Ausbiz – Have discretionary stocks hit a bottom?

In my recent interview with Ausbiz, I discussed the significant impact of rising inflation on renters and mortgage owners, leading to reduced discretionary spending. I provided insights into the macro landscape, noting inflation has risen to 4% and the employee living cost index is at 6.5%. Many retail businesses, such as Cettire (ASX: CTT) and Baby Bunting (ASX: BBN), are experiencing profit declines and multi-year lows in shares. The advertising sector also seems to be struggling as many businesses, including Seven West (ASX: SWM) and Nine Network (ASX:NEC), are also hitting multi-year lows.
