Value Stock Geek, well known by his Twitter handle @ValueStockGeek, was bullish on shares of certain retail companies.
Speaking on the podcast in June 2019, the guest said E-Commerce had not yet destroyed old-fashioned retail commerce. “The retail sector is now a hated and beaten-up sector and it’s mainly because of Amazon and E-commerce,” he said at the time. “But I think the current narrative is overblown…right now, E-Commerce as a percentage of retail sales represents about 10% of all retail sales. That means that 90% of all retail transactions still happen in the store.”
Value Stock Geek’s favorite stocks were Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE: DSK) and Urban Outfitters (NASDAQ: URBN).
