1 Retailer That Still Looks Strong After Earnings

This summer has been a rough period for retailers reporting earnings results -- and Macy's (NYSE: M  ) was no exception. The department store surprised investors by logging its first quarter of shrinking sales growth in years. Was that drop just a sign of more weakness to come?

In the following video, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos argues that investors shouldn't get too worked up about Macy's second-quarter miss. The company was hurt by trends that were affecting the entire industry last quarter, and it has a good plan in place for going after growth for the remainder of 2013. Overall, Macy's looks like a good value in a struggling industry, he says.

The retail space is in the midst of the biggest paradigm shift since mail order took off at the turn of the last century. Only those most forward-looking and capable companies will survive, and they'll handsomely reward those investors who understand the landscape.
