  3. Despite Snowstorms, Many Retailers Posted Gains in January

    Retailers kicked off 2011 with better-than-expected sales in January, with some relying on discounts to clear merchandise left over from the holiday season. But while the results exceeded forecasts, analysts said there were challenges ahead as rising costs pare profits.

    Sales at stores open at least a year, a crucial indicator known as same-store sales, rose 4.2 percent in January compared with a 3.3 percent increase in the month a year ago and forecasts of 2.7 percent, according to a monthly tally of 28 retailers by Thomson Reuters. It said 68 percent of the retailers exceeded analysts’ forecasts.

    The month followed a holiday shopping season that was the strongest since 2006. But some analysts said that January in general was not considered a good bellwether month for the rest of the year.
