March 05, 2010 – Comments (8) | RELATED TICKERS: DXLG , KIRK , ZUMZ

So, on Monday afternoon, 4 trading days ago, I make this list of 14 retail stocks I thought will outperform the market.

Today, all of those 14 stocks are in green:

CMRG up 5.5% (up 10% since my post)

KIRK up 5.2% (up 12% since my post)

ZUMZ up 5% (up 22.8% since my post)

FINL up 3.7% (up 8.2%)

BONT up 3.7% (up 14.4%)

CHRS up 3% (up 9.6%)

PSS up 2.8% (up 3.1%)

LIZ up 2.7% (up 0.3%)

JCP up 2.3% (up 7.9%)

ANN up 2.1% (up 3%)

TLB up 1.8% (down 1.7%)

SKS up 1.8% (up 3.4%)

JNY up 1.5% (up 6.2%)

KSS up 1.3% (up 1%)

 

 If this is not HOT, I don’t know what is… :)

It's hot Dragon, but I still don't like retail. Just a personal quirk.

Focus on Stocks That Fund Managers Need

By Jim Cramer

About this article:
We're in one of those moments when many mutual fund managers are beside themselves because they are in stocks that are going higher but not going high enough. So, if you are in retail, you need to be in Abercrombie & Fitch, not Wal-Mart. If you are in tech, you have to be in Apple, not Hewlett-Packard. For industrials, you have to be in Eaton or Emerson Electric, not General Electric, which continues to trade more like a financial. Restaurants? Panera not McDonald's. And on and on.

Today, after less than 2 weeks since I said retail is HOT, 10 out of 14 stocks from my list are up more than 5%.

ZUMZ is up 30%, BONT is up 28%, CMRG is up 17%, SKS and KIRK are up 11%, JCP 9%,...

Not too bad, if you ask me...

Remember what happens everytime you start getting excited about a sector... it implodes usually 2 weeks later. Do I need to give the red thumb of death to Bon Ton again?

I don't think your red thumbs are working on my media stocks, so I'm not afraid... :)
