The Buckle, Inc.: Solid Performing Specialty Retailer
Brick and mortar stores are back open, and sales have ramped higher. Last year online sales helped to make up for the major shortfall in physical store sales. Margin power remains strong and earnings have expanded. Brick and mortar shopping is alive and well, and BKE has an attractive valuation relative to peers. We really like the stock if shares dip to the $30s.
