7 Retail Stocks That May Still Ring the Register - 1 of 7

 

#1 - Costco (NASDAQ:COST)

Costco (NASDAQ:COST) is trading at the top of its 52-week range. However, there are times when that shouldn’t concern investors too much. We believe this is one of those times. There are a couple of reasons for that.

In the first place, Costco has not been subject to “leakage” as the company increased its subscription price. That’s an important “pass-through” cost because it allows analysts to get a better sense of the company’s revenue and earnings. After all, once consumers commit to the membership for a warehouse club, they are going to use it. That offers the company a predictable revenue stream.

Another reason investors should pay close attention to COST stock is the company’s recent price target and analyst upgrades. Costco has a solid balance sheet that shows revenue and earnings that are steadily growing as well as solid free cash flow. And, the company’s earnings are growing faster than its dividend which the company has increased in each of its last 18 years.
