KBRA Releases Research – Coronavirus (COVID-19): Retail Sales Stabilize but Rising Cases Temper Outlook

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases research commenting on the recent recovery in retail sales data.

Retail sales activity rebounded in May and June with the reopening of nonessential commercial businesses that had been shuttered to control the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). But with confirmed daily cases again trending upward in much of the country as of mid-July, some states have already moved to pause or reverse reopening plans.

KBRA continues to monitor the implications of these developments and believes that significant further volatility may lie ahead for retail sales activity.
