    3 Retail Stocks to Buy As They Rise From the Ashes

    The past month's rousing market rally has been a rising tide lifting all boats. Every sector has participated in the broad-based boom, and some industries have even reclaimed all that was lost during December's disaster. The action in retail stocks has been particularly strong with many attractive stocks to buy. To assess the action, we'll use the SPDR Retail ETF (NYSE:XRT), which counts all of the sector's biggest companies among its holdings. Since bottoming at $38.10, XRT has climbed 15% to test the descending 50-day moving average. Two bullish developments from the past week suggest further upside could be in the offing. First, the down-gap caused by lousy earnings news from Macy's (NYSE:M) on Jan. 10 was rapidly reversed showing dip buyers remain aggressive. Second, XRT's ability to hold firm in the face of overhead resistance suggests sellers are thus far powerless to turn the fund lower. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * Top 10 Global Stock Ideas for 2019 From RBC Capital With that said, here are three retail stocks to buy that stand out among the rest in the space. ### Bed Bath and Beyond (BBBY) Bed Bath and Beyond (NASDAQ:BBBY) entered this month's earnings release in desperate need of a positive catalyst. Deteriorating fundamentals have driven BBBY stock down as much as 87% from its 2013 peak before the recent rebound. Fortunately, the company was able to deliver earnings that beat estimates (18 cents versus 17 cents) and report improved guidance for 2019. The stock soared almost 30% in the three days after earnings before pulling back on profit-taking. This three-day retracement is creating an attractive low-risk entry for traders anticipating further upside. BBBY is now above its 20-day and 50-day moving averages, so bulls have wrested control of the short-term trend. And volume patterns look constructive with large volume accompanying the breakout and light volume during this week's retreat. Once BBBY breaks above a prior day's high, buy the May $14/$19 bull call spread for around $1.75. The risk is limited to $1.75, and the reward is limited to $3.25. ### Nike (NKE) The technical posture of Nike (NYSE:NKE) has improved considerably since Christmas. With the 18% rally off the lows, NKE stock has climbed back above all major moving averages, returning to key horizontal resistance near $79. This level has kept a lid on the shares ever since October, which means its eventual break will signal a major victory for bulls. It will also set Nike shares up for a run toward their 2018 high of $86.04. * 10 Growth Stocks With the Future Written All Over Them Implied volatility has come in considerably, making long premium plays more tempting than short ones. Buy the March $80/$85 bull call spread for around $1.50. The risk is limited to $1.50, and the reward is capped at $3.50. ### Lululemon Athletica (LULU) Source: ThinkorSwim Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU) rounds out today's trio and carries one of the best looking charts in the retail sector. Its recent trend reversal higher received a boost on Monday when the company raised its guidance for fourth-quarter earnings. LULU stock gapped up and has continued climbing each day since. It's now testing an important horizontal resistance threshold around $147. Breaking above it should clear the runway for a ramp toward its all-time high of $164.79. And with all major moving averages now rising beneath the price, I see few reasons why LULU won't continue pushing north. To bank on the continued upside, buy the March $145/$155 bull call spread for $4.25. The risk is limited to $4.25, and the reward is limited to $5.75. As of this writing, Tyler Craig didn't hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Could Home Depot Turn Around this Year?

    Last year was tough for home improvement retailers, including Home Depot (HD), whose stock price fell 9.3%. The stock fell despite Home Depot beating analysts’ EPS expectations in the first three quarters of 2018, as investors grew skeptical about increased interest rates and the weak housing market. Weakness in broader equity markets—the S&P 500 fell 6.2%—didn’t help, either.

