Wouldn’t invest in this for the long-term, because the headwind of Department stores or brick-and-mortar type retailers is severe. People are getting involved with the ease of online shopping and its cost effectiveness.

The sector is under pressure and the stock has collapsed. He likes to find things that are under pressure. If this was the only company that looked like this, he wouldn’t have picked it, but a lot of retailers look like this. It stopped at $30 and has already rallied up 10%. Thinks it has a very, very good chance of getting back up to $40.

Have both Macy’s and Bloomingdale brands. Extremely well-managed. They are executing very well within store, e-commerce and their marketing initiatives. Revenues are 100% from the domestic US market. The improving US labour market and lower energy costs means more money for consumers to spend. 13X forward earnings with 10% long-term EPS growth.

Like this as well as Walmart, however it is more volatile, so it needs to be watched closer. Take profits when it's up.

Has been a good stock. Finds US department store retailing a very difficult thing to get his head around because it is so fashion oriented.

One of the largest department stores. Always do a great job of advertising. 1.) Much better purchasing strategy, which should improve costs and efficiencies. 2.) Greater mix towards branded products which helps mitigate the rising costs of raw materials. 3.) Great job on their online business with double-digit growth. 1.5% dividend, which has lots of room to grow.

Very cheap. Starting to get momentum. Looking for a discount to its intrinsic book value. Top picks are based on consumer discretionary spending due to lower interest rates.
