During Tuesday night's Mad Money program the Lightning Round was not interrupted by a White House announcement. One caller asked Jim Cramer about L Brands Inc. (LB) : "The mall is going to be the last place to recover. I'd look at Williams-Sonoma Inc. (WSM) ," said Cramer.
Let's do a compare and contrast of these two stocks.
In the weekly bar chart of LB, below, we can see that prices have been in a downtrend for the past three years. Looking at an even longer price chart (not shown) we find that prices peaked in late 2015 around $100.
With prices down around $10 now it has been a hard fall. The 40-week moving average line is bearish and so are the On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line and the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) oscillator. With no early signs of a bottom showing this is not an attractive looking stock.
