The Top Retail Stock to Trade This Summer

The retail sector is booming this summer as investors shake off inflation fears, and today, I’m bringing you a profit play on the cream of the retail crop.

If you’ve been following along at my free newsletter, Straight-Up Profits, you know I haven’t been able to stop talking about Hibbett Inc. (NASDAQ: HIBB) over the last year or so. And for good reason – it was a staple during lockdowns, as a top seller of at-home workout equipment. That won’t be changing now on the other side of the pandemic, as the go-to one-stop shop for all your little league, recreational, and pro-sporting needs.

The stock is already up 97% year to date, and the summer runup’s just getting started…

Check out the video below to see how to play it…
