6 Clothing and Accessories Stocks to Buy

Many retail stocks have not performed as well as many investors would have liked this year. Fortunately for those holding these six clothing and accessories stocks, these companies are some of the few who came out on top.

I watch more than 5,000 publicly traded companies with my Portfolio Grader[1] tool, ranking companies by a number of fundamental and quantitative measures. This week, I’ve got six clothing and accessories stocks to buy.

Here they are, in alphabetical order. Each one of these stocks gets an “A” or “B” according to my research, meaning it is a “strong buy” or “buy.”

COH stock gets a “B” for sales growth, a “B” for the magnitude in which earnings projections have increased during the past month and an “A” for return on equity in my Portfolio Grader tool.
