Although retail is looking good in the 4th quarter with holiday sales driving prices up, first quarter will not look as good. I’ve picked 3 of my favorite stocks at the moment to follow into the first quarter to see how they do. $AAPL, $WAG & $RAD All looking like pretty favorable buys right now with AAPL down just over 1% , WAG is looking to bounce down just under 1% & RAD although it’s had a major falling out, is reaching a bottom and is up 3.88% today. Buying now, and looking for that peak right before first quarter, when all comes down. The first quarter for ANY retail store is generally the worst of the year, since most people deplete all their monetary resources during the holiday season. With taxes, and large credit card bills due in the first quarter, we’re going to see the general retail market deflate.
