A lot of B&M retailers have been up sharply at various points this week.

WMT was up 10+% yesterday after reporting good numbers, but has given back 2% or so today. WMT reported beating last years profit by 2 cents going from .98 to 1.00, but reported same stores sales up 2-3% and online sales up 50% YOY. WMT was already in record territory before the surge.

Foot Locker is up 24-25% today after reporting some kind of alliance with Nike.

Dick's Sporting Goods, after a being down 4% on Tuesday, is up 10+% over the last three days.

All is not good in retail as Williams Sonoma is down over 10% today after reporting disappointing numbers.

Over the last month or so retail stocks have appeared extremely volatile to me after reporting numbers - it takes very little to make a stock sink or shoot up.