    Don’t Let the Rally In Bed Bath & Beyond Stock Fool You

    Shares of struggling merchandise retailer Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ:BBBY) surged as much as 20% after the company reported third-quarter numbers that included a bullish forecast from management. Specifically, management said that due to the early success of a few profit-optimizing initiatives, fiscal 2019 earnings are expected to be flat with fiscal 2018 earnings, and fiscal 2020 earnings are expected to be up from both. The Street had been sitting at earnings-per-share of $2 for fiscal 2018, $1.60 for fiscal 2019 and $1.40 for fiscal 2020. Thus, the guide for $2-plus EPS in fiscal 2019 and 2020 was a huge 20%-plus lift. Consequently, BBBY stock rallied 20%. But, don't let this rally fool you. Bed Bath & Beyond still missed on revenues and comparable sales in the quarter. The comparable sales miss was wide, and comps are still negative. Gross margins are still falling. So are operating margins. Profits are down, too. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips In other words, nothing about the current numbers warranted a 20% rally in BBBY stock. Instead, the rally was powered entirely by what management said is going to happen. Granted, management knows their business better than anyone, so the guide shouldn't be disregarded. But, it also seems ambitious given current trends. In the big picture, a lot needs to go right in order for earnings to grow over the next several years. If that does happen, BBBY stock could essentially double. But, it probably won't happen, and as such, the stock is best avoided until there's confirmation in the numbers that presently negative trends are reversing course. ### BBBY Stock: The Quarter Was Still Awful By most retail standards, Bed Bath & Beyond's third quarter was pretty bad. * 10 A-Rated Stocks the Smart Money Is Piling Into Comparable sales dropped 1.8%. The consensus was for a 0.3% drop, so that's a wide miss. It's also a 2018 low, as comps in the first two quarters of the year dropped 0.6%. Plus, it's lower than the comp drop in 2017 (down 1.3%) and 2016 (down 0.6%). In other words, comparable sales trends are still negative, and arguably only getting worse. Meanwhile, gross margins are still falling. In the quarter, gross margins fell back by 210 basis points year-over-year. Granted, that's better than the second quarter's 270 basis point compression. But, it's also worse than the first quarter's 140 basis point compression. Also, margins have come down a lot from their peak, and the fact that they are still falling by several hundred basis points year-over-year is a bearish trend. Overall, this is still a declining comp, eroding margin company with trends that aren't getting better yet. Those trends could get better. But, a lot has to go right in order for that to happen. ### A Lot Has to Go Right Bed Bath & Beyond's struggles aren't anything new. For several years, this has been a retailer with negative comparable sales growth, eroding margins, and falling relevancy in an increasingly competitive retail world. Management implied that this era is coming to an end. Specifically, due to a few profit-optimizing initiatives, management expects margins to finally stabilize and potentially even improve over the next several years. That's a tall order. Gross margins have been in perpetual decline for most of this decade due to elevated competition. That competition is only getting bigger, stronger and fiercer than ever before, with Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Target (NYSE:TGT) all aggressively turning into low-cost, one-stop-shop retail destinations with unparalleled convenience. In that environment, it's tough to see BBBY's gross margins heading higher. Management could cut lower margin SKUs and/or not engage in price wars with the Big Three. It seems that's what they are planning to do. That will preserve gross margin. It will also accelerate the comparable sales erosion. If comps keep falling, or start falling by more, there's no way the company can leverage operating expenses and pull down the SG&A rate. Big picture, it's tough to see BBBY stock benefiting from a trio of positive comps, rising gross margins and falling opex rates over the next several years. If you get all three, the company could reasonably do about $3 in EPS in five years. A historically average 10X forward multiple on that implies a $30 long-term price target. But, because of the aforementioned competitive risks, you likely won't get all three. Instead, you will gross margin expansion at the expense of sales growth, and that will lead to -- at best -- stable earnings. If BBBY stock is supported by stabilized $2 EPS in five years, then an average 10X forward multiple on that implies a four-year forward price target of $20. Discounted back by 10% per year, that equates to a present value for BBBY stock of between $13 and $14. * 7 Pharmaceutical Stocks That Just Raised Prices This Year That's exactly where BBBY stock trades today, so realistic growth assumptions imply shares are fairly valued here. ### Bottom Line on BBBY Stock The quarter wasn't good, the guide is promising and there's finally a light at the end of this dark tunnel for Bed Bath & Beyond stock. But, that doesn't mean it's time to buy into the stock. Instead, Bed Bath & Beyond stock seems fully valued after its post-earnings pop, and further upside will have to be confirmed by an improvement in the numbers, which hasn't happened just yet. As of this writing, Luke Lango was long AMZN and TGT. ### More From InvestorPlace * 2 Toxic Pot Stocks You Should Avoid * 10 Key Emerging-Market Stocks to Buy for Contrarian Investors * 7 Stocks at Risk of the Global Smartphone Slowdown * 7 Pharmaceutical Stocks That Just Raised Prices This Year Compare Brokers The post Don't Let the Rally In Bed Bath & Beyond Stock Fool You appeared first on InvestorPlace.
