    Costco Stock Is a Long-Term Winner, but Valuation Is Pretty Full

    Amid the recent market sell-off, retail giant Costco (NASDAQ:COST) managed to report robust September sales numbers which smashed expectations out of the water and underscored that the U.S. economy is currently firing on all cylinders. The strong numbers provided a lift to Costco stock, which has been dinged recently due to a weak guide and broad market weakness. A month ago, Costco stock was trading north of $240.

    12 Things Retirees Should Buy at Costco

    American shoppers are going gray. Chalk it up to aging baby boomers born between 1946 and 1964. There are roughly 74 million of them alive today, still outpacing millennials, with the first wave of boomers already entering retirement. And boomers like to shop. In particular, they like to shop at Costco. More older shoppers prefer the warehouse club over popular retailers such as Walmart and Target, and boomers are more likely than millennials to renew their Costco memberships. So it makes perfect sense that Costco caters to retirees and near-retirees, despite the stereotype that it only sells bulk items that are too much for an empty nest. As a boomer and regular Costco shopper, I already knew this from personal experience, but recent research trips to my local warehouse clubs revealed even more deals aimed at the mature market that I hadn't noticed before. Here are a dozen things I found that uniquely appeal to retirees. Check them out. See Also: Best Kirkland Products You Should Buy at Costco
