* OC Stock Market Update #25 – Retail, Cyber Monday, Amazon Prime Now
Stocks are down on the day across the board between -0.37% and -0.44%.
The drop in US equities comes after less than stunning retail numbers during the early holiday season.
Black Friday brick and mortar numbers trail last years by .2 Billion, dropping from .3 to .1 Billion.
This seems like a further sign that, despite what the brick and mortar retail chains have been saying pre-holiday, the cyber sales environment is continuing to take over the retail space.
Look at services like Amazon Prime Now! This holiday weekend I was scrambling to get a couple last minute gifts before a holiday party, but had no time to go shopping in the chaos.
I literally went online to and the gifts were delivered to my door within 2 hours. Guess how much that cost to ship? !!!! It was included in the Prime membership.
The day will come, if regulators allow, when drones will cut this delivery to a fraction of the time. I just used this Prime Now service this morning to do grocery shopping. There is a Sprouts bag waiting at my front door as we speak with spaghetti sauce for my dinner.
Don’t touch my spaghetti sauce!
Also weighing down markets is the increasing slow down of the Chinese economy which is putting a pinch on US exports.
