On CAPS, 90% of the 644 members who have rated TJX believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, NoblyNaive, succinctly summed up the TJX bull case for our community:

Stock is lagging sector (due for a pop). OK P/E. Good CAPS rating. Highly touted by [Jim Cramer ] on April 9, 2013.

Cramer also pointed out: 1) cool weather has put a damper on spending in the last month. 2) [J.C. Penney] has been losing market share, and the winners are the other well positioned retailers, of which TJX is one. Warmer weather, plus the implosion of [J.C. Penney] should give a bump to the sector.
