With supply chain pressures and rising costs still weighing on markets, retail investors continue to see long term value.----- Transcript -----Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Mike Wilson, chief investment officer and chief U.S. equity strategist for Morgan Stanley. Along with my colleagues bringing you a variety of perspectives, I'll be talking about the latest trends in the financial marketplace. It's Monday, October 18th at 11:30 a.m. in New York. So let's get after it. Last week, we noted it may take a bit longer for the Ice portion of our Fire and Ice narrative to play out. More specifically, we cited the potential for markets to look through the near-term supply bottlenecks and shortages as temporary. With the Biden administration directing substantial resources toward addressing the problem, that conclusion is even easier to make. Second, the budget reconciliation process has been pushed out and is unlikely to be resolved until later this year. This delays the negative earnings revisions from higher taxes we think have yet to be incorporated into 2022 consensus forecasts. In short, while earnings revisions' breadth is falling from extreme levels, it isn't falling fast enough to cause a deeper correction in the broader index, at least not yet. Perhaps most importantly for the broader index is the fact that retail continues to be a major buyer of the dip. We highlighted a few weeks ago that the correction in September was taking longer to recover than the prior dips this year. In fact, both the primary uptrend and the 50-day moving average had finally been breached on significant volume. Could it be that the retail investor had finally run out of dry powder or willingness to buy the dip? Fast forward to today, and the answer to that question is a definitive “no”. Instead, our data show retail investors remain steadfast in their commitment to buying equities, particularly on down days. Until these flows subside or reverse, the index will remain supported even as the fundamental picture deteriorates. As already noted, earnings revision breadth is rolling over. Some of this is due to higher cost and supply shortages, which investors seem increasingly willing to look through as temporary. We remain more skeptical as the data also supports sustained supply chain pressures, rising costs and the potential for weaker demand than anticipated next year. Last week, our economics team published its latest Business Conditions Index survey, which showed further material deterioration. While most of this decline is due to supply issues, rather than demand, we're not sure it will matter that much in the end if earnings estimates have to come down one way or the other. As part of our mid-cycle transition call, we have been expecting business confidence to cool. We think it's important to note that our survey suggests it's not just manufacturing businesses that are struggling with cost and supply issues. Service businesses are also showing material deterioration in confidence to manage these pressures. Whether and when it proves to be a concern for equity markets remains unknown, but we think it will matter between now and January. Until proven one way or the other, the seasonal path of least resistance for equity markets is flat to higher. Similar to our Business Conditions Index, consumer confidence surveys have also fallen sharply. Like business managers, the consumer appears to be more concerned with rising costs rather than income. Yet, the retail investor continues to aggressively buy the dip. This jibes with the conclusion other investors are making -- that demand remains robust, and we just need to get through these supply bottlenecks and price spikes. One other possible explanation is that individuals are worried about inflation for the first time in decades, and they know it's not temporary. Stocks offer protection against that rise to some degree, and so we may be finally witnessing the great rotation from bonds to stocks that has been predicted for years. While we have some sympathy for that view in the longer term, the near-term remains challenged by the deteriorating fundamentals in our view. In short, we'd like to see both business and consumer confidence improve before signaling the all clear on supply and demand trends. Thanks for listening. If you enjoy the show, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts and share Thoughts on the Market with a friend or colleague today.

The elimination of cookies is going to make it essentially impossible for retailers to get the third-party data they need to fuel their personalization initiatives. But with the right methods, your loyalty program can save the day! During this episode of Retail Remix, Alicia Esposito sits down with Rob Garf and Natasha Janic of Salesforce to discuss all of the major shifts happening in the marketing space, including Apple's changing privacy guidelines and Google's removal of third-party cookie tracking, and how that drives major data in loyalty programs. Specifically, they dig into: The value of zero- and first-party data and how to collect it across channels; New ways to create value and a mutually beneficial relationship with consumers; Recommendations (and requirements) for building trust and transparency around data collection practices; and How to power “data democratization” across the organization, including in stores.

