The week ahead will be loaded with tech stocks such as Intuit
However, this week may ultimately belong to the retail sector as consumer magnets such as J.C. Penney
But it will be Gap
That's why 2004 was so important. It started off nicely too until earlier this month when the company announced that it would miss its July quarter profit guidance after suffering a 7% dip in comps last month.
So we already know that Gap's reflection come Thursday is going to be a denim dud. The real question here is whether July was simply an anomaly or whether the retailer continues to experience that weakness into August. The company has a long way to go before completing its turnaround. If you thought otherwise you simply fell into Gap's gap.
Where does Gap go from here? What would you do to reenergize the company? All this and more in the Gap Inc. discussion board. Only on Fool.com.
