I am going to put some of the cash I raised Thursday to work this morning by buying 1,000 shares of
. The sporting-goods retailer looks like it is ready to make a move back over $20 a share, and the recent earnings strength at competitors
Dick's Sporting Goods
Hibbett Sporting Goods
confirms my view that this space is very investible at current levels.
This purchase will give me 10,000 CAB shares, or around 5% of the portfolio.
P.S. While it is tempting to let some
go -- I have a 23% gain in my 2,500-share position -- I genuinely think that this
analogue is alive and well and that I should hold out to $80 before I take anything off the table. That said, if you believe I am being piggish, please feel free to sell. But the upside of having one housing play on the sheets is too great here, and this one's mine.