Retail sales rose 0.7 percent as consumers spent a little more on clothing, back to school purchases and hobbies. The increases were being made in the face of higher prices as the consumer price index bumped up 0.4 percent.

While others run away from bricks and mortar retail, Doug Putman races in. What began as a single fruit stand in his teens, now bears billions of dollars in sales. Today Doug Putman owns HMV in Canada and the United Kingdom, Toys"R"Us and Babies R Us in Canada, FYE - For Your Entertainment in the USA, T. Kettle in Canada, Sunrise Records and he is only 37 years old. This is his incredible story and within, Doug offers so many lessons and my standing ovation for believing in retail and all `the energy and jobs it provides to the community and economy. So how did Doug accomplish so much in under 20 years? 1)His first retail venture was owning a Fruit Stand, which he quickly scaled to five. Learn the lessons he learned about cash flow, perishable fruit, and why hiring friends isn't always the answer. 2)His next big move was dropping out of first-year University as this wasn't his path. Doug joined his family's small collectible business as a warehouse helper making minimum wage. 3)Doug moved into sales, honed his ability to evaluate risk and reward, and his family let him try ideas and fail. 4)One day, an opportunity came from his top customer, Sunrise Records, and an owner that was retiring. That opportunity changed his life. Doug went from being their supplier to becoming their owner. 5)Today, Doug Putman is proving that retail is viable in Canada, United Kingdom and the USA, if you execute according to the lessons he has learned, and willingly shares. Please share with entrepreneurs, small business owners, those who aspire to be in charge of their own destiny and all who love retail.

Gäller devisen hellre röda siffror än svarta rubriker även hos bankerna? Kommer mängderna butiker minskas i samma takt som bankernas lokalkontor?

Her impressive variety of projects includes the Nomad Hotel and Bar in New York and its re-iteration in Las Vegas, the J.W. Marriott Nashville, and the iconic TWA Hotel at JFK Airport's historic TWA Flight Center. She has worked with renowned hospitality developers such as the Sydell Group, Eleven Madison Park's Chef Daniel Humm and Will Guidara, Marriott International, Turnberry Associates, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, and Hilton Hotels & Resorts.Show Intro:The Algonquin Hotel in New York was opened in 1902. Stories abound of the guests that stayed there and the fabled “Round Table” around which literary luminaries met daily to talk about all thing literature.The TWA terminal designed by the masterful architect Eero Sarinen opened in 1962 and has a history of its own aside from the groundbreaking design that made it an icon of the era.The Marriott Marquis in Time Square New York was the work of architect John Portman who created monumental interiors in concrete. The hotel's construction was first disclosed on November 3, 1972, and opened a little over ten years later.These projects have stood the test of time but been reinvigorated with major renovations in the past couple of years to bring them into a new era of hospitality that caters to an evolving cohort of travelers. It's no small thing to take a building and breath new life into it while not diminishing their cultural significance. Making them more effective in meeting the new need of guests while also paying due respect to the architects and histories they have lived has a plethora of challenges. Consultant teams can be as large as 100 different organizations, each with a specific mandate and areas of work. Building methodologies have changes, codes and regulations are stricter, materials and furniture options have proliferated. All of this adds to the challenge. And, when considering big design changes, board rooms are filled with questions like, “can we actually do that?”, “Should we do that”” “what message are we sending if we do that?”Sara Duffy is a principal at the hospitality focused design firm of Stonehill Taylor. Sara Duffy graduated from Ohio Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Arts in Art History and received her Associate of Applied Science in Interior Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. With a background in art history and television, Sara crafts a unique, immersive narrative for each of her projects with a focus on thoughtful, classic design.It is perhaps not so surprising that she was charged with playing a prominent role in leading the Algonquin, TWA, and Marriott Marquis projects through their revitalization bringing their stories from the past to the present.

