Cautious Consumers Cloud Retail Outlook

We caught up with Kimberly Greenberger and Jay Sole, on the sidelines of Morgan Stanley's annual Consumer & Retail Conference in New York, to get their takes on the holiday shopping season, strong and weak categories, and the outlook for 2016.

The year-end holiday shopping season is often a key barometer of how consumers are feeling about the state of their financial health and outlook for next year, and critical for retailers trying to close the year on a strong note. Our analysts discuss how consumers are feeling, retail strategies to boost sales, potential headwinds from rising interest rates, and what trends may have staying power globally.
