable brand name, and reasonably priced.
They'll have a bigger marjet share with JCP soon to be gone, and they're gonna be buying back shares
Macy's doing great in the market. I can see no victory for the S&P. I'm sure Macy 'll maintain since it cost it's rival two years of defeat.
Karen Finneman likes Macy's and I do, too; it's the "Miracle on 34th Street" gone internet.
Just reported a great quarter; increased dividend and share repurchase plan; JC Penny (main competitor) not nearly as good. I believe in the business model/ brand. I like to shop there (I even have their credit card.) P/E is reasonable too. Long-term accumulate..
I’m gonna pop some tags, only got twenty dollars in my pocket.
can 30 stocks randomly picked from a bag of scrabble tiles beat the market? there's only one way to find out.
Looking at a whole year comparing Macys to S&P 500, Macys has outperformed the S&P.
The good times are over for this retail company as wallets tighten across the country.
Department stores are so two decades ago.
Macy's effectively marketed its clothing to well off shoppers through its online store, so it earned more than analysts expected and this trend should continue.
Ewwww retailer. More and more coupon shopping, more and more shopping for discounts, sales. If you think about it this makes retailers much more cyclical than before. Shopping only happens in November, December and May. I think they better close shop all the rest of the year like a Halloween store or Party place. That will be more cost effective :p
hey macy's i love your prices nice clothes and every thing i hope you never go out of buisness I LOVE YOU!

Macy's has a durable competitive advantage in its name - the Thanksgiving Day parade and Miracle on 34th St are part of the national culture in a way that other retailers are not.
