Company Description

Why We Like It:
Retail stocks were showing relative strength today and the XRT ETF hit a new high. ROST is an apparel retailer and shares were outperforming the broader market with a +2.2% gain. This is a breakout past the mid-April high. Speaking of the mid-April high, the move was fueled by better than expected March same-store sales growth.

Today's high was $65.17. I am suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $65.25. If triggered our target is $69.00.

Trigger @ 65.25

- Suggested Positions -
