Retailers have been going berserk since Trump won the election. And with black Friday coming up, investors usually chase retailers up more than they should. Today $CAL (Caleres stock) reported in-line earnings and yearly guidance but the stock was taken up +17% on the day. We thought this was a classic example of black Friday retailers chasing as well as end of the year sheep portfolio managers trying to catch the S&P index performance by buying anything that was making new highs on the daily charts.
We initiated a short position in $CAL at $33.27 and added to the position into weakness as we saw sellers come in. Once it went below vwap we started to take profits and close out the position.
