What’s Next For Kohl’s Stock?
Share this @internewscast.com

Kohl’s stock (NYSE: KSS), a department store that features apparel, footwear, accessories, soft home products, and housewares targeted to middle-income customers, has increased by 15% over the last five trading days (one week) and currently stands at around $31. There was no particular news on which the stock saw gains, but KSS stock has, in general, been volatile through this year, due to prevailing macr0 headwinds. Last week, Walmart (NYSE : WMT) announced that it expects lower earnings through the second half of 2022, mainly because inflation is impacting consumers’ behavior. Kohl’s stock plunged around 15% after that announcement sent shockwaves through the retail industry, but seems to have recovered from that fall over the last five days. It wasn’t a good start for Kohl’s in 2022 – with comparable-store sales declining 5%. Since challenges with supply chain issues and too much inventory still remain prevalent in Q2, investors are concerned Kohl’s will also lower its outlook once again when it announces its second-quarter results on August 18. It is quite likely that the company will see a period of weaker earnings in the upcoming quarter results as investors grow more concerned about slowing consumer spending patterns.
