The article reports on the concerns of high prices consumer businesses on consumer resiliency in the U.S. The resiliency of the consumer is the source of strength for the economy, however, it may not be ideal for the peak prices investors are paying. Investors have been worried because they see more leverage going into deals and when it is coupled with the obstacles facing the consumer, the debt levels would not jibe with the sector's historic volatility.
