  • Earnings Play: Four Companies In Focus

    By Jayson Derrick - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: HD, JCP, TJX, WHR

    While traders look at earning season as an opportunity to make a quick buck, long term investors take the opportunity to listen to management, re-evaluate the company and gain a better insight if now is a good time to add more shares, or to sell.

    Data from US Census Bureau foreshadowing strong results?

    Home Depot (NYSE: HD) is expected to report 2Q13 earnings on Tuesday, August 20. The First Call more »

  • Will a Poor Back-to-School Shopping Season Spell Trouble For These Stocks?

    By Bob Ciura - July 31, 2013 | Tickers: ODP, OMX, SPLS, TJX

    It’s no secret that the U.S. economy has been slow to recover from the worst recession since the Great Depression. The ongoing sequester, payroll tax hike, and the frustratingly slow-to-improve labor market should have been enough evidence to convince investors that the American consumer is in a tough spot.

    Investors have gleefully bought stocks, including those tied to the health of the consumer, over the past several weeks 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 (NASDAQ: AMZN) is a danger to many retailers, I do not view it as a significant threat to more »

  • 4 Department Stores for Your Portfolio

    By Damon Churchwell - July 30, 2013 | Tickers: DDS, M, TJX, WMT

    Department stores appear to be good investments as we approach their earnings release dates. Several are achieving comparable-store sales gains, while others are growing their location counts at solid profitability. Moreover, the companies tend to return cash to shareholders in the form of dividends and repurchases, to a greater extent than in other industries. Lastly, the stocks look appealing at their current valuations.

  • 3 Strong Strategic Retailers

    By Dan Moskowitz - July 26, 2013 | Tickers: KSS, TGT, TJX

    Many analysts are neutral on Kohl’s (NYSE: KSS). But a stock isn’t likely to remain in a tight trading range for any significant period of time. Therefore, Kohl's will either be a good or bad investment at today's price. Perhaps, TJX Companies (NYSE: TJX) or Target (NYSE: TGT) could present better long-term opportunities.

  • 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).

  • Should You Imitate This Insider Purchase?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - June 30, 2013 | Tickers: COST, KSS, TJX, WMT

    A recent filing with the SEC has disclosed that Nina Vaca, a member of the Board of Directors at Kohl’s (NYSE: KSS), purchased about 1,600 shares of the company’s stock in late June at prices ranging from about $49.50 to about $51 per share.

  • This CEO Is Back Permanently And That's Great News

    By Mark Yagalla - June 29, 2013 | Tickers: M, SMRT, TJX

    With all the controversy over at Men's Wearhouse surrounding its founder George Zimmer, it's comforting for investors in Stein Mart (NASDAQ: SMRT) to know that they don't have to deal with that issue. Jay Stein is no longer interim CEO, but rather the permanent CEO. He has been chairman since 1989 and was CEO from 1990 to 2001.

  • Why Barron's Is Right on Big Lots

    By John Macris - June 28, 2013 | Tickers: BIG, SMRT, TJX

    As the market has rallied to all-time highs and valuations have expanded, finding bargains has become harder to come by. When pressed for value, should investors turn to the same company in the stock market as they do in the real world?

    Barron’s Magazine recently made a bullish case for Big Lots (NYSE: BIG), which attracted my attention.

  • Will These Retail Companies Succeed in Gaining Major Market Share?

    By Shweta Dubey - June 28, 2013 | Tickers: JCP, M, TJX

    When analyzing a company’s growth potential, one of the key things to consider is its industrial growth. The department store market is expected to grow by 21.7% between 2011 and 2015. Operating in a business-to-consumer environment, these stores have a direct impact on human lives. Department store growth is fueled by consumers' increasing needs. These stores are also compelled to modify their operations to increase the speed and more »

  • 2 Retail Companies to Buy, 1 to Avoid

    By Madhukar Dubey - June 20, 2013 | Tickers: JCP, M, TJX

    According to Marketline, the global departmental stores industry is expected to reach a level of $395 billion in 2015, up by $38.5 billion from 2010. These stores are adopting various strategies like “online channels” and “better product quality” to adapt with the changing consumer’s purchasing behavior.

  • 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 »)

  • Should You Be Swayed by Celebrity?

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - June 12, 2013 | Tickers: TGT, TJX, WMT

    Recently, Yahoo! Shine featured a slideshow of celebrities shopping in the darnedest places: TJ Maxx, owned by The TJX Companies (NYSE: TJX), Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT), and Target (NYSE: TGT).

    Britain's Prince Harry was caught shopping at the European version of TJ Maxx. Britney Spears was wheeling out a heaping cart from Wal-Mart, and eight celebrities were snapped at Target: Glee's Lea Michele and Chris Colfer, Mad Men's more »

  • Why did This Stock Crash on Good News?

    By Timothy Green - June 11, 2013 | Tickers: GPS, LULU, TJX

    Imagine that you own stock in a company that is about to report its quarterly earnings. The company reports that revenue grew by 21% year-over-year, beating analyst estimates by nearly 5% in the process, and that same-store sales rose by a solid 7%. EPS bests analyst estimates by a few cents, and guidance for the next quarter is higher than analyst expectations. Seems like good news, right? Wrong. The shares more »

  • 3 Apparel Retail Stocks that May Catch Your Attention

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 »

  • Mixed Results From Retail's Best

    By RJ Towner - May 31, 2013 | Tickers: JWN, TJX, URBN

    The first quarter earnings season for retail has certainly been a bit of a mixed bag. Two of the largest retailers in the US, Wal-Mart and Target, reported negative same-store sales revealing cautious spending patterns from American consumers. On the other hand, home improvement giant Home Depot registered wonderful sales gains as the firm continues to ride the housing recovery. Let’s take a look at the results of some more »
