Although Michigan Consumer data in the U.S missed on Friday, broadly stronger data throughout the week helped fuel the Dollar Index to the highest level since August 1st, the day after the Fed cut.

As we forecast Macy’s 2019 free cash flow at more than $1 billion, we think its annual dividend cost of less than $500 million is manageable.
