There's a bull market in the best run American retailers right now, “Mad Money” host Jim Cramer said Thursday. Just look at Cramer fave Macy’s, which isup 24 percent year-to-date.
“Macy’s is now barely a point and a half off it’s 52-week high,” he said, “in part because the American consumer is alive and well [and] spending like mad, but also because Macy’s has a phenomenal management—a team that understands how to entice shoppers into the stores and get them to buy things.”
The company recently posted “superb” same-store sales growth for November, beating analysts’ expectations with a 4.8 percent increase. That’s on top of its “fabulous” Black Friday numbers and the strong quarter it reported back in November.
"We're having the best years, in fact back-to-back two years, in a decade, so things are going very, very well," Macy's Chairman and CEO Terry Lundgren told Cramer.
And if the weather turns cold, it would be an extra boost for the retailer.
