I've waited for a while for an actionable set-up to long COST, and I believe it's coming soon.
In my opinion, COST is a kind of company that is both great for trading and investing.
In terms of mid-term to long-term investment, it's nonsense to put stop loss only 2% away, so if I were in the trade I prefer using at least 149.99 of even all the way back to 141.99.
While as the Bat trade actually failed, I may wait for another set-up to get involved with the stock.
Most important of all, this downside move since the AMZN-WFM deal had nothing to do with COST's fundamental, which is kind of a systematic risk event on all the retailers and wholesalers.
COST remain strong despite on-line shopping being a huge trend all these years; I don't really think when the on-line shopping giant acquire a huge physical retailer will hurt the business too much more, or at least not that fast yet.
On-line shopping is no doubt the future, while the expression is true for all these years.
I don't think AMZN-WFM deal will do much harm to COST's business, at least not that fast, so the pullback is a huge overreaction and it creates recent buying opportunity for COST.
