In the post-COVID world, the last place I would look for a great stock is in retail. I mean, it’s pretty obvious that shut-downs would put companies like this on the back foot. They would be reeling for weeks, months, possibly even years, trying to fight back and earn all those lost dollars. So, it was so surprising for me to find that one of these stocks was not only ranked a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), but that they were positioned to make a mighty come back.
