I'm basking in the glow of the Trump economy.

Meijer is a great offering in the Midwest for this market segment.

They're mostly located near KMarts and mall locations of Sears. They're going to benefit from their demise where people were shopping for small appliances and low-end clothing. Unlike Kohl's which operates standalone stores, Targets anchors strip shopping centers.

If you bought Sears and one of Target, Costco, or Walmart, you would've made money in the last year. Even the laggard Walmart is up twice as many points as Sears has lost.

The economy was great 6-12 months before the last financial crisis.. At a point in time sure things look great but dig just below the surface and one will see major problems ahead.
