1-Month Relative Strength: 33.85%
Nearest Resistance: $62Nearest Support: $56 Dillard's (DDS - Get Report) is another retail chain that's enjoying significant relative strength over the broad market in 2012. Not surprisingly, with investors still knee-deep in the tail end of earnings season, Dillard's rally has been fuelled by the firm's fourth quarter numbers. The firm announced earnings of $2.21 in February, increasing the firm's profitability by 43% versus the same quarter last year. As we head into March trading, that momentum appears to be in full force. >>5 Big Stocks to Trade for March Gains Shares are consolidating a bit in today's session, cooling off after rallying for each of the last eight trading days. While that's been great for existing shareholders, for traders new to DDS, this setup looks less appealing than the others we've looked at. It's very possible that we'll see a throwback to test support at $56. Wait for a new 52-week high before buying.
