Why Macy's Stock Is Sliding Today

Macy’s Inc (NYSE: M) is trading lower Wednesday in sympathy with Nordstrom Inc (NYSE: JWN) after the company announced worse-than-expected third-quarter financial results.

“Work is also underway to improve merchandise margin across the company and ensure we have the visibility and flexibility we need to serve our customers seamlessly, despite global supply chain challenges,” the Nordstrom CEO added.
