In today's Consumer Countdown, consumer goods analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly join host Mark Reeth to discuss all the biggest events in their sector over the last few days.
First the guys take a look back at last week and the comments made by lululemon athletica founder Chip Wilson about how "some women's bodies... don't work." In addition, Target admitted last week that it accidentally shipped 150 Microsoft Xbox Ones to some lucky gamers, so the consumer goods team will take a look at both events and how they'll affect these companies.
Then, the analysts will discuss the newest deal between Disney's Marvel and Netflix, in which Netflix will stream several brand-new Marvel Universe shows. In similar deal news, Amazon has announced that it will work with the USPS to deliver Amazon orders on Sundays. What does this mean for competitors FedEx and UPS?
Finally, the team turns to earnings news and analyzes News Corp.'s first quarterly earnings since being spun off from Twenty-First Century Fox. Then they look ahead to Thursday, when Wal-Mart and Nordstrom will both be making their earnings announcements.
