What's Inside

Our weekly Earnings Insights reports feature highlights from recent management commentary at major US retailers within our Coresight 100 coverage list, as they report fourth-quarter 2021 earnings.

We condense what retail companies are reporting regarding the following key content:

  • How recent performance reflects the impacts of, or recovery from, the Covid-19 pandemic
  • The outlook for demand, as reflected in revenue guidance or more qualitative commentary
