“Ross Stores, Inc. (ROST) has a downright enviable track record when it comes to accelerating monthly same-store sales—in May the bargain fashion chain reported an 8% jump in sales—leaving the 5.2% consensus estimate in the dust. And that is because Ross Stores is a lean, mean operating machine.
“Ross may have a smaller selection of products, but it is a smarter selection. While many of its competitors’ racks are overflowing with mismatched clothing, if you walk into one of the 1,000+ Ross locations, you’ll see a tight rein on inventory. Another thing that I love about this company is that it is nowhere near reaching market saturation. America has been hit with bargain-hunting fever, so Ross could easily double its number of stores and accelerate its bottom line. This Conservative stock is a fantastic long-term buy under $70.”
