Stocks Are Up…What About Sales?

by Steve Pruitt

Q: The stock market and consumer confidence are picking up. Are these signs of a unilateral increase in sales for this month?

A: We are seeing a pickup in business, but it is gradual. We expect the trend over the next 6 months to be up 5% to 6% That being said, the range will be even to up 12%. The great marketers will be on the top end.
