2 Retail Stocks to Buy and 1 to Avoid Today

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Jim Mueller and analyst Jason Moser discuss topics around the investing world.

The holiday season was better than many expected, producing several winners, but there were still some disappointments. Jim, a  Motley Fool Stock Advisor analyst, talks with fellow analyst Jason about one loser and then gives two winners he likes now -- one fairly obvious and one not so obvious.

To learn about a few, we invite you to take a look at The Motley Fool's special free report: "The Death of Wal-Mart: The Real Cash Kings Changing the Face of Retail." In it, you'll see which retailers are able to consistently outperform and how two cash kings are planning to ride the waves of retail's changing tide. You can access it by clicking here.
