"I think it is early to buy retailers. The damage is sever and we need some stabilization. I sold my long-term target position yesterday."

Well they may go down, but so far it has beat cash. My small WMT position is up 5% in a week. I also bought 500 shares of DKS at the open and sold it a couple of hours later for a 20% gain.
