Deep Dive: 11 retailers still thriving as Amazon threatens on all fronts

With another earnings season almost finished, it’s time to look beyond the typically gloomy results for retailers and find the winners.

Among S&P 500 SPX, -0.03% companies, there are 35 retailers, according to FactSet. That includes Amazon.com Inc. AMZN, +0.09% which stands apart since it derives nearly all of its sales from the internet. It’s easy to think Amazon completely dominates U.S. retail, but that’s not really true.

Combined sales for the most recently reported quarter (through March 8) for the 35 S&P 500 retailers were $457.6 billion. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. WMT, +0.37% contributed 29% of those sales.
