    By Phillip Woolgar - July 30, 2013 | Tickers: AEO, ROST, BKE

    With the economy in a steady upswing, many people are worried that the stock market is in a bubble that's about the burst. While I am not one of those individuals, it doesn't hurt to be a little cautious and buy stocks that will pad your portfolio in case of a fall.

    Clothing-related firms come to mind as companies that will do well even during a recession. Everyone more »

  • Buy This Discount Retailer

    By Michael Douglass - July 30, 2013 | Tickers: AMZN, ROST, TJX

    TJX (NYSE: TJX), the owner of the TJ Maxx and Marshalls concepts, is the biggest discount retailer in the United States. Even with its dominant position, I see tremendous opportunity for growth due to smart capital allocation and strategic decisions – far more so than competitor Ross Stores (NASDAQ: ROST). While Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) is a danger to many retailers, I do not view it as a significant threat to more »

  • Discount Retail at a Deep Discount

    By Marshall Hargrave - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: KSS, ROST, TJX

    The biggest benefactors of the recent struggles of J.C. Penney should be the off-price retailers, as these retailers have snatched up the majority of Penney's lost market share. Let's take a look at them. 

    Kohl's (NYSE: KSS) is one of the major discount department stores, operating some 1,127 stores in 49 states. Kohl's and its peers, Ross Stores (NASDAQ: ROST) and The TJX Companies more »

  • Dressing Profits: 3 Long-Term Clothing Stores

    By Victor Selva - July 5, 2013 | Tickers: ANF, JCP, ROST, TJX

    Quality, price, and trends are three key parameters taken into account when shopping for clothes. Choices then, are wider or more limited according to one's budget. Let us look at a department store, TJX (NYSE: TJX), a discount store, Ross Stores (NASDAQ: ROST), and, a teen’s brand, Abercrombie & Fitch, (NYSE: ANF).

  • I Still "Like The Way" This Retailer Looks

    By Leo Sun - June 20, 2013 | Tickers: JOSB, ROST, MW

    Shares of formal wear retailer Men’s Wearhouse (NYSE: MW) came under pressure recently, after the company unexpectedly ousted its founder and Executive Chairman, George Zimmer. Zimmer was the founder and the face of the company over the past four decades, best known for his tagline, “You’re going to like the way you look. I guarantee it.”

    The company offered no formal explanation regarding the termination, and abruptly postponed more »

  • Is This Retailer Still Cheap?

    By Lee Samaha - June 14, 2013 | Tickers: JCP, ROST, TJX

    The U.S. economy remains in slow and unspectacular recovery mode, but this fact should not deter investors. Making money in the markets is not just about buying/selling stocks in line with the economy but, in my opinion, more about finding stocks that can surprise on the upside within an understanding of the future economic climate.

    I think the off-price retailers are a good example of the sort of more »

  • It’s Hard To Discount This Type Of Performance

    By Chad Henage - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: KSS, ROST, TGT, TJX | Editor's Choice

    Who would have thought that a company that sells things other stores don’t want could be such a good investment? I guess in hindsight anyone could have seen this, as The TJX Companies (NYSE: TJX) have been in the business for years. While The TJX Companies could be a good investment in its own right, the company I believe investors should check into immediately is Ross Stores (NASDAQ: ROSTmore »)

  • 3 Apparel Retail Stocks that May Catch Your Attention

    By Damian Illia - June 6, 2013 | Tickers: LTD, ROST, TJX

    Although the apparel retail segment is not expected to outperform the market, some companies have survived and even benefited from the last economic crisis and now stand in considerably strong positions to benefit from various expansion opportunities. In this article I will look at TJX Companies (NYSE: TJX), Ross Stores (NASDAQ: ROST) and L Brands (NYSE: LTD), three firms in the industry that offer compelling and sustainable growth prospects for more »

  • 2 Financially Strong Retailers To Buy Now

    By Joseph Harry - June 5, 2013 | Tickers: FL, ROST, FINL

    Is the U.S. retail industry healing? Opinions vary. Statistics provided by the International Council of Shopping Centers, or ICSC, claimed that April retail sales rose 2.7% year-over-year, while the National Retail Federation (NRF) found that sales increased 4.6% year-over-year in that same time period. NRF CEO Matt Shay opined that:

  • This Retailer Has 4 Major Problems

    By Chad Henage - June 3, 2013 | Tickers: KSS, M, ROST, TGT

    There is no question that the retail business is difficult. In the last several years, customers have seen companies like Circuit City, Borders, and others disappear. What these companies had in common was, they were trying to compete with more efficient companies. While Circuit City and Borders competed in the electronics and books business, an industry that is ripe for a company to disappear is the clothing and home goods more »

  • Buy This Retailer Anytime It Goes on Sale

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - May 29, 2013 | Tickers: KSS, ROST, TJX

    "I had no idea TJ Maxx was so amazing!" crowed my daughter after a whirlwind shopping spree getting her first career wardrobe for a NYC internship.

