For today’s bulletin, we take a look at Kohl’s (KSS). Kohl’s Corporation is become the most engaging retailer in America. Kohl’s Corporation remains headquartered in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee. Kohl’s offers quality, national and exclusive brands for customers, their families and their homes. In addition to powerful portfolio of only-at-Kohl’s brands, which includes well-known brands such as Simply Vera Vera Wang, Sonoma, APT 9, Croft & Barrow, Jennifer Lopez and Food Network, Kohl’s are the #1 retailer in the U.S. of many national brands such as Levi’s, Dockers and Columbia. Kohl’s are committed to delivering an easy, connected omnichannel experience for customers. One of the cornerstones of this strategy is Kohls.com. This approach has expanded to the top-rated Kohl’s mobile app, which features our easy-to-use digital wallet and Kohl’s Pay mobile payment offering. Kohl’s stores and website sell moderately-priced private label, exclusive and national brand apparel, footwear, accessories, beauty and home products.

We have focused a lot in the past on the struggling retail sector. Typically, these tales include discussions of internet giants like Amazon, Wal-Mart, and others and the inability of old-line brick-and-mortar retailers to meet the challenge of shoppers who prefer to spend money from their phones and desktop computers rather than travelling to a store for instant gratification.

Kohl’s had a good holiday shopping season, and investors have reacted positively to that news. The company lifted its guidance for the year due to that performance, and that also attracted investors. In addition, the company is NOT typically based at mall locations. Malls are dying, and avoiding those locales in favor of stand-alone locales is an advantage that basket cases such as Sears and JCPenney don’t often posses in this sector. Kohl’s also has a variety of important relationships with manufacturers such as Amazon, Nike, and UnderArmour which give it an advantage over rivals.

Below is our latest data for Kohl’s, our top STRONG BUY upgrade for the day.

ValuEngine updated its recommendation from BUY to STRONG BUY for Kohl’s on 2018-02-16. Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that Kohl’s has the probability to OUTPERFORM average market performance for the next year. The company exhibits ATTRACTIVE Momentum and Company Size.
