We’d like to invite Hedgeye clients to participate in a call we are hosting on Monday February 4th to explore the state of retail in Europe in advance of 4Q retail earnings. We’ll be co-hosting the call with Stacey Widlitz of SW Advisors www.staceywidlitz.com where she will give us her view on incremental changes we’re seeing with different brands in Europe, including promotional cadence vs. last year, and general selling trends overall. When we hosted a similar call with Stacey last quarter, her insights proved correct on GES, GPS and ANF. We’ll revisit those names, as well as the following on Monday…
local competition-Debenhams, John Lewis, Next, BHS, House of Fraser
fast fashion (Zara, H&A, Topshop)
We encourage you to send any questions in advance to , and we’ll be sure to both ask (anonymously) and answer for you on the call. Stacey will also be available for Hedgeye clients after the call to discuss trends in more detail.
We hope you can join us.
