Many investors are opting to avoid the retail sector like the plague right now due to the rise of e-commerce disruptors like Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN). While many traditional retailers are suffering due to the disruption caused by digital retailers, there are brick-and-mortar retailers that continue to thrive despite harsh industry-wide headwinds.

Although I do believe e-commerce will continue to become larger as time goes on, I think investors could be missing out on deep-value opportunities by shunning the entire retail industry. There are some traditional retailers out there with capable management teams who are more than able to fight off the rising threat of e-commerce. And, in some cases, the traditional retailer may have a wide enough moat to prevent such digital retailers from stealing its piece of the pie.

Mobile-app errors expose data on 180 million phones: security firm

  Mobile-app errors expose data on 180 million phones: security firm The findings highlight new threats posed by the increasing use of third-party services such as Twilio that provide mobile apps with functions like text messaging and audio calls. Developers can inadvertently introduce security vulnerabilities if they do not properly code or configure such services.“This isn't just limited to Twilio. It's a common problem across third-party services," Hardy said. "We often notice that if they make a mistake with one service, they will do so with other services as well.”Many apps use Twilio to send text messages, process phone calls and handle other services.

Consider Canadian Tire Corporation Limited (TSX:CTC.A), an automotive, sport & leisure, and hardware retailer which is a household name across Canada.

One could argue that the hardware and auto retail segments are somewhat immune the e-commerce retailers. Sure, hardware and auto retailers have fared better compared to other retailers, but that’s not the only reason why Canadian Tire is the arguably the best Canadian retail stock to own for the long term and why the stock has soared ~14% over the past year.

“Canadian Tire is one of the oldest surviving retailers in Canada and, as a result, has developed a strong base of retail locations that offer a convenient shopping trip for most Canadian consumers,” says Peter Sklar, analyst at BMO Capital Markets. “We find many of Canadian Tire’s private-label brands have such strong awareness that many Canadians believe they are national brands.”

It's Official: Amazon Is Making a 'Lord of the Rings' TV Series

  It's Official: Amazon Is Making a 'Lord of the Rings' TV Series Amazon just landed the One TV Show to Rule Them All: The streaming service will produce a series based on J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" books. There are few details to go on right now, but Deadline reports that "the television adaptation will explore new storylines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Fellowship of the Ring,'" the first novel in the three-book series, and there is potential to develop a spin-off show as well. The project will have big shoes to fill, following Peter Jackson's Oscar-winning film series, which nabbed the Academy Award for Best Picture for 2003's "The Return of the King." According to Deadline, this deal came together thanks to Amazon's quest to produce a fantasy hit on par with HBO blockbuster "Game of Thrones," and CEO Jeff Bezos himself was reportedly personally involved in the negotiations. The project already has a multi-season commitment, though there are no scripts yet, nor any writers, directors, or stars attached. What the series does have, however, is an eye-popping price tag, with Deadline reporting that the rights for the franchise alone cost in the $200 to $250 million range -- and that's before any production costs or cast salaries are factored in. As has been reported previously, this age of Peak TV comes at a hefty price, and according to Deadline, this deal could make Amazon's take on "LOTR" the most expensive series ever.

It’s easy for most of us Canadians to simply drive five minutes to the nearest Canadian Tire to pick up the auto or hardware device we’re looking for. And Canadian Tire is known to sell huge items that wouldn’t make too much sense to deliver, as the costs would be off the charts. Since there’s a Canadian Tire store in close proximity to the average Canadian, the convenience of the short trip often outweighs the benefits from ordering the same item online and potentially paying a great deal in shipping costs.

Canadian Tire’s brands have been “tested for life in Canada,” according to the company’s new marketing campaign. MotoMaster and Mastercraft are two such brands developed by Canadian Tire that many Canadians trust, and they’re only available at Canadian Tire locations.

Doug Stephens, founder of Retail Prophet, stated that Canadian Tire has “…done little to become a true online competitor,” and the results thus far have been sound. Going forward, management intends to beef up its digital presence as it further solidifies its moat against the likes of Amazon.

Vancouver driver busted for attaching cellphone, tablet to steering wheel

  Vancouver driver busted for attaching cellphone, tablet to steering wheel A motorist gets a ticket and a "lengthy" talk about road safety after a Vancouver police officer sees him driving with an iPhone and a tablet attached to his steering wheel. The Vancouver Police Department's traffic unit tweeted a photo of the elaborate setup. The cellphone — hooked up to a charger — appeared to be attached to the wheel with zipties. The tablet seemed to be wedged in between them. "Can't make it up," an officer wrote.

Bottom line

Mr. Sklar believes that Canadian Tire will “…prove to be more immune to the threat of Amazon than investors anticipate,” and I couldn’t agree more. Although Canadian Tire has been delivering outstanding results of late, many investors are still shunning the stock just because it’s a retailer. I think that’s a mistake, since Canadian Tire has a huge moat that Amazon will have a tough time penetrating over the next few years.

Canadian Tire is a retailer with staying power, so investors should strongly consider adding a position to their portfolio today. The company continues to stand head and shoulders above most in the industry.

Stay smart. Stay hungry. Stay Foolish.

Google reportedly wants to take on Amazon’s audiobook business

  Google reportedly wants to take on Amazon’s audiobook business Amazon has long dominated the audiobook market online with Audible, which sells retail titles and also offers subscriptions to its service. Now, it looks like Google might be getting in on the game with the impending introduction of audiobooks in the Play Store. Android Police noted in a teardown of the code of an upcoming version of the Google Play store app that there’s a new category called ‘audiobooks’. However, it remains to be seen whether Google will sell them in the Play store, or whether it will eventually build out a separate app to list and play these titles, as the code presently doesn’t include new screens for audiobook listings.
