Retail, apparel, beauty and footwear stocks traded lower in 2007, hurt by increasing gas prices, a weaker labor market, and the sub-prime mortgage crisis. WWD tracked 175 companies from Dec. 31, 2006, through the last day of trading in 2007 and found 132 decliners and 43 gainers for the year. But even in a slumping economy, there were a few bright spots.
