StockCall.com Provides Stock Research on Staples Inc., Office Depot Inc., Costco Wholesale Corp., and Dollar Tree Inc.

New York City, New York -- (May 14, 2013)

A report released by the Commerce Department on Monday showed that retail sales in the U.S. rose unexpectedly. The better-than-expected retail sales data highlights the fact that consumer spending has remained resilient despite the expiration of payroll tax cuts at the start of this year. Consumer spending is expected to remain strong as the labor market continues to recover. This augurs well for specialty retailers such as Staples Inc. (NASDAQ: SPLS) and Office Depot Inc. (NYSE: ODP), and discount and variety store operators such as Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ: COST) and Dollar Tree Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR). Shares of specialty retailers and discount and variety store operators ended on a mixed note on Monday as the broad market struggled for direction.
