BUY on WEAKNESS
Is best in show. The street worries about its margins, but that's wrong. Costco believes in sales growth which he expects to be good. People hate these kinds of stocks now.
department stores
TOP PICK
If you own this and Amazon, you're covered in retail--online and brick/mortar. Their membership model is genius--customers keeps coming back. As Costco grows, their international footprint expands. (Analysts’ price target is $567.81)

BUY
A Covid winner with staying power It peaked in April then got hit hard on recessionary fears. But that was a buying opportunity and is now coming back. It's ridiculous it was considered a Covid play, because Costco offers great discounts from being in bulk. Fine for a recession.
department stores
TOP PICK
Expecting company to benefit from pricing power during inflationary time. Stickiness of membership is very strong element of the company. Strong business model with excellent management. Slowing economy will present opportunity as more customers shop for low priced goods.
department stores
HOLD
Likes consumer staples when the economy decelerates. COST is different from WMT and TGT, in that its membership renewal rate is very high. Tightly controlled selection means they can demand lower pricing for volume.
department stores
BUY
Sales were up 20% in June and traffic up 10% though trading at a slightly pricey 36x.
department stores
TOP PICK
Has picked it before. They boast $225 billion revenues are expected in the US this year; they continue to build that revenue, despite the pandemic. They enjoy strong loyalty; 92% membership renewal rate. Efficient, clean stores encourage high store traffic. They sell a concentrated number of items vs. other retailers. Customers are higher-income. This offers growth and defence. (Analysts’ price target is $557.81)
department stores
BUY on WEAKNESS
Valuation in mid-30s has always been outside his comfort zone. One misstep creates a lot of air beneath it. Great model, as 90% of earnings come from membership fees. He'd buy on a lower multiple. Confidence in long-term leadership.
department stores
SELL
Model price of $255, negative 42%. No history of stock splits. Would have to get back to $277 before he'd be even remotely interested. Consumer discretionary will get hurt in a recession. A lot of air will come out. Earnings today after the close.
department stores
WATCH
It reports next week. He's watching it closely, but it's a fragmented market with operator working differently. He expects good numbers.
department stores
WATCH
75% of their business is recurring membership fees that may rise this summer. A stellar company with a good balance sheet. It's on her list. Trades at 31x and down 27% YTD, so it's getting interesting.
department stores
BUY
They get a lot of foot traffic for gas; revenues are sustainable. They could report better next week than expected.
department stores
WAIT
Best in class. Not cheap for a value investor. Would be on his radar screen if it came down another 10-15%. Brilliant management, great company.
