Holiday sales fall short of forecasts: NRF

The National Retail Federation said Friday that holiday sales increased 3 percent to $626.1 billion in November and December, falling short of the trade group’s forecast for 3.7 percent growth, as unseasonably warm weather and low prices weighed on results.

The news came shortly after the Commerce Department said retail sales posted an unexpected drop in December, falling 0.1 percent from the previous month. Compared with the prior year, December sales rose 2.2 percent, to $448.1 billion, according to the government data.

During the October to December period, total sales rose 1.8 versus the prior year, according to the department. Total sales for all of 2015 increased 2.1 percent, representing their weakest result since 2009, Reuters said.

“Make no mistake about it, this was a tough holiday season for the industry,” said NRF President Matthew Shay. “Weather, inventory challenges, advances in consumer technology and the deep discounts that started earlier in the season and that have carried into January presented stiff headwinds.”

“Despite these factors, the industry rallied, consumers responded and sales still grew at a healthy rate.”

How the industry generated this growth, however, remained a top concern among analysts. They cautioned that profitability will likely take a hit when retailers start rolling out their fourth-quarter earnings results in coming weeks, thanks to aggressive discounts.

“Knowing that the topline growth was fueled by promotions tells us that the real number for us to focus on is. the individual bottom-line results for retailers, because that’s where we’re going to see the real profitability numbers,” said Steve Barr, PwC’s U.S. retail and consumer leader.

Industry forecasts had called for modest sales growth this holiday season, as low gas prices and a stronger economy battled against muted wage gains and higher rent and health-care costs. Retailers that cater to middle-income shoppers faced even more headwinds, including price deflation and a shift in consumer spending toward dining out or travel.

As a result, the National Retail Federation predicted retail sales excluding autos, gas and restaurants would increase 3.7 percent in November and December, compared with the prior year’s 4.1 percent growth.

In the same vein, consulting firm AlixPartners forecast holiday sales (excluding motor vehicles, food services and dining, and gas stations) would rise 2.8 to 3.4 percent during the final two months of the year, compared with 4.4 percent growth in 2014.

And Deloitte, whose prediction covers the November through January period (but excludes motor vehicles and gasoline) predicted a 3.5 to 4 percent increase. That would mark a slowdown from its recorded 5.2 percent gain the prior year.

As the season progressed, however, analysts grew more pessimistic that sales would meet these forecasts. Despite retailers’ best efforts to get shoppers into their stores earlier, November got off to a slow start. Then, over the critical Black Friday weekend, ShopperTrak data indicated that sales fell an estimated 10.4 percent.

What’s more, unseasonably warm weather through December took a huge bite out of retailers’ traffic and sales, with Planalytics calculating a $572 million sales loss for specialty apparel stores during the final two months. That figure does not even take into account department stores, which also rely heavily on apparel. In its holiday sales release, Macy’s blamed 80 percent of its 4.7 percent same-store sales decline on cold-weather goods.

Retailers including Gap. Urban Outfitters. Best Buy and Zumiez also struggled during the holiday period. On the flip side, strength from names including Lululemon. L Brands. Five Below. The Children’s Place and Express revived hopes that retail sales would come in line with early forecasts. Ken Perkins, president of Retail Metrics, told CNBC last week that early results were coming in “better than feared.”

Among the troubled categories, sales at electronics and appliance stores fell 2.4 percent over the past 12 months, while department store revenues dropped 2 percent, according to the Commerce Department. Sales at clothing and accessories stores increased 2.1 percent, likely due to steep discounts and strong trends in athletic apparel, Barr said.

Online sales continued to be a standout, though softer-than-expected results from desktop computers caused preliminary numbers at comScore to come in just shy of expectations. The analytics firm said last week that it now expects overall online sales to increase 13 percent, compared with its forecast for 14 percent growth.

According to the NRF, online sales grew 9 percent to $105 billion.

“I think the news from today really tells us that we’re at a tipping point,” Barr said Friday. “The consumer will spend with the retailers that have the right products and the right experiences both in-store and online, but there’s a separation occurring.”

He added that he expects that separation to flow through to individual retailers’ respective profitability.

“The high-performers on the topline, we expect them to report strong [earnings] results because they were the retailers that did not have to play the promotion game.”

On the flip side, Marcum’s Ron Friedman said the retailers who routinely offered 50 to 70 percent off will suffer. He did, however, predict some of these companies will nonetheless manage to eke out a profit, as a result of cost savings.

