    Target's price cuts on 'thousands' of items sinks retailer stocks

    Retailer stocks took a midday dive Friday, after Target Corp. said on its website that it had "lowered prices on thousands of items," fueling concerns over a price war amid a lackluster sales environment. Target's stock was down about 1.5% just before its announcement, but losses widened to 3.2% in afternoon trade. The discount retailer said the price cuts are an attempt to end customer uncertainty over the timing of discounts on certain products. "We want our guests to feel a sense of satisfaction every time they shop at Target," Chief Merchandising Officer Mark Tritton said in a statement. "Part of that is removing the guesswork to ensure they feel confident they're getting a great, low price every day." Shares of rival Wal-Mart Stores Inc. went from down 1.2% just before Target's announcement to down 2%. Elsewhere, shares of Kohl's Corp. shed 1%, J.C. Penney Co. Inc. gave up 1.7%, Macy's Inc. lost 1.4% and Nordstrom Inc. fell 0.5%. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF went from a loss of 0.4% to a decline of 1.3%, before recovering to be down 0.8%.

    J.C. Penney's stock suffering worst 5-day stretch in over 45 years

    Shares of J.C. Penney Co. Inc. dropped 3.9% in morning trade Tuesday, putting them on track to close at a third-straight record low since the department store chain reported a wider-than-expected second-quarter loss. The stock has now plunged 32.7% amid a 5-session losing streak, the worst 5-day stretch since the stock began trading in January 1972, according to an analysis of FactSet data. J.C. Penney has been trying to fend off the "Amazon effect" which has led to several bankruptcies of brick-and-mortar retailers, by closing stores and focusing on categories such as appliances, but data within the July government retail sales report suggested that Penney's efforts may be for naught. The report said department store sales fell 3.9% from a year ago and electronics and appliance store sales declined 0.5%, while nonstore retailer sales rose 11.5%. The stock has now tumbled 56% year to date, while the SPDR S&P Retail ETF has shed 12% and the S&P 500 has gained 10%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
