Urban Outfitters URBN – Added to the Watchlist

Urban Outfitters (URBN) is higher on volume, as the stock moves off the rising 50d. Supporting this conclusion, we see institutions picking up shares of many of the retailers over the past week. In addition, the cycle began turning higher this week as we move into summer vacation.

More than likely, this cycle in retail will continue until extremes are reached. Watch other retailers like GOOS, WMT, WSM, ROST, and FIVE among others.

Urban Outfitters URBN has value at these levels, which compounds our interest.

Competitors in the group are also rising. We own shares in Canada Goose GOOS.

Other names in the group worth considering include specialty retailers like Williams Sonoma. WSM value versus future earnings value is shown below.




Williams Sonoma WSM has some work to do. That said, the stock is showing signs of buying. We might add this to the watchlist later in the week.
