"Although we have seen strong returns in the first quarter, we still believe that it is prudent to remain patient and await a more attractive entry environment before adding to, or establishing, positions across a sector that relies on consumer discretionary dollars that are increasingly being spent in other areas during this rebound in confidence and spending," KeyBanc analyst Dennis Forst wrote in a note.