In 2015, Brittany and Heather started Beautiful Fight Woodworking after Brittany wasn't able to maintain her job due to complications in her fight with a rare blood cancer. They had just enough money to buy a discounted miter saw, three 8-ft boards and only one design in mind. They slowly built one table at a time as they could afford to. Years later, they have filled hundreds of orders from small yard games to large dining sets, and furnishing full homes. They just celebrated their 1 year anniversary of owning their own brick and mortar space. You can follow along with Brittany and Heather on Instagram, Facebook, and their Website.
One of the principal tasks of starting a business is buying and developing a commercial space. Recently, Jen bought a new building for her marketing shop, Redhead, and an exciting new endeavor — Nelson Gallery. Redhead took the upstairs and Nelson lives below. Starting a new commercial project is never a cake walk, but when you factor in a global pandemic, well, it gets a tad more challenging. This episode we talk through the challenges faced and lessons learned from inventing, branding, and launching a successful new retail venture in downtown Lansing.
George Gottl is the chief creative officer and cofounder of UXUS, a strategic global design consultancy. But it's also much more than that. When Gottl and his team are working with a client—whether that's Sephora, H&M, or IHG—they are cultivating a one-of-a-kind experience. He honed this skill when he worked at Nike, which taught him how to craft ideas and tell a story. In fact, the former fashion designer has a soft spot for retail in particular. He used to own interiors store Relic in Los Angeles. It was a passion project of his that has extended to his work at UXUS. “Retail is a show,” he says, “and I love putting on a show.”

The COVID-19 pandemic brought the world to a halt in 2020. Every industry was affected, and retail real estate was hit particularly hard. As e-commerce continues to rise and brick and mortar stores are closing their doors, realty properties need to adapt and evolve.

KA's Senior Vice President of Development Matt Alexander, Director of Development Tim Marco, and Leasing Agent Dan Mossey discuss retail trends in real estate.

If you can distill retail down to a single principle, it's “supply versus demand.” And pricing is a key way to influence this demand and, most of all, consumer perception of your brand. But now more than ever, there are so many factors that are disrupting retailers' pricing strategies, including new competitors, new channels and new economic issues, such as inflation. How can brands and retailers effectively balance them all and still make the best decisions for their business — and their customers? Matthew Pavich of Revionics breaks down how to navigate this increasingly important space by sharing: How data and analytics can help brands manage consumer expectations and better respond to competitor pricing strategies; What role omnichannel services and fulfillment strategies play in pricing strategies; and The impact of inflation and supply chain constraints, especially leading into the holiday season.

Welcome back to Part 3 on our series of "Is Bourbon Broken?" as we analyze the multi-part blog series from Bourbon & Banter. This episode is one that many have been waiting for as we evaluate the variable that is completely out of our control as a consumer and that's distribution and retail. We've challenged this system multiple times and I'm not sure if we'll ever figure out the correct answer, but how do we make sure it's always working in favor of the consumer? How should distributors reward stores differently? What does the future of commerce look like? And should distributors and retailers be wary of the digital age?

Each state has its own laws on distribution, is this presenting a lot of challenges for the industry? How do you reward stores without making them take on a bunch of inventory in order to get allocated items? Do you feel that wholesalers and elected representatives are working for the benefit of the consumers? Do you think that it's fair that retailers own the product and can charge whatever they want? At the end of the day, everyone is still making their margin so why do retailers choose to mark it up? Why don't more retailers push back on distributors? Should distributors and retailers be scared about the future? Should we move to a system where highly desirable releases only happen through a distillery website?
There is no episode of Darknet Diaries this week. Instead we are going to play an episode from the podcast Cyber, by Vice Motherboard. See you with a new episode next week. Hacking. Hackers. Disinformation campaigns. Encryption. The Cyber. This stuff gets complicated really fast, but Motherboard spends its time embedded in the infosec world so you don't have to. Host Matthew Gault talks every week to Motherboard reporters Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai and Joseph Cox about the stories they're breaking and to the industry's most famous hackers and researchers about the biggest news in cybersecurity. This episode: How To Not Get Scammed In The Crypto Market A strange press release went out on September 13th. Retail giant Walmart, it seemed, would soon be accepting crypto currency. “The eCommerce giant intends to give its millions of shoppers across the world an opportunity to seamlessly make payments with cryptocurrencies,” the press release said.
