Down-and-outers are finally getting some love.
It has been a lackluster day of trading so far, with all the major indices slightly down and the Nasdaq sporting the largest percentage loses on the day so far. A view just out from Bank of America Merrill Lynch sees lower used car pricing, and overall unit volume heading lower in the U.S. This report is hammering auto dealer stocks like Lithia Motors (LAD) in trading today. Amazon's (AMZN) surprise purchase of Whole Foods Market (WFM) is hitting other grocery concerns and their suppliers hard. The retail sector, top to bottom, is just one tough space to make money in right now.
Stocks that 'Joe Six-Pack' might be interested in.
The car dealer has an attractive risk/reward profile.
