Apparel and shoe sales showing signs of recovery

Despite many retailers talking about headwinds in discretionary spending, apparel and footwear brands appear to be defying the odds this season.

In its earnings report this afternoon, Ross Stores reported that same-store sales rose 3% in the most recent quarter, in line with both the company’s guidance and Wall Street expectations. This comes after many apparel companies reported strong same-store sales, including Ralph Lauren, up 6%, Urban Outfitters, up 2.6%, and TJX, up 3.5%. Even Target noted that its overall sales were down, but that apparel was a bright spot.

Meanwhile, HOKA and UGG sales beat expectations, and Deckers reported big earnings and revenue gains this afternoon, with total revenue up 21% compared to the same period last year, while Shoe Carnival reported a 6% sales increase earlier this morning, beating the company’s expectations and beating analysts’ predictions.

Coinbase surges in after-hours trading as SEC opens door to Ethereum ETF

Coinbase rose 5% in after-hours trading after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission approved rule changes that pave the way for an ETF that buys and holds Ethereum. Robinhood rose 2%.

While both companies offer cryptocurrency trading, Coinbase may stand to gain more from the introduction of an Ethereum ETF as it offers other crypto services such as custody and staking, as well as a wider selection of tradable assets. Coinbase also operates a blockchain called Base, which is built on the Ethereum network.

Ethereum prices were up just 2% on Thursday evening, after rising more than 20% in two days earlier this week on investor optimism over the SEC decision and now on track for its strongest week in more than a year.