    I had to agree. All the pricey designer clothes we would never pay retail for were there. On a Saturday evening the place was packed, the line was some thirty strong to check out, and they were opening up another register for the crush more »

  • Will This Retailer Outgrow its Competition?

    By Leo Sun - May 22, 2013 | Tickers: JCP, M, JWN, ROST, TJX

    After consumer confidence and retail sales rebounded in April, Wall Street has turned bullish on U.S. retail stocks. Despite weaker-than-expected earnings from Wal-Mart earlier this month, many investors still believe that upscale department stores, such as Nordstrom (NYSE: JWN), Dillard’s and Macy’s (NYSE: M) will continue growing as they bleed their lower-end peers J.C. Penney (NYSE: JCP) and Sears Holdings dry.

    Although Wall Street had high more »

  • Buy The Specialty Retailers And Not The Department Stores

    By Mark Yagalla - May 22, 2013 | Tickers: ANN, FL, ROST, TJX

    With the all the troubles that the big box department stores like J.C. Penney and Sears have had over the years, investors are better off focusing on the smaller specialty retailers. These retailers are focused and don't need new management to implement possible turnarounds. I'm a fan of companies that identify a niche and look to exploit that niche. To me this is a better strategy than more »

  • 3 Reasons to Buy This Retailer

    By Robert Baillieul - May 15, 2013 | Tickers: JCP, ROST, TJX

    With TJX Companies (NYSE: TJX) braking out to new all-time highs, it's understandable if investors are hesitant to buy shares at these prices. Luckily for us, there're plenty of reasons to consider picking up TJX.

    Great growth story

    TJX sits in a retail sweet spot by offering sought-after clothing and home furnishing brands at discount prices. And while the company has delivered 18% compounded earnings growth over the more »

  • This Discount Department Store Chain Could Pay Off

    By Matthew Frankel - May 14, 2013 | Tickers: DDS, JCP, KSS, ROST

    One of the largest department store chains in the United States, Kohl’s Corp (NYSE: KSS) has over 1,100 locations.  However, even with the tremendous rally in stocks this year, Kohl’s is still about 15% below its 52-week high, and even further below the $80-level where it was trading before the financial crisis.  With a dividend yield of almost 3%, very solid and consistent revenue growth, and cheap more »

  • 3 Apparel Stocks You Must Consider

    By Madhukar Dubey - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: ARO, KSS, ROST

    The apparel industry is all set for a challenging yet interesting 2013. In terms of cashing in on the opportunities, the industry needs to improve its flexibility in the supply chain, improvise designs, and innovate, along with retaining thin margins. Increasing production costs and slow volume growth further intensify the challenges.

    In this article, I have picked up three apparel stocks, Aeropostale (NYSE: ARO), Ross Stores (NASDAQ: ROST), and Kohl more »

  • Specialty Retail's Best Kept Secret

    By Marshall Hargrave - April 20, 2013 | Tickers: JCP, M, ROST, TJX

    The apparel industry should be just one of the benefactors of a rebounding economy. I believe that "value priced" retailers could be the best-in-industry performers given their advantages, including their attractive discount pricing and ability to quickly move in and out of product categories based on customer demand. 
     
    There has also been a reduction in take home pay as a result of the payroll tax holiday expiration, which should play more »

  • 4 Reasons To Consider This Retailer

    By Chad Henage - April 10, 2013 | Tickers: ROST, TGT, TJX, WMT

    I find it hard to resist following quite a few retail stocks. While it's true that retailers can fall in and out of favor, the great thing for investors is their businesses are relatively easy to understand. This is part of what attracts me to Ross Stores (NASDAQ: ROST). The company has a great concept, is executing well, and seems to scream "buy."

  • Can Retail Therapy Make Your Portfolio Happy?

    Bad day at work, spat with your sweetie, kids giving you grief. What to do? Well, it turns out most of us shop. This should comes as no surprise but shopping makes us feel better. According to a survey performed for eBates retail therapy makes 63.9% of women and 39.8% of men happier. I was surprised about the number for men but apparently they like shopping for food more »
