NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The discount retailers are in the retail-wholesale sector, which is one of the five of 16 sectors that I gave an overweight rating on Tuesday in Cisco Joins List of 11 Buy-Rated Dow Stocks as Fundamentals Deteriorate. On June 3 I wrote, Discount Retailers Track Slow Consumer Spending where I profiled nine buy-rated discount retailers. Today these nine stocks remain buy-rated and seven have traded higher since the end of May.The headliner this week just as it was three months ago is Dollar General (DG - Get Report) which reported quarterly earnings pre-market on Wednesday. This discounter beat EPS estimates by 3 cents earning 77 cents a share. The stock traded to a new multi-year high at $57.42 despite a cautious outlook.
Big Lots, Dollar General, Costco, Remain Buy Rated
