What Gap's Earnings Mean for Investors

In today's edition, analysts Austin Smith and Andrew Tonner discuss what Gap's impressive earnings mean for investors. Gap joins the ranks of a few clothing retail stores such as TJ Maxx and Ross Stores that are performing exceptionally well right now. Austin believes their outperformance is driven by their everyday value portfolio that resonates well with consumers right now -- as well as a hefty domestic exposure.

The success of these companies highlights the importance of buying what you know. Had savvy retail investors picked up shares of the companies they were shopping at during the beginning of the year, they'd be sitting pretty right now.
