Nordstrom's 4Q Profit More Than Doubles (NY Times): Carrying less inventory helped upscale retailer Nordstrom Inc. more than double its second-quarter profit compared with a year earlier, though it tempered its sales outlook for 2010 and its profit results fell slightly short of forecasts.
Lower Costs Lead Macy's To 4Q Profit (Crain's New York Business): Macy's Inc. returned to a fourth-quarter profit Tuesday as lower expenses helped the department store operator even as sales dipped.
Liz Claiborne quarterly sales, forecast miss view (Reuters): Liz Claiborne Inc. reported a fourth-quarter loss that matched analysts' expectations but sales and a first-quarter forecast that fell short, hurt by weak sales at wholesale and at its Mexx store chain.
