  • bRobert: $UAL nh Extended Partials $AL following this pb for tag of bottom of channel High growth Cheap but don't fight the tape $SAVE sideways consolidation at top of range. Partial profits on Swing trade from low. Watching for range breakout $KKR retest of breakout. Watching for bounce $XRT $RTH pullback as expected $RTH was parabolic Look for the good merchandise to come in to a more favorable buy zone eg $HD $TJX $BURL $COST $WMT $TGT sideways consolidation allowing 50d to catch up prior to next level move
  • bRobert: $ROST $125 WEEKLY target Look for pb/bounces $COST $300+ $DG $145 $WMT $BURL $210 Most hard to buy. Easy to hold. Watch for opportunities $RTH flag Very extended/overbought. parabolic move. It has to come in for a rest soon
  • bRobert: @CraigReynolds $RTH $COST $DG still rising $COST $300 plus but needs a rest You can just buy the $RTH after a decent pullback Diverse group of top flight companies
  • CraigReynolds: @bRobert $RTH $COST $DG $DG is one of my stables, for junk to snack on, dangerous place because of type 2. $COST is wife's volume buys. In small with both, looking to add small again if allowed.

  • gvianello: @Bridget is $COST breaking out?
  • Bridget: @gvianello $COST This has been breaking out since early June. Now is not the time to be buying.
  • grcjr: @gvianello @Bridget $COST - set a new ATH today. Currently touching the upper 3stdBB. I agree with @Bridget that it needs to rest a bit, not a time to buy. I have a position. Been taking some profits but keeping a position.
  • BocaRick: @champ $HD $Barron's article today on HD and $LOW. Also, PM Cramer on CNBC came up with "WATCH" a new stock list for $WMT $AMZN $TGT $COST $HD.
  • debeers: @BocaRick $HD $Barron $LOW $WMT $AMZN $TGT $COST In my opinion -It would be really helpful if Cramer were more precise and less concerned with being "cute." He is addicted to the limelight for which there is presently no cure and is desperate to regain the notoriety accorded him when the anagram "FANG" caught on.

  • debeers: $LEVI- vs. $BOOTLesson: if your main store is JC penney which is a mall store, you got what you deserved. Stick with the stand alones: $BOOT/$COST. Levi overspent to get thefiling in the first place. Dumbo move. Does Levis have Boots, hats, jewelry, loyal customers who don't care about sales? Nope.

  • CraigReynolds: $OLLI -- Have position and looking to add if opportunity presents itself after tomorrow depending on Retail Sales numbers. Worth watching this company, may be opportunity. Earnings not until 6/4. Down yesterday but has held up prior day sell offs. Look at chart. According to Credit Suisse has target 103. They believe they could benefit from Tariff Anxiety in Retail Sector. Retail numbers for sector will be reported 5/15. $OLLI according to Credit Suisse could create closeout opportunities from others retail companies pain. $WMT will be another, they have earnings 5/16 and $COST earnings 5/30. These 3 companies seem to have ways according to news sources I have researched to benefit from tariffs anxieties, yes tariffs will effect but the are working there plan. Worth watching and listen for news on the hows.
