Does Victoria have more secrets to share with investors?

L Brands (LB), the parent company of the iconic lingerie brand sure thinks so. Comparable store sales at Victoria’s Secret rose 4% in the most recent quarter, fueled by double-digit gains in bras, panties and fragrances.

But don’t think it’s just lingerie holding up LB stock — the rest of the company is also doing well. Gains at Bath & Body Works pushed overall same store sales up 3% in the most recent quarter.

All of these retail stocks are worth adding to your portfolios. But if you’re a selective investor, the ones with the biggest potential upside are Gap and Ralph Lauren.

As of this writing, Jonathan Berr did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
