Why These Retailers' Stocks Fell This Week

·3-min read

Five Below (NASDAQ: FIVE), Ross Stores (NASDAQ: ROST), and The Container Store (NYSE: TCS) fell 12%, 9%, and 16%, respectively, through Thursday trading compared to a 3.2% decline in the wider S&P 500, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. The drops added to big declines for these stocks, which are all down by more than 35% so far in 2022. It came as investors began to worry more about rising inventory risks ahead of a potential downturn in consumer spending. Smaller specialty retailers like Five Below might be more exposed to these margin pressures that are coming from supply chain challenges and generally rising prices.
