Retail - Defensive


The retail – defensive industry includes companies that engage in the sale of essential products like groceries and pharmaceutical products. Such companies include grocery stores, discount stores and wholesalers. Key financial metrics for this sector include comparable store sales and number of stores. Unlike the retail – apparel and specialty industry, this retail industry is noncyclical: even during weak economies, consumers will still purchase groceries and pharmaceutical products. Companies in this industry include Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT), Costco Wholesale Corp. (COST), Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (WBA) and Target Corp. (TGT).
