I Still Don't Get It.
Tue, May 22, 2018

This is one of today's stock market losers.

I don't get Kohl's...at all.

First, as a customer, I am not impressed with the stores.

The stores I have been to are pretty large and seem to have quite a selection, but the prices seemed kinda high for me. (Yes, I know about the Kohl's Cash thing.)

Also, there is the Amazon factor. For me, it's much easier to shop on Amazon for many if not all the items at Kohl's.

Plus, I (almost) always remember to login to my ebates account first to get an extra 2% to 10% off my Amazon purchases. It's a real thing!

Secondly, as an investor, I can't get into this stock.

Since 2000, the price has basically been in a sideways range between $40 and $70.

Also, it looks like moves up and down are very rapid, which is a little scary, right?

I actually look for stocks in a trading range.

More specifically, I look for stocks in an upward trading range.

I try to avoid downward or sideways trending stocks.

By the way, it's near the top of that range right about now.

It's down 7% on earnings today.

Even if or when this stock goes back down to the $40 level, I still wouldn't get in.

It's entirely possible I am missing something here.

I have some doubts and you know the saying, "When in doubt, stay out."

If you are looking for an offline consumer retail discretionary stock, I have one for you. 

Check out ROST.

Actually, I have another one, TJX.

Ok, that's it.
