5 Clothing and Accessories Stocks to Flaunt

Apparel in need of a round of applause

   

Like many big name department stores, these companies have benefited from the large number of consumers flocking to malls and online shopping after unemployment numbers decreased and consumers have become more confident in their spending capabilities. Even in 2011, these stocks kept pushing through what was an incredibly volatile year. Investors that held onto these clothing and accessories stocks lucked out over the past 12 months with some returns reaching well over 50%.

I watch more than 5,000 publicly traded companies with my Portfolio Grader tool, ranking companies by a number of fundamental and quantitative measures. And this week, I’ve got five clothing and accessories stocks for you to flaunt.

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.”
