Retail Stocks

Consumers dictate the economy, so it is only fair that retail stocks have a tendency to dominate the market. Superstores such as Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Target (NYSE:TGT) have come to lead the sector, although smaller cap stores such as Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE:DKS) and American Eagle (NYSE:AEO) make interesting plays, as they cater to specific fields.

Retail stocks have an optimistic forecast, assuming the market continues to recover. Should the market falter, retail stocks may plummet. If you choose to invest in retail, watch the market extremely carefully.