“It’s nothing to see 70 percent discounts, which means the stores are selling [the product] for less than cost,” he said. “They’re just turning over inventory to create cash flow.”

Investors will have a better indication of which retailers outperformed — and underperformed — come February, when major companies release their fourth-quarter earnings. Analysts remain cautious on companies with exposure to apparel, particularly as it relates to their profitability.

“[Retail’s] earnings growth is still limited,” Perkins said.

Correction: NRF revised its initial report. This story has been updated to reflect that holiday sales increased to $626.1 billion.

In 2017 zal op 25 november op dezelfde dag als de Teamrit Kaartlezen voor het eerst ook een Teamrit Klassiek worden georganiseerd.

In afwijking van wat tot nu toe gebruikelijk was, vindt de Teamrit niet plaats in december, dit in verband met de speciale wegenbelastingregeling voor classic auto s welke eindigt in november van een kalenderjaar.

Hoewel op deze datum de Bevelandrit stond gepland kan nu dankzij de positieve medewerking van GAC De Krabbenrijders de teamrit toch op 25 november worden gezet.

Meer informatie over de gecombineerde Teamritten volgt later. De organisatie zal in handen zijn van ASC De Baronierijders.

Hoe vaak moet je iets uitleggen voordat je het zelf onthoudt? In deze rubriek heb ik al verschillende keren uit de doeken gedaan hoe het zit met terug via de oude weg , al dan niet in combinatie met een 8-vormige omrijroute, dus je zou zeggen dat ik dan zelf ook weet hoe daar mee om te gaan.

Infant/Child Mental Health, Early Intervention
and Relationship-Based Therapies

Welcome

The explosion of interest in child development across both research and clinical arenas has dramatically expanded our knowledge and provided exciting advances in assessment and intervention. At the same time, this progress has also brought ever-increasing fragmentation in service delivery systems, theoretical formulations, and even diagnostic nomenclatures. Currently, a number of concerns affecting both research and practice can be directly traced to this fragmentation, including: competing definitions of the meaning of a child’s problem behaviors; assumptions of a singular cause with discipline specific solutions rather than multiple causes with cross-disciplinary solutions; and treatment of the child in isolation from the context of family relationships and other extenuating circumstances. If these concerns are to be adequately addressed, there is a pressing need for an approach that respects and integrates the specialized knowledge from various disciplines, while encompassing various systems of care, to ensure more efficient service delivery.

Infant/Child Mental Health, Early Intervention, Relationship-Based Therapies: A Neurorelational Framework for Interdisciplinary Practice directly addresses this lack of cohesion among disciplines. Connie Lillas and Janiece Turnbull offer a unifying, interdisciplinary framework based on current neuroscience research into how infants and children develop in the context of relationships and their surroundings. This conceptual framework is organized according to four brain systems, each representing a set of individual and relational functions that acknowledges the unique contributions from each discipline, while also presenting guiding principles that are applicable across disciplines and methods of theory and practice. The authors also offer specific, practical applications of their approach throughout the book to assist in assessment and intervention: each brain system includes clearly defined treatment strategies as well as a case study drawn from and based on the authors’ clinical practice.

The next advance in working with at-risk infants, children, and families calls for true collaboration. Ideally, each infant, child, and caregiver should have the opportunity to benefit from integrated professional knowledge and a stable yet adaptive set of shared goals for treatment, within a setting that appreciates each child or family member as a unique individual within a unique social and environmental context. Infant/Child Mental Health, Early Intervention, Relationship-Based Therapies offers an innovative and relevant framework for achieving that goal.

This is a timely book and offers us all a chance to do better work for children and families.

I found the Lillas and Turnbull chapters to be a refreshing new approach to collaborative service delivery. The concept of a Neurorelational Framework with different brain systems makes sense, I believe, to all practitioners…The explanation of the four brain systems was very relevant to my current practice as a school psychologist, LEP, and educational therapist and it puts a whole new light on understanding and putting together other specialist’s roles in assessment and intervention for the child. It brings the part-to-whole model into perspective.

This book is visionary! The authors have brought a depth of understanding to child mental health that is informed by their creativity, brilliance, and unwillingness to be confined to the views of any one discipline. Their work elaborates a new analytic model capable of integrating data critical to diagnosis and treatment as never before. The book offers exciting opportunities for meaningful collaboration in this complex field.

Holiday sales fall short of forecasts: NRF

The National Retail Federation said Friday that holiday sales increased 3 percent to $626.1 billion in November and December, falling short of the trade group’s forecast for 3.7 percent growth, as unseasonably warm weather and low prices weighed on results.
