U.S. trading hours will be shortened Friday, closing at 1 p.m.
Five Below Inc.: As Black Friday kicks off, Citigroup says it expects good things from the discount retailer, noting it is well stocked with "Frozen 2" merchandise, which could be a boon to traffic.
Walmart Inc.: The retail giant launched its holiday promotions this year on Oct. 25 with its "Early Deals Drop" -- more than a week ahead of the holiday deals launch the year before.
Amazon.com: The online retailer used the entire month of November this year as a holiday promotion period, with each weekend devoted to discounts, a hastened push given the shorter-than-usual period between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year.
Target Corp: The retailer's Black Friday Preview Sale earlier this month grew to two days this year from only one day last year. And Target says it quadrupled the number of deals during the sale.
