Specialty retailers look for a comeback

|By:, SA News Editor

Keep an eye on specialty retailers, advises Topeka Capital's Dorothy Lakner.

A nice pickup in retail demand in May could be followed up by more strength in June with the economy stable, says the analyst.

If the stock market keeps moving higher and a potentially-disruptive West Coast port lockout can be avoided, the sector could be set for gains heading into the back to school and fall season.

Looking for a comeback: EXPR, RUE, ZUMZ, PSUN, ARO, AEO, ANF, CACH, BODY, CHS, CWTR, NWY, BEBE, ANN, CBK, GPS, GES.
