Retail earnings and consumer spending

Investors will learn more about the ongoing impact of the pandemic on the consumer economy as retailers prepare to release quarterly earnings reports, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Friday.

The industry will have its time in the Wall Street spotlight after the Commerce Department announced on Friday that retail sales were flat in April, up 10.7% in March.

“Next week is about consumer spending, whether at home, outside or in the mall,” said the host of “Mad Money”. “Before betting on which retailer is doing the best, you need to consider where their stocks come from as some of them have overrun while others still have room to catch up.”

Cramer announced his schedule for the coming week. The earnings per share forecasts are based on FactSet estimates:
