Several footwear retailers are retreating after a company in the sector, DSW (DSW), reported weaker than expected fourth quarter results. DSW added that its comparative sales have fallen 5% during the first six weeks of the current quarter as sales trends have weakened. Others in the sector, including Steve Madden (SHOO), Genesco (GCO) and Brown Shoe Company (BWS), are falling significantly in the wake of DSW's results. However, in a note to investors earlier today, research firm Canccord recommended that investors use Steve Madden's weakness as a buying opportunity.
