Making a nice move here. Seasonality starts late May. Just because it's run up, doesn't mean you can't do the trade. Costco is in the right place, right time. He'd wait a bit closer to May 26 to step in.

They're bringing back free samples. Comps vs. last year were spectacular. They continue to open news stories and invest in safety. What's not to like?

They delivered 17% sales growth, with food, liquor, fresh food and other categories way up. Will consumers continue to stuff their pantries? Yes. Wall Street missed the fact that CST is the last man standing, that smaller peers have closed during the pandemic so there's less competition now. Also, strong membership sign-up numbers helped. Great managers. COST is still growing like crazy, and it's still building its e-commerce operation.

(A Top Pick Mar 12/20, Up 33%) It's down slightly for the year, given the reopening rally, but COST will emerge as a post-Covid winner. Memberships provide strong revenue to make up weakness in other parts of their business. Their signature brand, Kirkland, is doing very well. They boast the best traffic growth among retailers. He expects a rise in membership fees that will increase revenues. COST has excelled during the pandemic and will continue. They've done a fine job in e-commerce.

Last week, analyst Larry Williams advised buying Walmart and Costco before Easter, because both tend to do well this time of year. the stocks moved up, though remember that these are "essential retailers" so their move up came at the expense of the non-essential stores. We're robbing Peter to pay Paul. Both have been punished recently for being unfashionable lockdown stocks and both deserve to be your in your portfolio.

A long-term winner. Drives revenue growth year after year. Expects double digit growth going forward. One of his favourites, and he would be comfortable owning it.

Great company, has gained market share. Benefitted from Covid. Very strong same store sales for 2020. Probably not repeatable for 2021, so stock's pulled back. Not cheap. Watch and see how it performs as the economy opens. Consumer spending patterns might change.

If it hits his target price he would love to own them. The Kirkland brand has a captive audience. The stock has come off. You could put a half position on now and wait to see if it drops another 10-15%. They are an excellent company.

Yesterday, COST reported a mixed quarter despite 15% sales growth. The valuation is ridiculously cheap now, but current market turbulence doesn't matter as investors bail on stocks like this. Costco is good for the long term, though. Keep buying as this falls.

They report Thursday. Everyone is selling this. It's been clobbered since they paid their $10 special dividend and has had no momentum. A great company he likes, but this always sells off right after a report, so wait before buying.

Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly COST is a company worth holding during periods of market uncertainty. Recently reported sales were up over 17% over the year and e-commerce sales were up over 105%. It is estimated the company added over $4 billion to its cash position over the year. It pays a small dividend, backed by a 28% payout ratio, but there are often special dividends offered. We would buy this with a stop loss at $285, looking to achieve $405 -- upside potential of about 20%. Yield 0.83% (Analysts’ price target is $400.37)
