Best Growth Stocks To Buy Right Now: Nordstrom Inc.(JWN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Lange]

    The S&P 500 stock posting the largest daily percentage gain ahead of the close was Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) which traded up about 13% at $59.13. The stock’s 52-week range is $37.79 to $59.21. Volume was about 17 million compared to the daily average volume of 2.5 million.

  • [By Douglas A. McIntyre]

    Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE: JWN) may reopen plans for a leveraged buyout after good holiday results. According to The Wall Street Journal:

    Wall Street was in a great mood on Thursday, as favorable news on multiple fronts sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average to its first record close in eight months. Major benchmarks were generally up 1% after market participants responded to strong economic data on jobless claims, and rising optimism about the potential for a peaceful solution to the tariff-laden trade environment helped many Dow components disproportionately. However, some companies still had to deal with individual challenges that kept them from joining the rally. Stitch Fix (NASDAQ:SFIX), Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN), and Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY) were among the worst performers on the day. Here’s why they did so poorly.

  • [By Dan Caplinger]

    Nordstrom (NYSE:JWN) has suffered along with much of the rest of the retail industry for quite a while now, as changes in the ways shoppers like to shop have forced companies across the sector to adapt their business practices and adopt new technologies. Some had hoped that the upscale Seattle-based retailer would prove immune to those trends, but Nordstrom hasn’t escaped the resulting downward pressure. Now that it seems unlikely that the Nordstrom family will succeed in pulling off a leveraged buyout of the retailer, shareholders want to feel more confident about the future direction the company will take, especially as competitors have started to show signs of a recovery.
