Millenial retail stocks are tipped to be making a comeback, such as Superdry PLC (LON:SDRY), Wickes Group PLC (LON:WIX) and Frasers Group PLC (LON:FRAS).
Will The Millennial Retail Stocks Recover?
Shaun Murison, Senior Market Analyst at IG comments on whether the demand in this sector is robust enough to help these companies recover:
“‘Millennial’ stocks such as Superdry, Frasers, Wickes are not seeing investor demand at present as these counters remain negative for the year to date.
Demand for equities, in general, has been soft as rates are on the rise and the attraction of interest-bearing assets finds increased appeal. Stocks tipped for growth like these brands typically underperform within the equity asset class when markets are under pressure.
Stock markets are still in defensive mode on fears of slowing growth which could lead to a recessionary environment. Typically market uncertainty will see defensive, well-established stocks with strong balance sheets preferred for those looking to still invest in equity markets over this period.”
