Morgan Stanley is taking the Merry out of Christmas retail sales with a prediction that numbers are going to be way way way down from projected sales.  Offering the catchy title of “Expect Coal: We Predict the Weakest Holiday Since 2008”, the firm expects weak mall traffic, weak consumer confidence and ramped up promotions.  Summing it all, bleak outlook for retailers in their most anticipated season.  ho ho hum.
