Urban Outfitters


has been a solid, profitable holding for me over the past seven months. While I believe the company has several quarters of above-average growth ahead of it, the current market conditions do not warrant sitting on a 22% gain with a retailer that trades at 30 times expected full-year earnings.

After you read this note, I'm going to sell my final 1,000 shares of Urban. This trade will take my cash position back up to about 2% of the portfolio and give me an open spot for a new name in the portfolio.

Also, just a reminder that I'd be adding to my

UnitedHealth Group


stake down here at $90.25 if my restrictions allowed.

At the time of publication, Cramer was long Urban Outfitters and UnitedHealth Group.
