Bob Lang: Now finally, ahead of tonight's earnings on Costco, let's take a look at it. It's one-- it's certainly been a name that's been solid in the portfolio for many years. The company is really-- we all know Costco is second to none as a top brand premier retailer out there, even during the economic downturn. We should see Costco continue to perform at a pretty high level. The chart is interesting here. Flirting with that 500 level once again, we talked about that as a possible area where buyers and sellers have a bit of a tug of war.
The midpoint range of the 2022 low's about 400, the high's roughly about 610 to 620. We're nearly oversold here right now since falling about 14% from the August highs. But we'll see what happens after earnings come out tonight. The stock remains a 1 rating in the AAP portfolio, and which is basically a buy at any time. We'll have a chart on Costco a little bit later on today so look for that in your email, and a preview of earnings a little bit later on today.
