Be fearful when others are greedy. The shares have overrun their valuation. However I do believe in their long run prospects

Ross Stores stock roared higher after a stellar earnings report last week. However, the company is still reasonably priced in light of its long-term growth prospects. As a 100% domestic retailer that has a high tax burden, it would also be a big beneficiary if tax reform passes.

The most efficient off-price retailer serving a huge market. There are always more poor people than rich. Collectively they spend more than the rich.

Ross Stores Remains the Big Winner of Brick-and-Mortar Retail [outperforms TJX]

Adam Levine-Weinberg (TMFGemHunter) Aug 22, 2017:

‘‘‘
Ross Stores has consistently generated strong revenue and earnings growth over the past decade -— and the e-commerce revolution has done nothing to stop its momentum.

[…]

Plenty of room to run

Ross Stores has been posting double-digit earnings growth for years on end. The company has a very successful formula for long-term EPS growth: 5%-6% annual square-footage growth and 3%-5% comp-sales increases are sufficient to drive 7%-10% total revenue growth annually. Meanwhile, a program of steady share buybacks reduces the share count by 3%-4% every year.

As long as Ross Stores' profit margin remains strong, this formula will keep EPS growing at a double-digit rate. Given that American consumers are increasingly gravitating toward retailers like Ross Stores that are perceived to provide the most "value," this growth model could hold up for a long time.

Indeed, there's plenty of white space for Ross Stores to continue growing. The company only operates in 37 states today. It has no stores at all in several populous states, including New York, Ohio, Michigan, Massachusetts, and Minnesota. It also has plenty of room to grow in its existing markets -- especially for its smaller, lower-price "dd's DISCOUNTS" chain.

[*] Despite Ross Stores' ample growth opportunities, the stock trades for less than 17 times forward earnings. This puts it at a slight discount to the broader market, surprisingly enough.

Ross Stores almost certainly has above-average earnings growth potential. This makes it a great stock for long-term investors to buy and hold. I plan to do just that.
